Million Dollar Musings: Wednesday, June 26th

Is your lineup Premium Approved? In this space, CheeseIsGood, STLCardinals84, or fathalpert 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.

Wednesday, June 26th

Happy Wednesday! We’ve got an early start today with a six-game slate starting at 1:05ET on DK/FDRFT, which is split into two separate early slates on FD. On Yahoo, those early games are a part of their bigger all-day contest.

It is tough to break down different slates for different sites, so I am going to focus on the six early games on DK/FDRFT, and then will note how those options relate to the FD pricing in the Cliff Notes. I will also be on Crunch Time for the early slate at 12:30pm ET if you have questions on it. Let’s jump right it here, and then I’ll be back a bit later with a look at the nine-game main slate.
