MLB DFS Tournament Strategy: Wednesday, April 24th
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.

Fantasy projections and ownership projections agree – Justin Verlander (36% DK) is Wednesday’s clear cut SP1. Verlander has posted back-to-back 30DK/50FD point fantasy performances and the Astros are Wednesday’s night’s biggest favorites (-235). Per Derek Carty’s projection system, THE BAT, Verlander has both the highest floor (10th percentile projection) and ceiling (90th percentile projection) on the slate. Verlander will be chalky but I am fine eating that chalk in tournaments.
