Even for a day like today, an unheralded Thursday, the matchups offer plenty of FantasyScore options.

It seems that most of us begin setting the roster up by first eyeing the pitchers. That makes sense because pitchers take the biggest budget chunk, but they also lead to the most points. For me, playing the premiere starter route has led to success, but today's starting pitcher options are pointing me to the opposite strategy: go with inexpensive hurlers.

For example, Nick Martinez ($4300) has been outstanding so far this year, thus he is one choice.

As far as the hitters, two teams will face pitchers with a high ERA: The Yankees are playing against Chris Tillman ($4400 for an ERA of 6.23) and San Diego will see Rubby De La Rosa ($3300 at 5.40). That means lefty outfielders Brett Gardner ($4500) and Jacoby Ellsbury ($5900) are solid plays, along with Matt Kemp ($5700) and Justin Upton ($5600). All are solid higher priced options if you go the cheap starter route.

However, to complement your team with low priced hitters, look at Miami/San Francisco. From this game, Nori Aoki ($2000), Joe Panik ($2200) and Martin Prado ($3000) are worth targeting.

My team is set in stone at the FantasyScore Mastersball Daily 50/50 contest. Join the fun and take me on.

I'll be playing today (Wednesday) over at the FantasyScore Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.Here are a few of my picks for today's contest.

Today I am targeting matchups against Philly and Jerome Williams. Andrelton Simmons ($2300) for the price and the contest is a nice fit as is Freddie Freeman ($5,200) left-handed bat. 

Since it is a 50/50 game, I went with some solid contributers, selecting Jose Altuve ($5,700) against the very hittable Colby Lewis and righty Josh Donaldson ($5,800) against the left-handed C.C. Sabathia.

Josh Reddick ($3,800) has been showing tremendous plate discipline, making contact at a very high rate while hitting for power too. A battle against the pitch-to-contact Kyle Gibson makes him a solid play. 

For pitching, Scott Kazmir at ($6,800) vs. Minnesota and Gerrit Cole ($8,700) offer some of the more reliable starter selections this year, but you may need a backup plan for Kazmir as it could rain. Mike Leake has a good track record against Pittsburgh and is a bargain at $4,700 but would then be facing off against Cole.

Play along with us here.

For Tuesday, you can find me in my regular spot - the FantasyScore Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $225 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.

Here are a few of my picks for today's contest.

As much as I am tempted to take Stephen Strasburg at home against Miami, his $7700 price is a bit too rich for my blood. A better value pick at $1000 less may be the Yankees’ Michael Pineda against Toronto. The oft-injured righty is off to a fine start with 32 strikeouts against just two walks this season. Versus the Jays, Pineda has a decent career ERA of 3.93 in six starts.

The Cardinals and Cubs had a 10-9 slugfest on Monday night with three more games coming. One of the unsung leaders of the MLB-best 19-6 St. Louis club is Matt Holliday at $4300. The outfielder has reached base in every game in which he has played this season, with a .462 OBP that is first in the National League. He draws Kyle Hendricks at home Tuesday night, against whom he is 4-for-9 with two long balls and four RBI.

Holliday’s teammate Jhonny Peralta is quietly hitting .305 through the first month with 12 RBI in 25 games. My $3500 shortstop pick is 3-for-8 in his career against the struggling Hendricks (5.23 ERA).

Play along with us here.

FantasyScore players have a difficult choice to make on Monday. You can load up on Clayton Kershaw ($9500) and Felix Hernandez ($9300), using 37% of your budget. Or you can look at some cheaper options like Dallas Keuchel ($5800) and Carlos Martinez ($5000). At this point, I am leaning towards Keuchel and Martinez, which will give me the opportunity to load up on Rockies, Diamondbacks and Astros on the offensive side.

If you take the Kershaw and Hernandez route, consider cheap offensive options like DJ LeMahieu ($2900), Luis Valbuena ($2500) and Michael Saunders ($2200).


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

Sunday's games provide some fun Fantasy Score plays, starting with the first game of the day, which matches up the Phillies with the Marlins, and where I am happy to grab Giancarlo Stanton ($6200) against the largely untested (0-1, 23.50 over 2.2 frames) Severino Gonzalez. Similarly, Jarred Cosart has been just great of late (1-0, 2.79, with 11 whiffs over 19.2 innings) and at $3100, I am thinking he is one of the bargain guys that helps me drop players like teammate Stanton into the starting lineup.

Then I went with a pair of right-handed hitters against Baltimore lefty Wei-Yin Chen, going with Evan Longoria ($4800) and Kevin Kiermaier ($3100) to help pad my offense and ideally finish in the money.

My roster is set, so hopefully you can take me on for bragging rights at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.
