MLB DFS Tournament Strategy: Tuesday, April 16th
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.

This article will have a focus on single entry and 3-max tournaments. These formats are more partial to optimal builds with some basic pivots, compared to mass multi entry (MME) tournaments where one has to cast a much wider net and consider the entire slate. Any and all feedback, both good and bad, is welcome!
My initial review of the slate from a pitching perspective is that the optimal build is going to include one of Tyler Glasnow or Stephen Strasburg as the guy to pay up for. That is the sound cash game strategy, which will undoubtedly inflate the ownership of these two guys in single entry and 3-max tournaments.
