    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!

    As the saying goes, Rome was not built in a day. I had the opposite day yesterday (a very good one) but I know variance is going to happen. Keep going with your processes, doing your work, and evaluate after you have a larger sample size whether what you are doing is right or wrong.

    just my thoughts but if you’re going to multi enter you might think about using different stacks so you’re not all in on one but that’s easy to say when it doesn’t work out. Obviously if you hit on that stack all lineups cash but just a thought.

    I did do that in essence with the other teams I used, but the common denominator was the Brewers. The value of the players I used combined with the matchup was too much to pass up. I do see where you are coming from though, thanks!

    Another newbie question – I understand stacking in GPPs but is it a good strategy for cash games as well?

    A second question because of high variance with hitters how many cash game lineups do you create on average?

    Also thank you to the grinders who have taken time to answer questions for all of us newbies.

    I’m a MLB DFS newbie but have put some time/thought into it and researched it probably as much as one can. I created one cash game lineup for each site yesterday. One did really well (swept), one crashed (lost all but one entry).

    Stacking is a no-go in cash games. If that stack crashes, so does your cash game lineup.

    ^^^ Lesson learned, although I actually managed to cash my 1 double up with a 3 stack of Brewers.
