Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Top plays for Monday's DraftKings, FanDuel MLB DFS contests

As always, especially this time of year, you need to pay very close attention to the weather. We've had a number of postponements recently due to both the cold and precipitation. Teams aren't afraid of delaying games due to the weather, and the last thing you want to do is get caught with players in your daily fantasy baseball lineup who are in danger of having their games postponed. If you notice some shaky weather conditions, you may want to avoid them completely in cash games. If you want to take the risk and use some contrarian plays in GPP tournaments to get a leg up on the ownership projections, then sure, but understand that you could get saddled with a zero.
