Cheat Sheet and Projections

We've reviewed every player from every team to help you find the best selections on Wednesday's slate.

Selection Player Salary Proj. Pts Pts/$1K
Stud Ronel Blanco (HOU, P) $16,320 14.8 0.9
Value Andrew Thorpe (CWS, P) $5,000 13.5 2.7
Fade Heliot Ramos (SF, OF) $9,360 2.3 0.2
Cheapie Jhonathan Díaz (SEA, P) $5,000 11.9 2.4

According to Fantasy Insider's DFS model, our "stud" is the highest projected scorer across the slate, while "value" picks provide the most "bang for your buck," meaning they are expected to perform well relative to their salary.

Conversely, a "fade" is a player considered to offer lower value for money, based on their expected score relative to their salary. For those needing to stay under the salary cap, "cheapie" options highlight the best value players at lower price points not already mentioned.

In fantasy sports, understanding value—assessing a player's potential output against their salary—is crucial, as players scoring high relative to their cost are key in crafting the optimal line-up.

The "Pts/$1K" metric shows the predicted points for every $1,000 of a player's salary. A higher number indicates better value, making it easier to spot players who could outperform their cost.

Conclusion

When building your MLB Late Wednesday teams, consider starting with a value player like Andrew Thorpe. To secure one of the highest projected scorers, Ronel Blanco is a strong option. If you're seeking budget-friendly choices to free up salary cap for more studs, take a look at our cheapie options, including Jhonathan Díaz.

On the other hand, according to our model, Heliot Ramos is one of the lowest value options on the slate, suggesting you might want to limit exposure to him if putting together multiple line-ups.
