Patrick Davitt managed to assemble the best Tout Wars Daily squad to complete Week 4, Period 4 of the contest, scoring 159.5 points on the strength of Jose Ramirez (33 points), J.T. Realmuto (26), Brett Gardner (22), Andrew McCutchen (21) and Jaime Garcia (20.4).
Mike Gianella (141.6) finished second for the week, with Phil Hertz (141) going third, Rick Wolf (128.6) taking fourth while Todd rounded out the top five with 127.75, grabbing the top slot for Period 4, and his second golden ticket to the finals, with 582.8 points.
Andrea Lamont managed 109.35 for the cycle, but that was enough to push her total to 522.35 points, a second-place finish and the second golden ticket.
Period 5 begins this Friday, leaving just one more Period of four weeks for the Touts to hit the finals come September.
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 9 PM ET.
