Last night was my first night ever playing MLB DFS. I have played in Dynasty/season long leagues for over 15 years, so I have a general Idea what to look for when building those types of teams.
I made 3 lineups total and spread them across multiple contest types on Fanduel.
GPP Lineup 1: Total score 25.25
I used Alvarez at SP & went with a 4 stack of both Brewers & Dodgers (Lucroy, Lind, Gennett, Uribe, Rollins, Gomez, Puig, Pederson) Obviously these stacks didnt work out too well except for Rollins.
GPP Lineup 2: Total score 30.83
I used Kluber at SP & went with a 3×3×2 stack strategy of Brewers/Yankees/Tigers (mcCann, Lind, Gennett, Ramierez, Iglesias, Beltran, Gardner, Davis) This was my favorite lineup after building it
Cash Game Lineup: Total score 32
I used Kershaw & did a 3 stack of Brewers and filled in the rest with what I could afford based on matchups (Ruiz, Lind, Gennett, Ramirez, Crawford, Pagan, Revere, Eaton)
Obviously my Brewers stacks killed my lineups but I just wanted some input from experienced MLB DFSers. Was I on the right track? Are my lineup building methods on point? What can I improve on if I am missing out on something?
Thanks for any advice, this community rocks!
