Happy 4th everybody! Had a rough outing last night, but I feel good about my chances to bounce back. No individual lineups today. Just a general concept of what my lineups are looking like. A reminder that fanthrowdown, starfantasyleagues, frafty, draftday, draftkings, starstreet, dailyjoust, doubleup, sportstradex, and draftteam all have freerolls tonight. Win cash, vouchers, or other prizes. Draftstreet, fanduel, fantasyfeud, fantazzle, and rotodraft are other places to play. There's something for everyone! I’m only playing the evening games tonight. Not taking my chances of having a player sit out.
I’m more than happy to spend big $ on Wainwright, Teheran, and Verlander. In 1 pitcher leagues you have to take one of those three. In 2 or 3 pitcher leagues it will handicap you, but I’ll take my chances working on a small budget to build my offense. If you’re really strapped for cash, Iwakuma is a solid substitute.
C- McCann, Molina, and Rosario are in the top-tier. I have one of those guys on the vast majority of my teams. I also own V-Mart where he’s C eligible and reasonably priced. Dark horse- Zunino.
1B- I love Matt Adams against Joe Blanton. Best bang for your buck anywhere IMO.
2B- Since Carpenter and Kinsler are out of my price range, I like a couple of Rockies. Rutledge and DJ. Hoping the Coors Field factor kicks in
3B- Freese and Arenado stand out as attractive cheap options. Noticing a trend of Cardinals and Rockies hitters?
SS- Using Peralta in most formats. Hasn’t had an XBH since 6/20. He’s due, right? Rogers pitches to contact so here’s hoping.
OF- Upton, Ethier, Kemp, and Heyward won’t break the bank and those are some big names to gamble on. Dirks and Jay are cheaper options who have appeal based on their career splits, trotting them out where it’s necessary.
