MLB DFS Multi Entry Strategy: Monday, May 20th
MLB DFS tournament play is unlike that of any other sport. Predicting outcomes with precision is difficult, and player variance is near its peak. There are special considerations when constructing lineups in order for you to find success in the long term. Each weekday, our DFS analysts will examine a specific tournament format and help you understand the application of strategy, via concepts such as pitcher pairings, roster construction, stacking, leverage, ownership, variance, and more.

Figuring out how to treat Patrick Corbin is Monday’s most difficult task when determining tournament allocations. Corbin is far and away the night’s top pitcher in terms of raw projection but what will his ownership be? Current ownership projections have Corbin as the highest owned pitcher across the industry with projected ownership at 30% on DraftKings and 19% on FanDuel. If you think those ownership projections for Corbin hold true then Corbin makes for a fine play in all tournament formats. However, if you think Corbin is likelier to approach 50% on DraftKings and 30+% on FanDuel then it makes sense to short him in multi-entry tournaments. My current read is that ownership projections are a bit light on Corbin which makes me lean towards shorting Corbin (think 10-15% exposure) in multi-entry tournaments.
