FREE MLB DFS Hitter Projections – DraftKings MLB & FanDuel MLB – Friday Main Slates – 5/17

MLB DFS Hitter Projections

The projections below are created from our custom MLB model for DraftKings and FanDuel. Projections will be updated for any injury/lineup change that breaks before lock as best as possible, lineups will be confirmed and updated as they are released.

Notes will be provided between updates as time allows. Bold text in the “Update Notes” line will be the most recent reporting, if the status line next to the time stamp is red and says “pending” the update to include the bold text news is in the works, while all of the non-bold news has been updated in the previous run; if it says “updated” in green, all of the news has been accounted for in the current projections. When in doubt or unavailable, we recommend @underdog_mlb for any breaking news.

Last updated: 6:22 pm ET – 5/17/24- updated

Update Notes: 

The projections table includes FanDuel and DraftKings hitter projections and a rating for each player in our custom HR model (Scale: 5-10 Average; 10-20 Good; 20-25 Very Good; 25+ Great). The “Status” column indicates whether a lineup is the projected (“P”) version or if it is the confirmed (“C”) game lineup for each team.
