Here's a lineup I think I may go with tonight:

P- Ryu
P- Wood
C- Posey
1B- Moss
2B- Altuve
3B- Matt Dominguez
SS- Brandon Hicks
OF- Crisp
OF- Morse
OF- Springer

I really like both Ryu and Wood. Posey is due for a big night and he is playing at Coors. Went cheap at 3B and SS. Springer is still relatively cheap at $3400

tonight I like:

Detroit stack vs. rookie lefty
Giant stack vs. Morales at Coors
O's stack vs. Dickey
Blue Jay stack vs. Gonzalez
Cub stack vs. McCarthy at Wrigley

then see how much $ you have left for pitching, lots to choose from

I'm probably rolling with this:

SP Price
SP Ryu- Keep going back and forth between him and Wood. I'd need to make a few demotions to the lineup to get Wood in there, so I think I'll stick with Ryu. For now. :-o

C Posey- Agreed that he's in for a big night and I'm hoping others have a bad taste in their mouth from last night and fade him.
1B Miggy- If he doesn't do it tonight, then something is seriously wrong and I'm staying away for a long time.
2B Arias- Punt in a good situation.
SS Romine- Ditto.
3B Panda- Too good of a value not to pick him.
OF Moss/Joyce- Easy value picks.
OF Pence- More Giants at Coors.

Crappy night. Hopefully can bounce back on the early games today.

Which type of games to play?

I've been playing these daily games for about 3 weeks now. I figured I'd start slow and develop a good strategy before betting more aggressively. I've been playing 4 or 5 $1 games every night (on fanduel) and have basically been breaking even. I started with $25 and now have $21. Well, I still have no clue which games to play. I started out playing a lot of 50/50 games. Now I'm cashing more in 10 and 20 teams games. I have only cashed once in a 100 team or larger.

What type games do you all play and why? Thanks in advance.

Playing Ryu over Wood cost me $700. Bleh.

50/50. I can build a lineup that puts me in the top half. You dont win the huge amounts of cash, but if done right you can make some nice money over time.

I'm on a downswing right now. Keep ending up with around 100 pts and barely missing all my double and triple ups. Usually have 2 or 3 guys who just don't score or one of my pitchers blows up in the 5th inning and just ruin me. Started Kinsler and MCab yesterday who put up a combined 50 by the 3rd inning and then ended up scoring 50 more total the rest of the day. Pretty frustrating.

Pretty pissed that ATL/MIA wasn't included in the "Early" games. I absolutely loved Harang today and definitely would've started him.

Doing mostly 50/50 games on Draftkings.

Right now I'm in an "early" game with a guaranteed payout to 20 players. With only 22 entries, it's money in the bank.

Limited entry games (<80 players) have been more profitable so far.
