With half this cycle of the ToutWars Daily Challenge under our collective belt, I actually find myself just atop my Tout Mates with the best score and a shot at the August Tournament at FanDuel. The contest pits the Touts against one another each Friday, each month through July, with the top three point getters each month winning a ticket to the finale.

At this point, I need to play it a little conservative, so even though there are a lot of great pitching choices today, I am sticking with the uber-dominant Max Scherzer ($11700) facing the less than dominant Phils who have scored the least runs in the Majors thus far in 2015.

Because Scherzer is costing so much (nearly one-third) of my total salary cap, I had to look deep for some match-ups and bargains to flesh my team out, so I am starting with a couple of left-handed Seattle hitters who are facing Marco Estrada.

First sacker Logan Morrison and shortstop cum outfielder Brad Miller (both $2800) have some pop and Estrada does give up the big fly, so I am hoping that can be exploited.

Then, the Athletics might be my local favorites, but Scott Kazmir, who is no longer a hard thrower, has been struggline (0-2, 6.06 over his last three starts), so I am looking to Evan Longoria ($3400) and Steven Souza ($3200) to supply points from the left side of my infield.

Fingers crossed!

After a dearth of Fantasy Score pitching the past two days, the stars come out to pitch on Friday. Can you score enough points rostering both Max Scherzer ($9300) and Felix Hernandez ($9200)? You can save a little money by going to Gerrit Cole ($8700 against the Cubbies), Chris Archer ($8200 against the Athletics) or Michael Pineda ($8000 against the Rangers). I am planning to go with Scherzer and King Felix.

To offset the high-priced pitching, some inexpensive offensive options are a must. Look at Randal Grichuk ($1900) to fill one of your outfield spots, while Delino DeShields Jr. ($2000) is a must-consider as he is now batting near the top of the order in Texas.

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

On Thursday, you can find me in my regular spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay if you want to join as the Mastersball contests continue to quickly fill up each day.

Here are a few of my picks.

On the pitching side, I really don’t like the options, especially with the day-game players unavailable. However, I went with Toronto’s R.A. Dickey, who draws the likely Albert Pujols-less Angels at Rogers Centre. The veteran knuckleballer’s 2015 ERA is over three runs better at home than on the road, making him an acceptable play at $4000.

In the early going, Josh Donaldson is enjoying his new home in Toronto with career-bests in all slash line categories to go with 28 RBI in 42 games. He draws Matt Shoemaker today. In their only matchups to date, the third baseman is 2-for-3 against the Halos’ hurler. I think the $5800 is worth it.

Another player off to the hottest start of his career is Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis. The second sacker draws John Danks of the White Sox, against whom he has collected seven RBI in 26 career at-bats and has a respectable .855 OPS.

Play along with us here.

Good pitching is scarce today as we look at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, with no true aces on whom to hang your hat. So, I am going with a pair of AL candidates with good strikeout rates in Jake Odorizzi ($6800) and Drew Hutchison  ($4500). Odorizzi is matching up against a fairly weak Braves lineup while Hutchison stands a fair chance at a win with Jered Weaver a shell of his former self.

On the hitting front, Colorado starters agianst Severino Gonzalez of the Phillies (meaning Troy Tulowitzki ($5100)at home is a good play), Royals starters are a good play against  Mr. Hittable himself, Jason Marquis.

I also went with some left/right match-ups, startng Bryce Harper ($6300) versus Adam Warren and Brian Dozier ($4900) facing. Jeff Locke. Finally, Matt Carpenter ($5400) has a good history against Bartolo Colon. While it hurts as a Mets' fan that Colon has been struggling over his past few starts, I'm not above taking the opportunity to use the Cardinals third-sacker to face him.

FantasyScore DFS Picks for 5/19/15 (Pasko) PDF Print E-mail

It may be easier and simpler to play FantasyScore on a slow day like yesterday, a day with a small pool of players to choose from. Not too much head scratching needed. But, I think that days like today, with a full MLB schedule are much more fun. There are 30 pitchers playing today! Let’s have some fun at FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Talking about pitchers, my theory is that a good one, one with a strong history of strikeouts, will perform well in DFS. Consequently, I tend to spend a large amount of money on pitchers. Johnny Cueto ($8900) already has 56 K’s this year. He cannot be ignored but he is pitching in KC. I do not find this matchup deserving all that money. Michael Wacha ($7600) has less K’s than Cueto. However, he is at home against the Mets and has a nice 5-0 record. I do like him today. There are also cheaper alternatives worth mentioning. The most recent outings by Jose Quintana ($4900) and Anibal Sanchez ($6000) were impressive. They both won, with Quintana striking out ten and Sanchez whiffing eight, and they play at home today. You may want to consider one or both of these players if you are close to the budget ceiling.

The choice of hitters is a bit more problematic. It seems that weak teams are up against weak pitchers, but a game that might produce hits and runs is the Texas/Boston matchup. Both teams were off on Monday. Either Prince Fielder ($4600) or David Ortiz ($4900) is a valid option for the 1B position. Outfielders not to ignore from this game are Shin-Soo Choo ($3100) and Mookie Betts ($4900). Both are relatively inexpensive.
