Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks for July 8, 2015 (FanDuel and DraftKings)

This is a quick and simple guide to help you find players for your daily fantasy baseball teams.

I give you at least 2 Pitchers, 1 player at each infield position, and 2 Outfield options. I list my top pick first and then descending order from there. I also suggest a team to stack, and a "Must Play" player.

Make sure to check lineups and a player's status before inserting them into your lineup. Also, check weather reports to make sure games aren't postponed. This guide is only here to help pick potentially successful players, and is not guaranteeing you any monetary success.
