Hopefully, it was a fun-filled holiday Thursday for everyone and your lineups produced a return on your investment. On to Friday’s MLB slate of 13 games. Plenty of value to be found and a decent amount of good pitching options make for an interesting night of DFS. Grab your scorecards everybody, we’re going Around the Horn!
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 that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.
Pinch-hitting for your normal Wednesday MLB DFS writer, I will be taking you through some options for the main slate of games on Draftkings. These options can also be used on Fanduel or Yahoo as well. Let’s get right into it as we present this week’s Locks, Stacks, and Barrels. 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.

Even though the last 81 games were meaningless to the team, this stretch is somewhat an indication of the growth occurring in the organization.
We always talk about how deep the Outfield is, but if you were to construct your outfield from just this list of 25 players, you would be in great shape.
