    Over 10%, but less than 20%. I’d guess closer to 20%. 15-18%?

    It’s an interesting dynamic. I think people might have been off of them a little after they didn’t put up numbers yesterday (which is hilarious because they’ve been on fire)… but then will get back to that pricing and find themselves with good amounts. Not really sure how ownership will spread out given the high prices of texas and the low prices here. Any thoughts?

    Anyone like the astros even though they are short handed? Pretty cheap on FD.

    Reddick batting first is a lock for me.

    Updated…it looks like this will be a bullpen game for the White Sox so I radically shuffled my Houston stack:

    I kinda like them-especially when they have a crappy pitcher throwing at them. Then again, they could do an Indians number where they had a guy pitching at them with an 8.00+ERA and they still couldn’t hit the ball, lol!

  • PhoFever

    If you want chalky, how about Caratini batting cleanup for min. price on Yahoo. Gonna be about 69.8% owned.

  • dsoglin33

    Alberto in the 1 hole at 2900 on DKs will get some attention, too.

    Yeah, I bet he’s pretty highly owned. Trying to decide between him and Flowers or maybe even Kiner-Falefa.

    Wow! I had him locked into my 4 lineups and now he comes up 1st in the lineup. Gonna be super chalk now.

    Considering the popularity that Texas, NYY, Houston and Seattle will carry and their prices and quality of the 8K arms on DK it would seem natural to jump on these Twins bats as a stacking partner at their prices.

    20+ MPH winds blowing in for TEX/SEA… Yikes

    Yeah. My next level past that has been how under owned Atlanta was going to be in a good spot… but then I’ve seen a few people in the industry mention the same thing, which leads to normal levels of ownership. How do you feel there?

  • biga0787

    I have been on Texas all day. I just have a feeling they underwhelm. Leake is going to give up some runs but I don’t think it’s the 10 everyone thinks it is. Single lineup I think you fade and hope for the best.

    LAA, WAS, ATL have been my 3 favorite stacks all day and that hasn’t changed. ATL has crushed LHP all year. Suarez gave up crazy hard contact to RHB’s last year, but was OK as far as his other numbers. He couldn’t make the team out of spring training and has been getting lit up at AAA. I’m all about ATL.

    I like HOU/TEX/SEA/MIN/NYY too, like everyone else, but those other 3 I think are great, slate breaking type spots that are probably going to be overlooked more than they should be. Probably even more so now that half of MIN’s line up is under 4K.

    So that would place us on the same page. ATL and WAS are my dominant stacks so far. I like but don’t love the angels, but I get it (I just kinda think Odorizzi is good at damage control, which is not exactly rational or tangible, but I don’t love stacking against him). Mixing the rest in and seeing what happens.

    Wow. Presuming Acuna bats 1st, I think this is will be the 1st time I’ve been able to roster 5 batters hitting first on DK.

    Kind of Falafel, Carrot-ini and Flowers. It’s a good day for catchers whose names make easy food and botanical puns.

    I talked myself out of Bellinger and Verdugo yesterday due to the “wind” argument. Not sure I want to tinker at this point.
