    Why is Ivan Nova priced up by 2k on DK for a road matchup vs the Twins?

    2 in the 20’s, 1 in the 30’s and a 19.2 in 4 of last 5 starts. 29.8 vs Houston was impressive, but at home.
    But I agree with you, tonight he should be no more than that game, which was $5700.

    Look at his last 5 starts. I’m not playing him, but you can’t argue these numbers. There’s a few guys priced up. I don’t know why DK occasionally does this. Seems like it’s on Mondays a lot. They price up all the pitchers a bit. Marco and Miley, have on paper very good match ups, but neither are worth near their tag either. I understand pricing based on what’s available, as in if theirs no aces available then pricing up the next best options, but today seems extreme. Anways.. Nova’s last 5 games with DK pt. totals.

    Edwin Jackson smash spot

    Mr Jackson has a bi-polar DFS profile.
    the possible outcomes are similar to Ron Artest @ a state dinner.

  • telestraightshooter

    Houston current money Line is -430

    This series could see a -500
    That has not happened in living memory

    Your best Dennis Green was so good, that it double-posted. :D

    I am only playing Yahoo today, and pitching pricing is a little bit different from DK. I think the pitcher pricing on yahoo was pretty strong for today, it should cause some spread out ownership.

    I thought the same thing about Marco and Miley…probably gonna play Ross and maybe even Davies

  • hautalak

    @Petergunz82 said...

    probably gonna play Ross

    and McKay for me… Nats bats. Took me 2 secs to come up with that so hopefully it works! I can’t pay crack prices for those pitchers lol

  • monarch

    Ross is good. I think I like McKay and Gibson and maybe I’ll stack against Ross if he is going to have ownership.

    On second thought, I dont think I’ll pick on Ross…

  • mr_papageorgio

    Tonight should be Matt Carpenter double dong night right? Astros and Twins are the obvious stacks but I think the Pirates, Rangers, Reds, and either side of KC/BAL could be sneaky and go off. Not sure where I’m going yet tonight but those are my initial thoughts for bats.

  • realphipps

    Home Gibson is extreme. Really good or really bad.

    He’s got an incredibly good bvp but he’s also hitting more like Pete Kozma this year.. I’m not going there when there are several great options at 3b.

  • ASitar

    I’m leaning Gibson/Gallen w an Orioles stack

  • athairuammit11

    Anybody like the Royals stack? and/or Angels?

    Who knows what carpenter will do, yet he’s failed in like every BVP matchup all season. He had great bvp versus Alex wood (and splits, being that wood is reverse splits and carpenter has been reverse this year as well) and was like the only cardinal not to do sh@t.

    Maybe I’ll one off him or something, or maybe not.

    Royals are a tough one.

    Its sweltering in the mid atlantic today and Means has been pitching above his talent for much of the season until his last start but…

    The Royals do not profile well at all vs his changeup he throws 35 percent of the time to RHB (7 today). Only Cheslor Cuthbert handles that well and he has been putrid recently.

    I dont think they have enough to consider a full stack for me. Maybe just Jorge Soler because he is likely to lift the ball a few times tonight.

  • monarch

    Taking a deeper look at that Royals game and I want to stack Orioles vs Jorge Lopez pen and Sam Holbrook plus the excellent hitting weather

    Yep, I’m going Manicni/Villar/Nunez

  • ASitar

    Trying to figure out if DJ Stewart is a good play batting 7th for $3,100. What’s he gotta hit to hit value, 10 DK points?

  • mr_papageorgio

    Demeritte batting 2nd for $3300 is tempting. Miley hasn’t been bad but he’s still Wade Miley and could easily blow up.

    I was looking at him too. He has HR and SB upside so if you need a cheap OF I think he’s worthy of consideration.
