The “real” Opening Day has finally arrived where every player and fan anticipates the first crack of the bat and sparkling defensive play. It is also time for DFS experts and players to get reacquainted with their MLB DFS process and try to uncover new statistics to evaluate and new strategies to explore to select the right players and build the right lineup to take home the top prize in a tournament.

Here at DailyOverlay, we will help provide you with who the top MLB experts are when it comes to recommending players. We will provide the MLB Industry Consensus article each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday aggregating together numerous sites and experts to give you a list of which players are being selected the most often for each given day. We will also then grade these experts to provide you with information on which sites you should be including in your daily process to evaluate the player pool. The Industry Consensus can also serve as a good measure of which players are going to be the most owned to help you think about contrarian strategies for players to use in large GPP tournaments.

Finally, we will be also providing some example lineups for FanDuel and DraftKing each day primarily based off of the Industry Consensus list to consider using or tweaking for your own use. Look for these lineup examples about a half hour before lineup lock.

Today I will look to provide both an Early Slate and Night Slate of Industry Consensus articles and lineups. Below are the expert consensus picks for the Early Slate today based on 9 expert sites reviewed. We will look to add more as the season progresses. Happy Opening Day!
