  1. Hope Lindor plays the night half then; just put him in a cash LU for the main slate tonight!!! :-)
  2. On a roll - [thanks again KP for insight]; hit my cash games two nights in a row now. Tonight's cash L/U: SP - Sale C - Avila 1B - Thames 2B - Kinsler 3B - Moustakas SS - A. Diaz OF - J. Bonifacio, M. Smith, J. Lagares
  3. Tried one line-up yesterday, a cash game, using this & it helped me to target some MINN players. First win I've had in a few weeks!
  4. Will look at those for the future. For today, just doing one GPP, Fanduel's 2:05 slate. Current roster: Straily, Contreras, Marwin Gonzalez, LeMahieu, K. Bryant, A. Simmons, K. Schwarber, Blackmon, Heyward.
  5. Agree - been using a combo of MLB.com stats page, and the daily articles/videos from rotoworld.com & rotowire.com. Was trying to play mostly cash, build up a bankroll. But even the "lock" cash guys have either fallen on their faces or got hurt [had Machado the other night when McCutcheon slid into his wrist].
  6. Fanduel - and I've got some exposure on the HOU game as well. :-)
  7. Hello - haven't traditionally done much DFS w/ baseball, usually stick to the NFL. Having said that, I put a small deposit in a few weeks ago and have been failing, miserably. Trying to follow the same concepts of looking for value, etc., just haven't had the success I have had with football, so, may not keep this up for long. Having said that, check out the weather forecast today for Wrigley Field; in the 90's and a 20mph wind blowing out. Could be a fun game to watch while raking up the fantasy points.
  8. I tend to spread it out and don't do any big $$ GPP's. Mostly SE's and low-dollar ones. Although, I do seem to do ok on the low-dollar mini's that limit the number of entries.
  9. Running with 8 LU's for $16. Want to hang on to the rest since I'm going to be coming out on top for the season regardless. Six of them heavy on ATL/GB with a very small smattering of NE/PIT. But just in case, got one that's NE-based starting w/ Brady & one PIT-based starting w/ Roethlisberger.
  10. In theory, yes, I would agree with that ........... IF we're talking a normal-sized slate. With just two games, my thought was better to try and pay up, as much as possible, for the chalky-type guys from what should be the higher-scoring game and try to hit a home run with one or two low-priced guys from the other game because it might be harder to make up the point difference of fading the bigger names. Not saying I won't have some exposure to NE/PIT - just a much lower percentage ........ especially if the weather turns out to be crappy. Guys like Hogan & White will probably see a line-up or two. Heck, I might even get real brave and toss Matt Lengel in for one of them. :-)
  11. Just for giggles, I threw in a couple of $1 mini-squib LU's for the Sunday-only games and hit 1st on one of them for $100. That's a good day for a piker like me that doesn't go in for the high-dollar stuff. Also had some low cashes in 3-4 other GPP's. Winning LU for the mini-squib: QB-Rodgers, RB-Bell/Montgomery, WR-A. Brown/D. Bryant/T. Williams, TE-Cook, K-Boswell, DEF-Pitt.
  12. Don't know how many will take one more crack at the NFL, but, I'll get a thread started just in case. Had a little success this past weekend so I'll give it one more go. Early observations - huge drop-off in the RB pricing. Bell at 9500, Freeman at 8000, D. Lewis at 7000, everybody else below that. QB - Rodgers & Ryan jump up big; Rodgers at 9600, Ryan 9200. Also, the early lines from Vegas list the O/U on the NFC game at 60!!! O/U on the AFC game is 50.5, nothing to sneeze at either. Really need to keep an eye on the weather for NE. I think the plan is to go all GPP's again & focus on the NFC game [yeah, I know - thank you Captain Obvious] and try to figure out which AFC-game player will be low-owned and go off.
  13. If you want to stack anyone for a cash LU .......... heck, any line-up, this week, consider the following from Rich Hribar at Rotoworld about ATL & Matt Ryan: "Ryan already touched up Seattle on the road for 335 yards and three touchdowns for 22.6 fantasy points in Week 6, and that was with Earl Thomas patrolling the back end. In the five games since Thomas was injured, Seattle has allowed 19 pass completions of 20 or more yards (tied for the most in the league) after allowing 35 through their opening 12 games of the season (ninth best in the league). Going downfield is what Ryan did best this season as he ranked second in completions (69) and touchdowns (15) on connections of 20 plus yards and led the league in passing yardage on such completions (2,210 yards)." Gonna have lots of exposure to the Falcons this week.
  14. Don't know how much ATL's DEF has improved the last week and a half, but, I seem to recall that the DEF was not their strong suit this season. To me, without even looking at Vegas yet, I'd have to think that this game could have the highest O/U for the weekend. I qualify that with I can't say for certain that ATL's very potent offense will be enough to overcome SEA's DEF. But I can see the Seahawks potentially needing to run more plays & conversely, giving Wilson more opportunities. I think Wilson would be a decent choice for either cash or GPP. Personally, I'm probably steering away from cash this week & will be using Wilson in a few GPP's.
  15. My Steeler-free GPP .......... Rodgers, Ajayi/Zenner, Nelson/Adams/J. Landry, Ebron, Novak, HOU.
