MLB DFS: Arms, Bats, and Stacks for August 13, 2019

Joey Ricotta  Aug 13th, 2019

Weather is definitely a concern tonight. Be sure to recheck every game before locking your lineups. It’s weird to say, especially because Chris Sale is on the slate tonight, and we are always worried about his massive strikeout upside, but I think we can save a few bucks at pitcher tonight.

MLB DFS: Tough Tuesday Picks for July 16, 2019

Joey Ricotta | July 16th, 2019

When I first looked at the pitchers lined up for tonight’s full boat of games, I may or may not have vomited in my mouth a little bit. With this many games, you wouldn’t expect it to be such a struggle to find good pitching, from a fantasy perspective at least. The pitching we would normally pay for at certain ranges is priced ridiculously high because of the lack of pitching overall. Nothing against Lance Lynn, because he’s been terrific so far this season, but when he’s the highest-priced pitcher on Draftkings, you know it’s going to be an uphill battle and similar to pulling teeth to put together some solid lineups. The best advice I can give, don’t watch any of these guys actually pitch. Not because they are terrible pitchers, but because you will drive yourself crazy. Watch the games you have hitters from unless there is some correlation between the two and then I don’t know what to tell you. I’m sorry but suffer away. Now, let’s get into the toothaches and picks for tonight’s games. Excuse me. Locks and Stacks. Continue reading

Joey Ricotta | June 18th, 2019

Well, it’s one of those days where there are a ton of hitters and pitchers that make for viable options because it’s a full slate of games tonight. I’ve done my best job to try to pinpoint some players you can use in all formats. Join me as I take a look at which pitchers to target, two bats, and two stacks.

What’s Wrong with Jack Flaherty?

Jack Flaherty seems to be figuring it out. On 4/22, Flaherty had 18 swinging strikes (40% CSW) with ten total strikeouts in a win at home against the Brewers (6.0 IP 3 H 4 ER 1 BB 10 K). Flaherty was able to dominate with impressive fastball command which has eluded him all season, racking up eight of his 18 swinging strikes on his four-seam fastball. I am a Flaherty owner and have long loved his polish and prospect pedigree, but something is wrong.

MLB DFS: Locks and Stacks 4/16/19

Joey Ricotta| April 16th, 2019

Well, hope you all had a great Jackie Robinson Day and were able to make some money last night. I hope you played Christian Yelich. I also hope you didn’t play either of the pitchers I mentioned. That might be the last time I roster Kikuchi and who knows about Cahill. Either way, the best part about MLB DFS is we get to bounce-back the next day. So, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for tonight’s huge 13-game slate. Continue reading

2019 St. Louis Cardinals Preview

John Supowitz | March 14th, 2019

The NL Central has the potential to be one of the most competitive divisions in baseball. Its division winner, the Brewers, made it to the NLCS, the Cubs made it to the Wild Card Game, up until the last week of the season, the Cardinals were competing, and Pirates also finished above . 500. The Reds were the only team not to have a winning record and are looking to change that by adding Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, and Sonny Gray to their roster.
