So, Week 1 of the Tout Wars Fan Duel is history.

What the folks at Fan Duel have done in partnership with Tout Wars is to create a weekly challenge among the 65-odd Tout Warriors. We can set rosters each Friday for games that night. In addition to a cash prize for winning, the top team also advances to an August-to-end-of-season tournament which will see the weekly winners duke it out for top dog spot in the 2015 Challenge.

Among the 35 participants last week (we can opt to play every week, or occassionally, however to keep playing after August, we must win, as noted), I placed a lowly 20th with a team that was sparked by Kevin Kiermaier, then dragged down by like cheap gambles C.J. Cron and Brandon Crawford.

The actual first week champ was our friend Scott Pianowski (from Yahoo!) who rode Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon and Drew Pomeranz to victory. Congrats @Scott-Pianowski!

A couple of my choices for tonight are the obvious, Bryce Harper ($4200), playing at home against a questionable Phillies team starting Sean O'Sullivan, and that just sounds like fun if you are a Nationals batter in general.

Second, I am taking a chance on Matt Adams ($3300) against the Reds and Johnny Cueto. Adams did get one of four hits--a homer--off of Cueto last week, and the Cincy hurler has not fared so well at new Busch, with a 2-3, 5.80 record over nine starts. I think Adams breaks out of his .167-1-2 doldrums. Well, I hope he does.

Stud pitchers are everywhere on Friday. Take your pick of Clayton Kershaw ($9800), Max Scherzer ($9200), David Price ($8900), Corey Kluber (($8900), Johnny Cueto ($8700), and Sonny Gray ($7100). So where are the cheap position options?

 

Rougned Odor ($2500) is a low-priced 2B option, especially if the recent move up the batting order sticks.

 

Jed Lowrie ($2400) has hit in six of his previous seven games with three home runs. Now he sees Jered Weaver, who may be on his last legs.

 

The Mets called up Eric Campbell ($1600). Campbell slid right in to the 3B spot and is a steal at the lowest price point in the game. Just keep in mind that he is positioned at 1B in the contest.

For Thursday, my choice was an easy one - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 contest for a $5 entry fee - but hurry if you want to join as they have been quickly filling up each day.

It sounds odd, but after selecting my first starting pitcher, Doug Fister, who is facing the toothless Phillies offense, I came back around to my second at the very end. I had so many hitting bargains that there was enough money remaining to take Madison Bumgarner, despite the Giants’ ace being the most expensive hurler for the day at $9300.

One budget player I’ve ridden along with in the early going is Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud. How can you argue with a hitter with eight RBI in eight games and coming off a home run Wednesday night?  He is still just $3100, too.

Speaking of the Mets, have you noticed the odd start from Curtis Granderson? One of the hottest hitters in spring training is off to a rough sub-Mendoza line start at the plate with a line that includes twice as many walks, 10, as hits, five. Remember that in this scoring, a walk is as good as a single. The Grandy Man’s .405 OBP makes him a stealthy play at $2800.

Play along with us here.

I am joining the MLB - MastersBall 50/50 GPP today.

The Phillies have a very lefty-leaning lineup, so I am inclined to go with Mets’ left-hander Jonathon Niese ($3,800) against them, especially with the volatile Jerome Williams as his opposition.

I had to go with the hot hand in Adrian Gonzalez ($5,600) versus Chase Anderson (who is known for his bouts with gopheritis) even with Gonzalez at home.

Finally, with the eminently hittable Erasmo Ramirez getting a turn in the rotation for the Rays, I loaded up on Blue Jays with Jose Reyes ($5,300) and Josh Donaldson ($5,700), and Jose Bautista ($5,800)in order to take advantage of that matchup.

The afternoon games are off the board for Wednesday’s MastersBall 50/50 GPP. So there is plenty of time to finish up your taxes then set your lineup for the evening. 

 

I am looking at the Royals and their smoking hot start playing in Minnesota.  Catcher Salvador Perez ($4600) looks like a solid play to build on his 3 home run, 9 RBI and .414 batting average start.

 

Hard to sort thru the pitchers as there is a mix of mostly 3rd and 4th starters taking the hill on Wednesday night.  We will stay in Minnesota and take Edinson Volquez ($3700) underpriced off his solid start.  The inexpensive starting pitcher will give you a chance to upgrade on the offensive side.

 

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at FantasyScore.
