Playing ok DK:
For GPP's I have been stacking 5-6 players from the same team who are facing a bad pitcher, to go for highest possible upside and trying to score 150+ pts.

For H2H and 50/50's Ive been submitting a slightly less risk averse lineup usually with no more than 3 players from the same team.

my Tigers and Brewers stacks failed miserably this morning but that tends to happen fairly often. Very low floor, high ceiling strategy.

My main lineup for tonight looks like this:
Gio
Ross
Mccan
Davis
Cano
Beltre
Escobar
Choo
Jones
McCutchen

Really wanted to start Wacha because he looked like a great value tonight, but ended up pulling him due to weather and subbing in Ross. With 100% chance of rain + thunderstorms seemed like a good chance of PPD or getting pulled after just a couple innings due to a lengthy rain delay

The Rays sucking has not helped me the last couple of days.

SP- Gio Gonzalez
C- Carlos Ruiz
1B- Garrett Jones
2B- Dustin Pedroia
3B- Evan Longoria
SS- Xander Bogaerts
OF- Wil Myers
OF- Desmond Jennings
OF- Mitch Moreland

Tampa Bay hurt me too (x3) but my cheap picks really made me look smart. I'm sitting at #3 out of 100 right now but my team is done. Hoping to hold on. :-o

If you're looking for Ks, take whoever is facing the Mets on a given day and you're all but guaranteed to at least compete to finish in the money.

I really want to enter an early-game lineup but there's a 50% chance or greater of rain in like 4 of the games. Ugh. %-6

I had Zimmermann and Sanchez both starting. Managed to switch them both out but got stuck with an OF who's not playing. Could have been worse.

Yeah just a stupid rushed oversight on my part. I don't think the Giants lineup was posted at 12:30 when the games started but should have been more careful about it anyway. My team is doing pretty well so far too, have the first 4 of the Rockies order doing some work. Hopefully the empty spot doesn't come back to hurt me too bad. Or better yet Buster hits a pinch-hit HR late in the game. O:-)
