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.

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.

We have a short slate on Monday with only seven games as part of the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, but the day is filled with interesting decisions.

Corey Kluber ($7600) is coming off his most impressive outing of the season with 30 points. That was after totaling 24 points in his previous four starts. Kluber goes against another ace with mixed results in Chris Sale ($7900). Pick one. The one virtual must-start is Matt Harvey ($9100).

With the two expensive pitchers, some inexpensive hitters are a must-find. Erick Aybar ($2700) and Freddy Galvis ($2000) are cheap shortstop options. Galvis has the added bonus of playing in Colorado.

I expect the Marlins to show some life with their recent managerial change. Marcell Ozuna ($3300) and Christian Yelich ($3500) are cheap outfield options for Monday.

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

Happy Sunday as we wrap up Week 6 with some fun potential contests while playing the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Before we start, again do note that every game East of Kansas City seems to have potential weather impacts, be they rain (most venues) or wind, which seems to be in the forecast at Kauffman Stadium.

Since pitching is indeed the core to success, and strikeouts are as noted the key, Shelby Miller ($6000) against the Fish, and A.J. Burnett ($6200) make a fun tandem going against younger teams that like to swing the bat. In particular, Burnett should be able to both get some velocity while pitching as the crafty veteran to the fun but still a bit raw young Cubbies.

On the field, I am looking at a couple of hot hitters this week, starting with Lorenzo Cain ($4100) against Chris Capuano (making his first start of the year) and the Buccos Josh Harrison ($3400) against Jake Arrieta.

Harrison is hitting a blistering .524-2-4 with a steal and six runs over his past five games, while Cain is at .301-0-6 with four runs over his last four.

As usual, you can take me on (now is a good time, as I am in a dry spell) at FantasyScore and claim the appropriate bragging rights.
