Carlos Pena

Daily fantasy sports sites take many statistics into account when determining salary values. The more exact the salary for a player is in relation to his expected performance, the harder it is to gain an edge against your competitors, effectively making no one fantasy sports participant better than the other. That being said, most sites don't take everything into account when posting salaries for players each day. One way to gain an edge is looking at specific hitter versus pitcher matchups each day. If we find that a particular hitter absolutely kills the starter he is going against that day, we might find value in the price of the player in relation to his actual salary. Below is a list of those players updated daily.
