    Boyd/Lopez single bullet in the DK &17.76? Kinda liking Woodruff but I like Votto. Twins and Brewers?

    Main slate is tough…no real prime hitting/pitching spots. Brewers have upside and have done well against Castillo, so I’ll have some exposure, yet Castillo is a good pitcher, so he could shut them down as well.

    I like the twins also yet the ballpark is blah. I’ll still have some twins.

    And may I recommend a Tigers stacks as well, especially if Lopez is going to be highly owned. I like Lopez too, yet that could go either way.

    I’m guessing Brosseau will be back in the Rays lineup for 2200. Did well off a better lefty yesterday, so maybe he can do it again 🤷‍♂️

    Good luck today all 😎🍻

    I was up at 7:30 AM and then tried to go back to sleep. I didn’t leave enough time for MLB lineups and missed all the DK overlay with the unusual 11 AM start time (well, DC does it every year, but it’s one of the few teams each season a game begins before noon Eastern)

    Khris Davis too cheap and due? DK $3,600

    why is DET (Boyd) a dog vs CWS (Lopez)?

  • lotusbomb

    I like both teams. Extra innings last night and they’re bullpens are already bad. less opportunity for the white Sox because of Boyd though.

    I’m a little biased though. Goodrum and abreu helped me out a lot last night

  • Giez

    Lyles did well vs Cubs before. Not sure I would go lower.

  • Orty1370

    Totally happy to pass on CLE/KC game on the early FanDuel slate. It reeks of disappointment and frustration.

    I may not have the definitive answer here, but Boyd’s recent underlying numbers suggest regression. Of all pitchers on this slate, Boyd has given up the largest average distance to batted balls (247 feet), the second highest average exit velocity (95 mph), the highest fly ball percentage (55%), and the second highest hard hit percentage (50%).

    I have 10% Boyd because of the strikeout potential, but I have some White Sox stacks in play as well.

    Strikes out the side? Damn, hate to see him have positive regression or whatever that technical baseball term it!!

    Anyway, REAPER in Berzerker mode now. That is someone that will never have Regression!!

  • Messiah717

    Woodruff get your act together now.

  • wpatrigo

    Castillo has pretty low ownership for the upside he affords on this weaker slate

    Hey, you’ve got to hit the ball to put it in the air. The game is still early. You might get to Chicago in time.

    I have, Stacked the Sox! The REAPER is everywhere!
    Went with the old “Boyd probably chalk, stack against him, low ownership, contrarion” theory. Unfortunately the REAPER don’t play that crap!!

    Looking for the next players due for regression and playing them!

    Maybe. Lynn is a bit of an enigma this year. I don’t trust him enough at his price to use him, but I still don’t stack against him.

    Is Stroman officially starting yet? That’s a pretty big piece of news, because if it’s a bullpen day for the Jays then Boston might be the top stack, but if Stroman pitches then for me Sox are off the table, and Stroman may even be in play. He’s handled the Sox pretty well his entire career, including twice this year. It’s just a matter of if he’s pitching coming off any kind of injury the all together risk just might not be worth it.

    Stroman just got scratched

    Derek Law will open ahead of Thomas Pannone for the Blue Jays on Thursday
