I have cashed with four straight GPP lineups on DraftKings going for #5 tonight. Stephen also cashed with his GPP lineup on FantasyDraft last night and Matt is back to take over the FanDuel lineups tonight.
Here is a list of the “rules” we are following when constructing lineups:
- We will make two separate lineups for each site (FanDuel and DraftKings), one for Cash games and one for GPP tournaments.
- For Cash games, we will build the core of our lineup from the Consensus list using any player listed regardless of what tier they are in and will be allowed to choose 1 player that is not on the Consensus list that we consider to be a good play.
- For GPP games, we are allowed to choose up to add 2-3 players that are not on the Consensus list to help complete a hitter stack or we consider to be a good play.
- We can modify any lineup as we see fit for any late-breaking lineup news that opens up good options even if they are not on the Consensus list.
As always be sure to check for late-breaking news regarding weather and lineups.
Entrant – Matt – FanDuel
Cash Game Lineup
Cash Narrative – Kluber against the Braves looks like it has the potential to be a massive night. I really wanted to get him in the lineup and doing so meant I had to scrape the bottom of the Consensus barrel. Cabrera and Kinsler provide a nice 1-2 Tigers punch against Adam Conley. I love Franklin Gutierrez vs a lefty and think he’ll put at least one ball into the seats. My off the board play is Oswaldo Arcia.
GPP Narrative – Hitting submit with Ubaldo Jimenez in my lineup made me want to throw up in my mouth. This is the ultimate risk, reward play because he’s not very good anymore. I, along with the rest of the world, will play the 2-3-4 in the Jays lineup. Pair that with a couple of O’s in Wieters and Kim along with a couple of White Sox in Anderson and the Melk Man. My lone off the board play was Melky.
Entrant – Brad- DraftKings
Cash Game Lineup
Cash Narrative – If you read my On the Hill article today you know that I want to pay up for pitching tonight, so I am going with both Greinke and Quintana. In order to get two pitchers over $10k, I had to grab every value hitting option I could find from the Consensus, plus went off the board with Adames assuming he plays again tonight.
GPP Narrative – The Cubs stack worked well last night, so I will go back to it with a three-man Cubs stack tonight coupled with a full Orioles stack against a very home run prone pitcher in Erik Johnson. Grabbed two young high-upside strikeout options with Giolito and Urias for my pitchers.
Entrant – Stephen- FantasyDraft
Cash Game Lineup
Cash Narrative – Yes, Ubaldo Jimenez is going in both lineups. Matt thinks he’s been bad, and yes he’s walked a lot, but he’s been very unlucky as well and he gets a perfect venue versus the perfect offense to pay off his extremely cheap FantasyDraft price tag. I will be having a lot of exposure to Ubaldo on all sites, which like Matt, does make me really nervous. Stanton is my favorite BvP play of the night.
GPP Narrative – No one is talking about the Rangers, so C.C. versus Beltre, one of my two off-the-board plays looks nice for tournaments. I really like the Orioles tonight and I feel like I should’ve stacked them, but maybe more people are on them than I think there will be? Anyway, Tulo burned a lot of people last night including me, so this is the perfect opportunity to play him against a much-lesser quality pitcher in Eddie Butler. Urias and Ubaldo the (Double Us! Unofficial nickname!) allow for a bunch of pop! Good luck!
