There are a few pitchers in good spots tonight, making it tough to pinpoint which two to play on Draftkings. Whenever that is the case, the best plan of attack is to filter in a few of them into different tournament lineups. Let’s dig into some players and matchups to take advantage of on this Monday night eight-game main slate. Continue reading →
The MLB offseason was an interesting one due to free agency, meaning the lack thereof. Some veterans, expecting big pay-days, had to settle for less than expected and a smaller number of years, quite a few noticeable acquisitions only received one-year contracts. We’re over a month into the new season, and there are still players seeking employment, including Dallas Keuchel.
Every Thursday or Friday we will take a look back on the life and career of a player. You will get some background, an iconic moment, and plenty of stats. As voted on by the Twitter community, today we look back at Kenny Lofton.
The Braves bullpen is in desperate need of help, holding a 5.17 ERA, allowing almost six walks per nine, and allowing a .297 batting average on balls in play (BABIP) in 62.2 innings pitched this season.

After some time away to reconfigure the Stream Machine for in-season matchup data (as well as taking some time off for personal reasons), I’m ready to roll out some new streaming options for the weekend matchups. As I promised earlier, I will do a check in at the end of the month in order to show the kind of stats you can get from your streaming starters. It’s important to remember that this is a season-long project, and early season streaming options are hard to figure out, as we don’t have a representative sample of in-season data until later on. Regardless, here are my picks for the weekend matchups. Continue reading →
The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps. Every day there are safe bets and dark horses but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Next week I will put up my season numbers and will track them as we go along. For today though, let’s dive right in.
