Hi, my name is Josh Robbins. I would like to share my Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) strategy with you on week days throughout the MLB season. FanDuel is my preferred game of skill.

I am loving the Jays rallying around the Jose Bautista incident on Sunday to absolutely crush Drew Smyly in Tampa Monday Night. I will use a 4 hitter stack of RHB including Edwin Encarnacion. Jose Bautista, Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson (who is 7 – 14 – with 3 HRS career vs the Rays Southpaw).
By the way here, the Jays are awesome (GVP’s – Great Value Plays) with EE, Joey Bats and TULO at $3700 each, while the reigning AL MVP is listed low at $4300. I suppose a lot of the pricing has to do with possible suspensions, however I fully expect these guys to appeal, which would grant them a stay of execution for tonight.
There is a misconception that Smyly is an elite pitcher. He often yields one homer per start. In his 29 career Innings worth of work versus Toronto, he has given up 6 HRs. I am calling for 2 HRs versus Smyly int his contest from these four gentlemen.
I also will use J.A. Happ to slow down the Rays lineup.
Jon Niese is to be used in the 2nd pitcher slot – because quite frankly, the Braves are 9 – 27, on the year, so Poppa Smurf has a chance to victimize the lineup.
By using the Pirates starter tonight, it affords me to use Giancarlo Stanton, Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia. I like the Boston 1 and 2 hitters because they have been swiping bags in addition to helping the Red Sox lineup.
The Blue Jays and Rangers rekindled a tense and sometimes ugly rivalry.
Baseball should take notice. They NEED rivalries like this.
