Saturday 23rd Sep 2017

When looking at the match-ups for Saturday, it was very easy to jump on a couple of hitters right off the bat. Those two players would be the White Sox Jose Abreu ($5900) and Alexei Ramirez ($3700), both of whom have had success against their pitching nemesis, Ricky Nolasco. It is more a case of Nolasco (0-1, 18.00) simply not being very good.

I am going with the Rays big arm these days, Chris Archer ($7000), looking for some strikeouts and maybe a win to help boost my DFS team, for even though the Rays are playing in Tampa, they are the visiting team for the weekend. Still, I am willing to bet it will feel like pitching at home to Archer.

I also like the Padres bats (Matt Kemp $5200, Justin Upton $4900) hitting at home against lefty Jorge De La Rosa.

It's Saturday at FantasyScore, which means a bunch of us--Rob, Marc, Brian, Pasko--will likely be playing, so join us at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, and get there early (yesterday I tried to set a roster in the afternoon and the league had filled at 30, and was closed).

Tis true Oops. This is definitely different--and more forgiving--at FantasyScore than FanDuel because of the second hurler.

Similarly FantasyScore does not penalize hitters for outs.

That might seem squirrely, but some Fantasy Football leagues penalize for a missed field goal, and some do not (not trying to justify or rationalize) so just a variation on a theme.

A different type of math problem, no?

As for the Sale issue, you are right. And, while I play to win (and I did pick Sale, but because I like him and he strikes out hitters) I like to go the different route most of the time.

Hence picking Heston as a FanDuel starter Friday. That way either you blow everyone away, or fail majestically (it failed, but it is a path I prefer, and one Friday this year I will hit paydirt).

What it boils down to for me is it is fun!

i was asking specific to Fantasy Score --I know the data for the other sites. I'll take down this WTA and am looking at a nice night at Fantasy Aces as well.

My experience is that it is very site-dependent. 2 and 3 pitcher sites will need higher scores than 1 pitcher sites, etc. And of course, on any site, it depends how the most popular guys perform that day. If everyone has Sale, as the other night, and he sucks, it will take less points than usual to cash. Small sample, but looking at my last 4 MB results on FantasyScore, I missed cashing with 44, and cashed with 35, 54, 71. Pretty sure 61 would cash in large-pool 50/50s tonight, but in a 3-person WTA it's way dependent on the other two with whom you're competing.

Anyone know what a typical cashing score is in a 50/50? I'm doing the late slate only and am at 61 and counting. This is in a 3-man WTA contest.

Several interesting pitching options: Arrieta, Archer, McHugh,Volquez, Price. Nice hitting options in White Sox, both LA teams, and Arizona
