    What do you like about Kelly? Kelly’s been trending down big time other than his last start, which was at home where he’s been significantly better. On the flip side the Mets offense seems to be trending up overall. Really just looking for a good reason to play him as the cheaper options today are lacking.

    I’m still pretty traumatized from the Steelers game last night and may not be thinking clearly but I think Folty is the SP2 tonight. I’m more on the Cubs side but if Bryant is out Quantrill could be in play depending on what the lineup looks like.

    Eesh…not a ton…I know he has upside and I need a cheap guy.

    Mets are middle of the road versus righties. The ballpark has a pitchers lean. He just dominated his last start, and over his last 5 or 6 starts, he seems to be serviceable against mediocre to poor offenses, while getting hit by better ones. I know Baltimore and Miami got to him a while back, yet those teams do that occasionally.

    And although he’ll be facing a different and stronger lineup he did dominate the Mets once before. Now that I look at it, he’ll be facing a lot more lefties…I don’t know…talking myself off him.

    That’s why I gave the shoulder shruggy guy after I mentioned his name 🤷‍♂️

    Edit…maybe trevor williams is a better play, or folty if I can get there. Honestly pretty much checked out of mlb, just throwing quarters now to hit the Ironman. I kinda felt bad for the thread, so I figured I’d post something. Now I’ll do 2 lineups, I’ll still roll Kelly in 1, just to be contrarian, and maybe he’s got a good read on the mets 🤷‍♂️😉

    It is indeed a sad board at this point. Understand having checked out. I’m close. I looked through things this morning like I always would to prep for the slate, but I’m questioning if I even want to play. On a night like tonight where there’s big NFL contests the only people playing MLB will be the die-hards and sharks. All of which are as sharp or sharper than I. Not sure I want to mess with that when I’m not feeling overly locked in or motivated about it. Plus my habit of going where the money is (250K to 1st NFL contest vs. a 50K to 1st MLB contest) and I’m not sure it makes much sense to spend too much time with MLB this afternoon and evening.

    Any reason Nico Hoerner is highest projected ppd play batting 8th for the cubs ?

  • mr_papageorgio

    I know I will regret this but I love Nimmo tonight. Wish he was batting higher in the order but I think he’s healthy and if that’s true he’s way too cheap.

    He’s a highly regarded prospect, nearly min price, fits at a good punt position, and the Cubs should be able to score some runs tonight.

    Yeah idk what’s up with that lol he’s still a great play tonight.

  • mr_papageorgio

    Looks like I might be the only one playing today but I’m chilling in the $555 with DeGrom/Folty with Bregman, Yordan, (shout out to Cheese for calling out Yordan during crunch time today – good call!) and Grisham as my only hitters going right now and Cubs 4-6 with Puig and Urias left. This could get interesting.

    I’m playing. Have some line ups out there, but they currently all suck. I don’t remember why I played zero Astros, but I did. Probably just rushed to make 10 line ups and screwed myself. I’m heavy with Brewers, disappointing so far, Mets, same, and Giants.

    Astros going scorched earth

    I like the Giants tonight. Didn’t play any but Williams isn’t very good and neither is the pen so I think they could score a bunch and maybe even hit a few HRs with the strong wind.

    That’s Dylan Bundy territory there. He was due for regression for awhile so I guess he was just saving it all for this start.

  • mr_papageorgio

    If the Marlins can somehow chase Lyles here I would be forever grateful. I would even consider becoming a fan since it looks like they could use some.

    They’re at 6 HR’s already? In the 2nd?

    They are trying to outscore the Texans I think.

    Yeah nuts…I didn’t get a full stack…yet I got bregman/Diaz in one…and Bregman/Brantley/toro in the other.

    Unfortunately no Alvarez…I have a brewers stack in that lineup also and went Yelich over Alvarez 🤢🤮🤮🤮

    Haha 🍻

  • jayzee666

    about 30 10 cent LUs. About 5% have a few of the Astros HRs. Of course I have about 90% Springer (I profusely and embarrasingly apologize to every one that he has ever met) and most the remainng non HR Astros. I NEVER expect to cash and would be shocked if one of those LUs even breaks even, just close to the Achievement for each LU over 100 Pts. I wish they would ban DFS so I can’t do anymore harm!!

    REAPER is the TOM BRADY of DFS!!

  • mr_papageorgio

    The As are emptying the bench already. I’m afraid the Stros will be doing the same soon. I’d love one more Yordan dong first please.

    Edit: Yep, Bregman pinch ran for. Weak.

    I’m only playing small yet still annoying as I had bregman and Thames (pinch hit for by Braun in the 6th with the bases loaded) in both lineups.

    At least Bregman got 20 points first but yeah players leaving early is easily the most frustrating part of DFS for me in any sport.

    at 140 with 5 hitters left who are just starting and I’m 30 points out of first. This is probably the most legit sweat I’ve ever had to win something big. My Cubs are low owned so if I got them right I should be in pretty good shape. Let’s do this!
