    I dont think Miley and lambert will disappoint. Enjoy

  • mciama2000

    Anyone know what the next milestone numbers/crowns are after:

    Century Mark – 150 – 380 crowns
    Big Fly – 600 hrs – 550 crowns

    I’m about 80% complete on these 2, but debating whether to decrease/increase lineups depending on if the next tier is achievable.

    Going to Mets/Yankees tonight so I won’t be able to play much DFS at all.

    Last night was rough. Ji-Man Choi at first. The batters around him go off, he does nothing. JD Martinez in the OF. The batters around him go off, he does nothing. Stack Astros 1-4 and all the homers come from the #5 hitter. And of course the capper, Lopez gets rained out when there was supposed to be no risk of a PPD. Meanwhile, the games which supposedly were riskier all played.

    Amazingly, I beat more people than I lost to in the Fencebuster, but that didn’t help. Finished 36th with 118.75. https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/73996416?uc=1539832777

    this was the lineup I would’ve used instead of Lopez (IOW, had I known Lopez was at risk of being PPD)

    PCharlie MortonSP 38.75
    PJoe MusgroveSPvs CHC10.410.695900 14.15
    CJeff Mathis9vs LAA3.22.982000 0
    1BJi-Man Choi4vs BAL6.910.603600 3
    2BJose Altuve2@ COL7.714.964200 25
    3BNolan Arenado4vs HOU10.019.505400 16
    SSTrevor Story2vs HOU10.816.914500 8
    OFMookie Betts1@ TOR9.714.824700 21
    OFJ.D. Martinez4@ TOR9.615.164600 3
    OFMichael Brantley 13

    141.9, would’ve been good for 12th ($5,000).

  • rourke441

    strasburg is 10-0 with a 1.99 era vs marlins

  • superjon

    Bats:
    ATL
    CLE
    HOU
    LAA
    LOS
    OAK
    STL
    TOR

    Pitching:

    Sale is going to be the chalk, but I’m worried because he can struggle against Toronto. If I don’t play Sale, I’ll definitely have a mini Toronto stack. There are some good value bats from the Cardinals that makes it easier to play Sale.

    If I don’t play Sale, maybe John Means or take a flier on Detweiler. Detroit is struggling and he’s only 6k on FD. Maybe he goes 4-5 innings and gets 3 to 4 K’s with the win. I’d be happy with that output, and it lets me pay up for the expensive bats.

  • PhoFever

    Yahoo players: Duffy? Wainwright? Both are on my radar for value plays with Coors stacks.

    Also gonna stack against Vargas and Chacin, hell or high water.

  • monarch

    Considering Royal Pain took down the GPP last night with a 0 from Lopez…I’ll take my chances with Pruitt for 4k.

  • tristanwolf

    jose abreu bobblehead day if anyone is playing showdown. (moves him to my captain spot).

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Man, still need a Det home run in that DK achievement. Figured this Showdown and pitching matchup may be the best chance to get out that out of the way…not working out at the moment…oh well…

  • casper

    pruitt is no longer listed as the PLR on my draftkings app anymore?

  • monarch

    I know Means is good and its hard to pass up on Altuve/Bregman but the Rays called up a lefty masher batting 6th today Mike Brosseau for 2700.

    Salary doesn’t matter much in MLB. He’s going to have to come close to the output of those other guys. If you think he will or at least has a good chance then use him.

    Exception not the rule. 2.5x my buy ins in GPP yesterday and had Lopez in 5 of 8 lineups. Yet only cashed 2 Lopez lineups.

    Not saying Pruitt isn’t a good play if he is the bulk reliever. Just saying generally good pitching helps.

    I need Detroit also, along with Minnesota of all teams lol. I think Castellanos has a good shot tonight. Rolling him in a few.

    I wouldn’t go that far.

    He’s a play, someone I’m considering that you or others may have not an hour ago.

    Seems like a great night to play Gary. Vargas is well past due for a date with the regression reaper.

    Actually, you did call my attention to him. And I might throw him in 1 or 2 cause he can, don’t know if he will, hit a homer. Yet what I said is true, unless your simply punting a weak position like catcher to fit a big stack, salary doesn’t matter. If I use this guy Brosseau and other guys mash and he goes 1 for 3 with a single I’m sunk, as 2b/3b is strong tonight.

    He profiles very strongly tonight on PlateIQ vs Vargas

    Ryne Stanek is listed as “Conventional” SP, but per TB Mgr, will be usual 1 or 2 innings.

    Pruitt just was called up yesterday & I see no news to the contrary of him being the PLR other than the dK app
