Here we are at the DFS challenge with our pals at RealTime Sports, where you can match up against my Mastersball mates and me, and prove to your friends that you are surely a better player than I!
Tune in here daily, as Patrick and I pick up the Mastersball gauntlet where you can play our daily 50/50 game ($5) or come right after me on Fridays in the free Beat the Experts contest. Beat me and you win $2, and believe me, this past week that was not hard to do!
With just nine evening contests, the choices become tighter with inclimate weather threatening New York, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.
Gerrit Cole ($7800): Cole has put up seven consecutive DFS starts with 10-plus points and is facing a team without a dominant hitter. In fact, Mother Nature is likely a greater threat to Cole's success than Atlanta.
Kris Bryant ($6700): The Cubs third sacker, who is hitting .379-4-10 against lefties, gets to face rookie lefty Ty Blach. Though a bit pricey, the shorter schedule and options make this a solid selection.
Don't forget, you can hit me up @lawrmichaels and also feel free to comment, flatter, cajole, ridicule, bewitch, bother, and bewilder in the comments section below.
