Million Dollar Musings: Opening Day
Is your lineup Premium Approved? In this space, either CheeseIsGood or STLCardinals84 will break down the slate from top-to-bottom like no one else in the industry can – exploring the matchups from every angle, steering you toward the best plays on the day, and helping you become a better and more complete DFS player as you continually expose yourself to the “process” and the “why,” rather than just looking at the “what.” Have a boat? We’ll teach you how to fish.
We made it! The long off-season is over and baseball is back. If you are new to the Musings this year, welcome. To those of you who have been with me in the past, thanks for joining me for another season.
I’m going to dive head first into the analysis, so if you have any questions about how to use this or what some of these stats mean, please feel free to ask any questions in the comment section. You can also take a look at this primer article for an overview of what to expect this season, and it will also explain a lot of the terminology that I use. Early in the season, all we have to go on are past numbers, so I’ll be looking at 2018 stats. As the season progresses, I’ll start bringing in the current season numbers.
While I’ll be talking through who I like and plan to play on different sites, the purpose of the Musings is not to give you picks. We have lots of tools available on the site if you need specific help to build a lineup that can give you a starting point for your rosters. Consensus Value Rankings, LineupHQ Expert Filters and the Expert Survey all have recommended plays for the days slate. Here, I’m interested in helping you become a better player and understanding how to look at a slate and break it down. This is more about the research and the process. Through reading this article all season, you’ll learn how I arrive at my decisions, what stats I look at each day and different ways that I think about lineup construction in various types of contests.
