There was nothing bogus about Jeff Boggis' 149.5 total for Week 4, Cycle III of the Tout Wars DFS tourney curated by the one and only Lord Zola on DraftKings. Jeff rode Jacob deGrom (39.35) and Lance McCullers (13.2) along with Giants first sacker Brandon Belt (27) on the path to victory, edging out second-placer Zola who bagged 142.7 points, fueled largely by Robinson Cano (37) and Stephen Vogt (30). Jeff B. banged out 442.6 points to top the June circuit.
Rotowire's Jeff Erickson eeked out a second-place finish, earning his golden ticket with 434.25 points. Though Jeff could nudge just 87 points from his team for the week, with his dominant 151.65 points to claim Week 3 victory, Jeff the other bested the ever-steady troika of Vlad Sedler (431.6), Derek Carty (427) and Zola (418.6), who rounded out the Top Five for the month.
Thus far, Howard Bender, Lenny Melnick, along with Carty and Zola had earned entrance to the Finale, and they are now joined by the pair of Jeffs. Cycle 4 begins this coming Friday. You can check the standings here. Log into the site every Friday and we each provide a couple of picks we like for the evening.
For the archivists, the Touts play a daily game against one another every Friday at DraftKings. Lord Zola is the curator of this fine mess, which breaks the season into five four-week cycles, with the two teams garnering the most points over each advancing to a final championship that includes the Tout collecting the most points over all 20 weeks.
Remember to go to the Tout Wars site for our Friday picks. And, tune into the Tout Wars Hour on the FNTSY network, hosted by me, with Justin Mason and featuring Lord Z every Thursday night at 8 PM ET.
