    So do we take royals against Lyles or Red Sox against a lefty?

    Why not some of both? I’ll have J.D. for sure w/ some Merrifield and maybe Sal Perez at catcher.

  • monarch

    Blue Jays BP game? Why isn’t the Yankees run total higher? Might stack the bottom of the order.

    Domingo German has been effective in ST but was leaky against lefties, Cavan Biggio, Tellez with the wind blowing out to right. Might throw Vlad in there with a low K rate and handles the curve nicely.

    Braves/Phillies game not interesting to me but Acuna/Hoskins look good as one offs and Ian Anderson will be a place to go to.

    I guess Royals/Rangers will be the place to go for the park and weather.

    I’m not sure the Red Sox are even in my top 5 today. Red Sox offense continues to be overrated and I don’t think this Zimmermann guys is a gas can or anything, at all.

    Got Royals, Cards, Cubs, Yanks ahead of them for sure. Then maybe Reds. Cleveland is right here on the edge too.

  • thedkexperience

    I think I’m backing Singer but I don’t trust any of these guys today either because they suck or because I don’t think the managers are letting many of them go more than 5 innings.

  • biga0787

    Ian Anderson? Seems like a lot on fd against Philadelphia

    For a 8 game slate, do you think it’s big enough to need to look for 1 offs to play or 2 man stacks? Right now I am just mixing and matching 4-4 on fd and 5-3 on dk and see what fits. But I am assuming 1 offs and 2 mans can help save salary/ be unique/ create a higher floor.

    I have the stacks ranked similarly…. so many value bats in good spots and no arms to pay for

    So far for me
    SP Mix/match Richards Davies Singer Pineda German
    Stacks Royals Cards Reds RedSox Yankees Indians
    One offs Kike Isbel JD Perez Franmil Renfroe Moose Bruce Mullins

    You can do whatever you want. Full on 4×4 and 5×3 stacking can still win, but mini-stacks and 1-offs and winning more and more.

    Only 4 slate sample, but

    Thursday ( 9 games ) DK winning line up – 2 Royals, 1 Ranger, 3 Dodgers, 2 Diamondbacks

    Friday ( 6 games ) DK winning line up – 5 Astros, 2 Dodgers, 1 White Sox

    Saturday Early ( 5 games ) DK winning line up – 5 Royals, 2 Cubs, 1 Yankee

    Saturday Main ( 5 games ) DK winning line up – 3 Padres, 2 Dodgers, 1 White Sox, 1 Diamondback, 1 Mariner

    I like how the Rangers countered Singers 11 percent walk rate to LHB with seven lefties, many well over a double digit walk rate.

    No Eflin? Don’t think Anderson is worth it? I think people might be underrating him. Was great last year, and dominant in spring.

    I’m really conflicted on Davies. I know it’s the Pirates, but the K-upside is limited and had one good season, in a short season and he’s priced up like he’s really good.

    Ok good to know. I’ll probably try some 1 offs or 2 man stack today. Thanks

    I am not done
    May play some with those two… I rarely play pitchers in PHI and CIN

    Most pitchers are overpriced today, not just Davies
    I agree upside is limited, but he usually has a decent floor and consistency
    I think today, unless we get an outlier, pitchers won’t win it but can lose it

    Makes sense, Davies price isn’t too bad on DK. I was thinking on FD where he is 3rd most expensive. DK he’s priced more appropriately compared to the other arms.

    Braves are a good leverage stack

  • axman15

    Minimal time for me on this slate = Royals + Red Sox + most expensive pitchers I can still fit. Just going to have to eat the chalk today.

    c mart resurrection day

  • biga0787

    Let’s hope!!

  • homers1226

    5 and 2/3rds would be max i i think

    which should be plenty on this slate

  • am03wins

    Trey Mancini at $2,000 on DK seems like an easy choice.

  • homers1226

    freddy galvis for 2600 pretty cheap too
