On Thursday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - 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 continue to fill up quickly.

Here are a couple of my picks.

The evening pitching options include no starters over $8500, so there is no clear favorite. I am staying away from the top two, the Francisco Liriano-Lance Lynn matchup in St. Louis, instead casting my lot with the number three option, Stephen Strasburg ($8000). Those who remember how the Nationals’ star’s first unlucky 13 starts went may be surprised, but I liked what I saw in his first game back from the disabled list. Last Saturday, Strasburg carved up the Rockies with one run allowed on three hits and 12 strikeouts over seven innings. One caution is that he is facing the Giants on the road, but I still like the pick.

NOTE that Sonny Gray has been scratched as a starter today due to back spasms, and that Jesse Chavez has moved up in the rotation for the day.

Is there any hotter hitter in the game right now than Michael Brantley ($5600)? The Cleveland outfielder has six multi-hit games in his last seven, including five doubles, five RBI and six runs scored over the last four nights. The left-handed hitting Brantley does more damage against right-handers and his Thursday opposition is Yankees’ righty Nathan Eovaldi at home. Book it!

FScore-160x320Tuesday proved to be a funny day for baseball and DFS as all the home teams in the Majors won, a rare occurrence. Do not, however, let that get in the way of playing the Mastersball Daily 50-50 Challenge, wherein your team can be home, visitors, whatever.

There are a lot of fine pitching choices available today--though many are in day games and thus not available for drafting--but I am staking my main pitching bucks on Jacob deGrom ($9500), pitching at home against a Rockies team that is pretty poor at hitting right-handers.

A couple of hitting selections I favor are Lorenzo Cain ($5800), facing erratic southpaw Jorge De La Rosa and his 4.85 ERA, and the low-key but steady Nick Markakis ($3400), who has produced 32 points over his last ten games, being shut out just once. For a guy posting a .302 batting average, that is a potential bargain.

Welcome to another Tuesday at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge, where for just $2 you can not only have a chance to double your money, but own bragging rights in beating the Touts in the DFS format (Click to play: FanDuel).

There are indeed some prime pitching choices available today, but I am going with the Angels and Hector Santiago ($8400) facing the White Sox, who are hitting .243 against southpaws with a terrible .288 OBP. Santiago has pretty much whiffed a hitter per inning (122 K over 129 frames) and that is good enough for me.

In support, I grabbed Mike Trout ($4700) to help out Santiago, as the Halos are facing Carlos Rodon and his 5.00 ERA and 1.690 WHIP over 89 innings (I like switch-hitting Erick Aybar, at $2300, too).

Finally, joining Aybar up the middle is Brandon Phillips ($3300), who is hitting .333-1-1 with 14 hits over his last 42 at-bats, facing Colin Rea and his 4.84 ERA and 1.584 WHIP.

Remember, you can trash talk about whipping the Touts and make a handy $2 profit at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge!

FScore-160x320I will be ready to take you on from my regular Tuesday spot - 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 continue to be very popular.

Madison Bumgarner ($9500) and Zack Greinke ($9800) are inviting, but expensive. Taylor Jungmann ($6600) and Taijuan Walker ($5900) are valid and much cheaper alternatives. Maybe a combination of the four is the best solution to stay under the budget ceiling. I am leaning towards the Bumgarner/Walker duo.

On the hitters’ side, Yoenis Cespedes ($5400) and Nelson Cruz ($6200) are tempting, but it will be difficult to fit both within the budget constraints. A viable solution is to couple one of them with inexpensive players like Danny Valencia ($3700), who has been quite productive since he has joined the Oakland A’s recently. Two other relatively inexpensive hitters who have done exceedingly well this past week are near namesakes Chris Davis ($5000) and Khris Davis ($4900). I am adding Ben Zobrist ($4300) to complement a well-rounded team.

Note that rain is expected in Cleveland.

FScore-160x320We have a short seven-game slate for the FantasyScore Challenge, Monday. On the pitching side, Chris Sale ($9400) and Johnny Cueto ($9300) head up the list. Sale continues to rack up the strikeouts but is coming off back-to-back games allowing seven earned runs. Cueto only struck out two Tigers in his Royals debut last week and now he faces those same Tigers again. On the cheaper side, the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez ($6900) has spun together seven straight starts allowing two or fewer runs. Jon Niese ($6700) has been good as of late, short one start against the Dodgers. The new Mets offense improves his chances of earning a win. I am going to start with Gio and Niese to see what kind of team I can build and then explore using Cueto for Niese.

 

On the hitting side, the Mariners' Nelson Cruz ($6200) continues on a tear. Cruz has seven multi-hit games in his past nine, including seven home runs. Equally as hot as Cruz is the Orioles' Chris Davis ($4700). Davis has hit nine home runs and driven in 25 runs in his past 17 games.

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