Sale will face the Orioles in Fenway Park. He’s the highest priced pitcher, and the Orioles will put quite a few righties in the lineup. He may give up a few runs, but the fantasy points will come from strikeouts. The Orioles strike out 27.5% of the time, highest rate in the league. On a slate filled with aces, lineups, umpires, and weather will determine who the best option is, but Sale is a great place to start.
Strasburg will face the Rockies in Nationals Park. The Rockies will be without Nolan Arenado and potentially Gerrardo Parra, which helps Strasburg’s projection. Strasburg is a heavy favorite, and has an OTT (see pitcher chart) of just 3 runs. He’s also $1,100 cheaper than Sale on DraftKings.

There are some great pitching options on Sunday’s slate. All three of these pitchers are heavy favorites, have low OTTs, and have strikeout upside. They are priced within $500 of each other and should be strongly considered for tournaments, and may be in play for cash games depending on opposing lineups, umpires, and weather.
