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 Lawr and I pick up the Mastersball gauntlet where you can play our daily 50/50 game ($5) or come right after Lawr on Fridays in the free Beat the Experts contest. Beat him and you win $2, and believe me, this past week that was not hard to do!
Jimmy Nelson ($6300): Upping his K/9 from 7.03 last season to 9.09 this season and lowering his BB/9 from 4.32 last season to 2.24 this year, Nelson has vastly improved this year. With six quality starts in eleven games, Nelson faces the struggling Giants tonight. Expect him to rack up the points.
J.D. Martinez ($6200): With the money you are saving on Nelson, you can afford to bring out the big bats in tonight’s 12-game slate. J.D. has been in crush mode since returning from the DL on May 13 to the tune of 10 homers and a .293 AVG. In his last four games versus the Angels, he is batting .417 with five hits, including two homers over 12 at-bats. I’d be looking to stack Tigers against the always struggling Alex Meyer.
