    Kind of a newbie, not sure if this is a no-brainer (or the correct forum), but I’m guessing people here know.

    I have multiple entries in GPPs where I am near the top on DK. In each lineup, I have Hanley Ramirez ($4,100) going at SS in the Sunday night game. Xander Bogarts ($3,800) is also eligible at SS in the game.

    Should I swap Hanley out for Bogarts in, say, half my lineups to increase the likelihood that I have a unique lineup to win the top prize? As it stands, these entries will both finish in the money, even if that position scores zero.

    Makes sense.

    So, I did that. It became irrelevant, obviously. But it turned out the Bogarts lineups became unique and my only path to victory in each of the GPPs. (I got to see the opposing lineups at tip, and I would have had Hanley against a couple of people who were slightly ahead of me and had Hanley as well.)

    Still wondering if it’s an obvious play or not?

    If I have multiple lineups with a shot to hit it big, I always differentiate them if I have players playing in a later game on DK. Even if I love one play over another.

    I think it’s the smart play, given the variance of the game (e.g. not crazy to move from Trout to Kemp, for instance, in some lineups to enhance your chances of winning big if the only game left is LAA v. SD).

    This issue comes into play a lot in the NFL games with the late Sunday and Monday night games. I’ve pivoted numerous times in those situations.

    I think it is. I couldn’t believe the Sunday before the ASB there were a bunch of players in the top 20 with one player remaining, turned out to be McCutcheon – which was obvious – and none of them swapped him, unless maybe some leveled themselves and swapped him back. I think Marte was only 5% owned. Why play on DK if you’re not going to have a late swap strategy?

    I also wanted to point out that as a Red Sox fan who sees way more Hanley at bats than I ever wanted to watch in a lifetime, he does not try so much of the time. Literally. I find myself always going with Xander over him regardless, though I guess that’s a bias. Anyway, just an aside…
