Saturday, April 20th

Good Day Grinders! I am here to help you navigate a pretty interesting 4-game Playoff slate today. Ironically we are still dealing with a few injuries which will influence our decision making and our approach. My goal today is going to be to prioritize players into tiers. Here will be our legend for this 1) Must Plays-Guys that have the highest likelihood for success. 2) Opportunistic Plays- Guys that because of injury will have to take on more of a role or increased minutes. 3) The Middle of the pack- Guys that on any other slate may garner some ownership, but due to the size of the slate and pricing may become unpopular. 4) Bottom of the Barrel- Guys that are cheap that will help with lineup construction and should get some minutes too. Ok, now that we have that out of the way, let’s dive in!
