Friday night features a full 15-game slate with a lot of solid pitching options to choose from. Here are a few of my favorites.


Madison Bumgarner (FD-$11,500 / DK-$13,000)

Bumgarner is the highest priced pitcher on the slate today and will get a negative park adjustment going to Yankees Stadium but will face a Yankees’ lineup that has struggled against lefties this season with bottom five rankings in wOBA and wRC+. Bumgarner is a solid Cash game option but you may want to go a different way in GPPs with numerous solid pitching options at cheaper prices on the slate.


Tanner Roark (FD-$8,700 / DK-$10,500)

Roark ranks as one of my top pitchers on the entire slate making him a solid Cash or GPP play. He will face the Padres who rank in the bottom three in K%, wOBA and wRC+ against righties this season. Roark is also a huge favorite for a win.

Gerrit Cole (FD-$8,500 / DK-$7,400)

Cole will be making just his second start since returning from injury which has helped keep his price down. He will be pitching at home as a huge favorite against the Phillies who rank in the bottom three in wOBA and wRC+ against righties this season. I like Cole as a GPP option.


Jonathan Gray (FD-$7,700 / DK-$8,400)

If there is ever a night to use a pitcher at Coors Field tonight could be the night with Gray as a strong favorite pitching against the Braves’ offense that ranks dead last in wOBA, ISO and wRC+ against righties this season. Gray is worth a GPP flier.
