Full list of Opening Day DFS prices for Yankees-Nationals, Giants-Dodgers

Major League Baseball is back this week, and that means daily fantasy is upon us. We’ve got a look at early DFS salaries for Opening Day.

Major League Baseball has begun playing scrimmage games, and we are now just a little over 72 hours from the start of the 2020 regular season. On Thursday, the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals will host the New York Yankees, with first pitch scheduled for 7:08 p.m. ET. That will be followed on the west coast by the Los Angeles Dodgers hosting the San Francisco Giants, with first pitch scheduled for 10:08 p.m. ET. Both games will air on ESPN.

DraftKings will be offering Showdown and Classic contests for the opener, and late last week they posted salaries for the two-game Classic contest. We’ve posted full prices below.

The Opening Day starters will be Gerrit Cole vs. Max Scherzer in the first game and then Johnny Cueto vs. Clayton Kershaw in the second half of the doubleheader. Cole is $10,000 to Scherzer’s $8,600, while Kershaw prices at $7,700 to Cueto’s $5,000. If you use odds to influence your DFS considerations, the pricing makes sense. The Yankees are -139 favorites while the Dodgers are -335 favorites.

Where it gets interesting for the starters is how you want to consider innings pitched and a starter win in your process. All four starters are workhorses, but they are also pitching the season-opener after an delayed and then abbreviated spring training. Pitchers often have an edge over hitters in the early part of the season, but for the price of these starters, a limit on innings and win potential has to be a factor in which of the pitchers you roll with on Thursday.

Here is a full rundown of pricing to get you ready for the start of daily fantasy baseball!
