    My squad:

    P Justin Masterson MIN@CLE $7,600 – I’m putting my credo of only starting pitcher at home to the test here as I am leaving some awfully nice options on the board in Felix Hernandez, Doug Fister and Clayton Kershaw. The other arm I considered was C.C. Sabathia at home versus the Oakland Athletics, but the A’s remind me of a softball team and could take C.C. deep a few times so I let the ball yard be the deciding factor and opted with Masterson at the more pitcher friendly Progressive Field. Admittedly, I am a leery of the choice since the opposition Twins have several quality lefty swingers in Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Chris Parmelee and newcomer Oswaldo Arcia. Masterson’s splits are well-documented – he slays right handed batters but can struggle facing lefthanders.

    C Russell Martin WAS@PIT $3,000 – Each of my hitters profiles the same: off-handed matchup at home facing what I perceive to be a lesser hurler. Martin squares off against Ross Detwiler.

    1B Ryan Howard MIA@PHI MIA@PHI $3,300 – Howard is facing Ricky Nolasco at home. I wanted to pile on this matchup so Howard will have some FanDuel friends tonight.

    2B Chase Utley MIA@PHI $4,100 – And that is teammate is Utley, another offhanded matchup. Howard and Utley both hit towards the top of the order which is another plus

    3B Mike Moustakas CWS@KAN $2,900 – Moose is off to a slow start so hopefully facing Dylan Axelrod will be his elixir.

    SS Mike Aviles MIN@CLE $2,600 – This is a little bit of a risk as I am assuming Aviles finds a spot against southpaw Pedro Hernandez. I'll check back when lineups are announced but my guess is Jason Kipnis is sitting.

    OF Starling Marte WAS@PIT $4,200 – My dice roll for the week is going with a couple of high priced outfielders facing the same starter, Detwiler. Marte is scoring tons of runs and can accrue FanDuel points in number of ways so I’ll hope the Bucs’ leadoff hitter has a big night.

    OF Andrew McCutchen WAS@PIT $4,200 – If Detwiler is on, I could be in for a long night, but if he is off, it could be a fun one. Cutch is not lighting it up, but like Marte he can score fantasy points via pop or speed.

    OF Ichiro Suzuki OAK@NYY $3,100 – This pick works out nicely as the money works and it gets a top of the order guy in the lineup in a good hitter's park.

    This team has a weird feel to it, probably because more so than usual, I forced it to fit my criteria of focusing on players at home with off-handed matchups against weaker pitchers, hopefully in a hitter’s park. This will be interesting for me to follow.

    What do you have?

    Moustaksa rained out so I'm adding Nolan Arenado and switching in Brett Gardner for Ichiro.

    White Sox are LOADING UP LHP v Masterson -- should be interesting.

    Weather in KC is sketchy so I'm ready to switch to Nolan Arenado vs. Matt Moore or Juan Francisco against Shaun Marcum.
