CheeseIsGood's Million Dollar Musings: Wednesday, April 21st

Happy Wednesday! We’ve got another strange schedule today, with a 5-game mid-afternoon slate at 3:10pm ET and then an earlier than usual main slate starting at 6:10pm ET. I’m going to give you a Cliff Notes look at the early slate, and then I will wrap up my final thoughts on that early slate on the first Crunchtime of the day at 2:30pm ET. I’ll be back sometime this afternoon with some thoughts on the 6:10 slate.

Early Slate Overview

Early Pitching Cliff Notes

Tier One, The Lone Ace

Max Scherzer vs St. Louis

Tier Two

Kenta Maeda at Oakland
Frankie Montas vs Minnesota

Tier Three

Jose Quintana vs Texas

Max Scherzer is in a tier of his own. There is no reason not to play him on DK where you can get a cheaper SP2 to make the salaries work. It’s trickier on FD at $11,000 where you have to choose between Scherzer and the high-end Coors Field bats, but I would still start with Scherzer in most lineups.
