    FANDUEL VALUE (5/7): Kieboom is not the best option on FanDuel with a projected 7.3 FD pts (#24 among shortstops). He is the #18 highest priced shortstop ($3000). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $2.5K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). There are 3 other options at $3000 (Brandon Crawford, Andrelton Simmons, Corey Seager) and Kieboom is ranked #4 among the 4.

He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Freddy Galvis (4.4 FP), Yairo Munoz (3.5 FP), and Andrew Velazquez (2.8 FP).

    Kieboom is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.
