Monday 22nd May 2017

It has been a rough week finding pitchers in the Fantasy Score univers.  I tried some less-than-studs earlier in the week in a strategy that proved to be highly ineffective.

While even early season studs like Chris Archer can crash and burn on occasion, we will stick with chalk.  Matt Harvey ($9000) has scored at least 13 points in each of his five starts (as the beneficiary of five wins).  My only concern is a decline in strikeouts down to three in his last start, but the Phillies should help that total.

Then, I am going to bypass David Price ($8900) against the Royals who do not strike out much and be on James Shields ($7300) and his high K total (just needs to avoid the bats of Paul Goldschmidt and the recently-hot Mark Trumbo),

On the hitting side, the best match-ups look like they side with the Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers/Rockies, and Reds/White Sox (although there are some early weather concerns in Colorado and Chicago, and much of the midwest and south).

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Quoting marc:
Alleyoops - Hope you have a chance to pull Ortiz. He lost his appeal and is serving suspension tonight.

Thanks for the heads-up. I was on the golf course all day, so didn't get to swap him out. I did sub in Rasmus for Inciarte, who isn't starting. Nice that FantasyScore lets you change lineups until the player's game starts.

Well said and I quote " I tried some less-than-studs [pitchers] earlier in the week in a strategy that proved to be highly ineffective."
My same experience with DFS 50/50. No more inexpensive pitchers for me. Will write more about it next week.

I too like Shields, along with Gio today, and I also am going with some Padres hitters against Hellickson.

Oops and Pasko had good days yesterday.

Sigh, I KNEW Arod was the play over Longo (who did not even start). That play was the difference between bank and bust.
