The 7/2 Daily Fantasy Round-Up

Welcome to the Daily Fantasy Round-Up. First I’d like to start off by thanking the Rotogrinders Foreign Press for nominating me for Blogger of the Month. I would like to not thank Billsfan77 for being much more prolific than I at blogging. I sincerely appreciate the support. As I mentioned yesterday, back to blogging, less real work, and BOOM 172% ROI yesterday. (We won’t discuss what the stakes were, or the very small sample size). I have also moved most of my fantasy play over to DraftDay for the time being for a few reasons. One, I like their quick response to industry changes. Second, I like their VIP program. Third, I like their roster set-up. Fourth, chicks dig DD

On to last night’s action!

The Strong Arms
Jose Fernandez and Matt Moore. Both of these guys mowed down the competition last night with 61 and 53 DDPs (Self High-five!). Luckily I had rostered both of them last night. Is Matt Moore’s performance last night a good sign for David Price coming off the DL? Don’t bet on it. The Astros are like a tricky little mongoose. They look all soft and cuddly, then once you trust them, they kill a FREAKING cobra! I don’t trust anything that can kill a cobra, and I don’t trust David Price tonight.

The Big Woodies
Defying all L/L match-up issues and collectively going all MIND=BLOWN on the DFS world, Robinson Cano went DOUBLEDONG last night off the Twins and scoring 89 DDPs .

I heard a certain Al Smizzle mention the name of Ryan Roberts on Grinders Live, but with my top of the Rays stack (which still came through swimmingly), I didn’t want to break up my stack. Roberts hulked up and lambasted the Astros for 73 DDPs including the always fun DOUBLEDONG.

Hindsight is 20/20
If you missed out on the above guys you were probably pretty bummed. Roberts was the only play that was way under the radar. He was under 5% owned on DD. Bet we all wish we had him.
