    Just though I would create a thread in case anyone wanted to chat about MLB various DFS topics, keeping them all in one thread while on the All-Star Break.

    I’ll start a daily thread again Thursday for Friday’s games.

    Enjoy the week off!

    Duvall v. Stanton with Stanton edging it out in tonight’s Homerun Derby and an AL win (especially since NL is loaded with slumping Cubbies)

    Pretty sure I’ve had the most productive 2 hours of work in 2016 this morning…

    Exactly. Now I actually have to work for 4 days…

    I did want to take a minute and thank everyone here and speak out for those who don’t use multiple entries in a big tourney. I usually only play one or two GPPs a night with one lineup. Saturday, what I thought would never be possible, became possible when I finished second in the Main MLB Squeeze tourney. I owe it a lot to everyone on this board, but mostly to Eddie freakin Rosario. But seriously, thank you all that contribute to Rotogrinders. And to all the doubters, including myself before Saturday, it is possible.

    All star week was horrible for me last season. But that’s only because I ended the first half and the day before the break on a nice winning streak. So naturally I wanted to keep playing. This last week I got my ass handed to me after having a really nice week before that. So I am actually liking this time off so far but I’m sure by Wednesday I’ll be in full MLB dfs withdrawal. I’ll definitely study Friday’s slate a lot and try to win that 50k on both the big sites.

    I haven’t found time to research and play a lot lately but today at work is already rough with nothing to really look at and play. Going to be a long week.

    I’m planning to analyze the winning team for the past month on DK’s GPPs. I’d like to study things like ownership percentages, % of money allocated to pitchers versus hitters, the role of stacks, and how much money was left on the table. I’m sure there’s so much variance in baseball (as well as each slate being so different) that formulating findings will be difficult, but I’m still interested to dig into the data.

    Hurry up weekend.

    I’m noticing more and more that stacking doesn’t take down many gpp’s. Sometimes, when a team scores like 15+ runs it does. But the majority of the time, even when a team does well, one player from your stack has a 0 or 3. And obviously, unless someone has an unusually high score with low ownership, you need everyone on your team to do well to take down a gpp. I’m noticing most of the top scores have a wide variety of players in good spots that fit the salary structure. I just started playing mlb after NBA and I have always stacked. It made sense to me that if a team goes off, you get the hit and rbi plus the run, etc. I think I’m gonna use the All star break to rethink my strategy. Ps… I’ve had too much free time today.

    I’m actually finding the opposite to be true. I’m still early in my research but for the last 9 days, 7 of the 9 winning lineups had a 4 or 5 man stack. What surprises me is who is included in the winning stack are players you typically leave out. For example, when the Angels went off on 7/2, the winner had Trout, Calhoun, Cron and Perez but that’s only because Cron and Perez accounted for 11 RBIs. On 7/1 when the Mets went off, the winning lineup had Cespedes, Walker, Asdrubal, Nimmo, and Loney (all of whom were under 3% owned – I don’t think I would ever have the guts to roster Loney).

    This is obviously a small sample to draw from but I still think stacks are a viable strategy if you’re hitting on the right players.

    With the free time due to no researching / making teams I actually took on extra tasks at work today. Please hurry back baseball before people get the wrong idea that I am looking for more work

    I needed a little break. NFL and NBA come so much easier for me since I’ve been watching them since I was a kid and played both at a fairly high level. MLB on the other hand is so hard for me to get down. I can’t seem to get a good process down. My best cashes in MLB are the lineups that I put the least amount of research in, which is very discouraging to me. Hopefully I can bounce back.

    Maybe that is what you need to think about… Are you over thinking it?

    I was getting killed this year doing the same strategy that paid off big time last year on DK. Along came the single entry series on FD…. Decided to give it a go. I now just focus on one line up with the single pitcher… And I’m putting in a lot less time, playing more due to it and making some money again.

    Simple can be better. Maybe short lived, but enjoying it more right now

    I agree with the poster above as far as more non stacks taking down tournaments this season. More so on Dk and I’m sure that’s because of the five man stack limit. It’s a lot harder to nail all the right players when you have 3 spots NL and 4 spots AL that you can’t take. Last season you only needed to get 6 out of 8 in the NL right. On fan duel it’s always been harder to nail stacks since the limit is 4 players. That said I think you’re best option is to stack because it’s so much harder to hit on 8 different players from 8 different teams. Yes people do it but somebody has to win and each night and that somebody has the stack of thier life when they take down a big Gpp down.

  • awilson45

    Any opinions on doing a train for a 3 entry max GPP? Do you find that to be more profitable than spreading out 3 different lineups over the course of time? I find myself to be more of a 1 lineup type of guy and the concept of rolling multiple entries of the same lineup is intriguing to me.

    Looks like cueto is back to sucking when he’s pitching to AL teams.
