A new week and fresh set of lineups for FanDuel, DraftKings and FantasyAces. Stephen cashed with his single lineup approach in both a 50/50 and GPP on Wednesday and Friday last week. I have cashed with my Cash game lineup on DraftKings 11 out of the last 15 days and Matt has cashed with three of his last eight GPP lineups including a top 400 out of 70,000 entries finish two weeks ago. Let see if we can pull in some big wins this week!
Here is a list of the “rules” we are following when constructing lineups:
- We will make two separate lineups for each site (FanDuel and DraftKings), one for Cash games and one for GPP tournaments.
- For Cash games, we will build the core of our lineup from the Consensus list using any player listed regardless of what tier they are in and will be allowed to choose 1 player that is not on the Consensus list that we consider to be a good play.
- For GPP games, we are allowed to choose up to add 2-3 players that are not on the Consensus list to help complete a hitter stack or we consider to be a good play.
- We can modify any lineup as we see fit for any late-breaking lineup news that opens up good options even if they are not on the Consensus list.
As always be sure to check for late-breaking news regarding weather and lineups.
Entrant – Matt – FanDuel
Cash Game Lineup
Cash Narrative – Typically, I do not go out of my way to roster the top pitcher on the board. Tonight was different. Some bargain basement ballers for hitters since I paid up for Kershaw. No off the board plays for today.
GPP Narrative – Cueto offers nice upside and allows for a little more flexibility salary wise than Kershaw. I’ll play the Marlins stack of Realmuto, Stanton and Hechavarria. Off the board with two Cardinals in Moss and Wong. Though Lackey dominated them last time out, I think the two lefties can provide some pop tonight.
Entrant – Brad- DraftKings
Cash Game Lineup
Cash Narrative – Paying up for two of the top pitchers including Kershaw since there were a lot of good value hitters on the Consensus list tonight.
GPP Narrative – Going “all in” on the Dodgers and Rays tonight with both a stack of hitters from each team and their starting pitchers. Off the board plays include Moore, Casali, Gonzalez and Souza.
Entrant – Stephen- FantasyAces
Lineup Narrative – I won’t normally go off the board, but it’s been a lot of fun trying out different combos for tonight. I like the Rays, Phillies and Dodger stacks tonight while mixing in a Ranger or Angel or two. I’ve been playing one lineup both for cash and GPP play, and last week we hit twice. Tonight I am going off the board twice (like the other guys do for GPPs) so I can load up on those three teams while maximizing the number of ABs my players receive. Honestly, I think Kershaw and Cueto is the only way to go tonight for cash games, and whomever you throw in as bats should do well with your anchored pitching. Off the board I am taking Mahtook and Cesar Hernandez. Both are hitting in the two-hole today and should see plenty of opportunities. Neither might be huge boppers but I feel are better plays than Galvis and Motter, both of whom are hitting down in the order, but are on our Expert Consensus. BvP watch: Ryan Howard. Has had some success against Pelfrey, but hasn’t hit a HR against him since 2011, when Pelfrey and Howard were much younger. Good luck all!
