Friday 24th Mar 2017

Tonight is the night. That is, the last night of games to clobber me at Beat the Experts, meaning you can still match up against me and 199 other regular guys at RealTime's Friday "Beat the Experts" contest where you can play for free and should you beat me--which these days is not the big deal it seems--you can net a tidy $2 profit. Do give the game a shot: It has been a fun season and it should be a fun final night of the regular season challenge.

There is indeed some wet weather on the Eastern Seaboard, with showers threatening in New York, Philly, Boston, Denver, Chicago, and St. Louis.

As far as pitchers today, let's have some fun and take Marco Estrada ($7600), who can get whiffs, and who is facing Boston, who already clinched, and who might be resting some of their regulars. For the second pitcher, I'll go with Daniel Norris ($5900), who can also get whiffs, taking on the Braves.

With just $13.5K going to pitching, I get to stock up on my hitters, and I like Brandon Belt ($5200), who has some pop and draws walks. My favorite play in the outfield is Yoenis Cespedes ($5500), matching up with the Phils.

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. 

Mastersball’s daily MLB DFS projections for DraftKings, RealTime Sports, FanDuel, Fantasy Aces and Yahoo daily games are now for Mastersball Platinum subscribers only. Not yet a member? Join today!

Accessible from our front page at noon each day and updated before first-pitch, let’s put the projections to use at RealTime Sports, specifically the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests are again very popular in 2016.

With a full schedule of games today, finding players to build a winning team should be easy. Given my preference for hurlers playing on home turf, my first pitcher is Max Scherzer ($9900). My choice for the second pitcher is Chris Sale ($9400). If one of the above two games is postponed or if you cannot fit one of the above pitchers under the salary cap, Justin Verlander ($7800) is a valid alternate.

As far as the offense, I'll be putting my money on the Red Sox-Yankees game. Hanley Ramirez ($5600) has done well recently. Andrew Benintendi ($3400) is back and quite inexpensive. Of the Yankees, I like Gary Sanchez ($5100).

The end is coming. This is the final RealTime Sports DFS piece of the 2016 season.

Two more times you can take me on at Beat the Experts, meaning you can still match up against me and 199 other regular guys at RealTime's Friday "Beat the Experts" contest where you can play for free and should you beat me--which these days is not the big deal it seems--you can net a tidy $2 profit.

Aside from some potential showers in Minnesota, the weather looks good for Friday.

Last week, I went whole hog with big time starting pitchers Cole Hamels and Jose Fernandez, who cost a collective $17.6 K and earned a grand total of 8.33 points. These seemed such reasonable picks figuring both hurlers were going against weak teams who whiffed a lot, but the results speak for themselves.

Since there are no true marquee pitchers going today, I went the other way, grabbing Andrew Cashner ($6700) facing the Braves and Jon Gray ($6000), who is facing the Dodgers, but is pretty good away from Coors.

Then, I built a strong infield, and played with my outfield, going solid with Yoenis Cespedes ($5500) and then gambling on Coco Crisp ($3400) and Leonys Martin ($3800). Do note though to check your rosters this afternoon to confirm this latter pair, particularly Crisp, are playing.

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. 

Following are my top selections for the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest at RealTime Fantasy Sports on Monday, September 26, the final Monday of the 2016 regular season – unless there are any ties! As always, $135 in prizes are available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests remain very popular in 2016.

On a Washington Nationals staff with so many big names, Tanner Roark ($6600) has flown under the radar. Yet, the right-hander has been red-hot, with just four earned runs allowed over his last five starts, with 28 strikeouts over those 32 innings (1.13 ERA). His Monday night opponent at home is the going-nowhere Arizona Diamondbacks.

One hitter Roark should avoid, however, is Snakes’ star Paul Goldschmidt ($6800). Over his last two series, five games on the road at San Diego and Baltimore, the first baseman went 9-for-20 (.450) with three home runs and six RBI. In limited head-to-head career action, Goldy is 2-for-6 against Roark plus a walk and a sac fly.

Compete against the Mastersball staff at RealTime Fantasy Sports here. I can be followed on Twitter @b_walton.

My first pitcher is Jon Lester ($8,900). Given my preference for hurlers playing on home turf, my choice for the second pitcher is Hisashi Iwakuma ($7,600).

If one of the above two games is postponed, Sean Manaea ($5,800), with the unexpectedly hot-hitting A’s, is a valid alternate.

As far as the offense, I'll be putting my money on the Rangers playing at home against the Los Angeles Angels. Adrian Beltre ($5,500) has been hot recently. Of the Halos, the same note applies to Mike Trout ($6,800), assuming the salary cap will allow you to field him, and Albert Pujols ($5,000). From this game, I also like Andrelton Simmons ($3,700).
