Daily Lineups For FanDuel MLB DFS – 7/25/16
Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner)
One of the biggest blunders made by many gamblers is betting against themselves. We are going to simplify the process, so if you win, you can really win – none of this barely break even nonsense.
Our new Draft Strategy is now here. Please read after the post. You can use our formula for your own wanted and given stacks and pitchers. This process wheels them all in alignment.
Now here is what we are going to do for today’s MLB DFS FanDuel style.
We Will Give You – Daily
3 – 7 team stacking options ( We are going to draw most of our players from these squads).
3 – 5 Pitching candidates (High level, midlevel and budget).
If you are looking for daily picks in roster form for DraftKings exclusively, our DK preferred site is dynastydigest.sportsblog.com
If you are looking for more players themselves than stacking options (as oppose to full lineup cards with a lot of advance for both FD/DK, plus the additional website of www.fanpicks.com) – please visit we refer you to dailyrotohelp.com (for player picks all day)
DFS is hard to win for MLB – and Sunday proved that. Despite having five great team stacks, there wasn’t a decent pitching effort to be had across the board from our 5 guys. At least we had Rick Porcello pick up a W, and Jameson Taillon wasn’t bad for Strikeouts.
Thank god we had Houston to crush Tim Lincecum, and we rode Jose Altuve‘s masterful day all the way to almost break even. We still had a fantastic week overall, and thanks to all who have participated on the reading of these posts.
We kick of Week of 17 MLB with a decent slate of games. I will tell everyone in advance that we will be ramping up for another Tuesday special evening that will include another 150 entry max effort, so we are going to be busy in the next 48 – 60 hours.
July 25, 2016: All 11 Games on the Main Slate ( if you want to avoid the sharps, please head to www.fanpicks.com – and use the PROMO CODE: HELP25 – to start playing against normal players that are just looking to play a few dollars).
Stacking Options – Todays Rankings
Baltimore Orioles vs Jorge De La Rosa (O’s should cream this guy, and if the LHP can pitch well. he may just remain in Baltimore afterwards as rumors have placed De La Rosa potentially being a fit with the Orioles. I think he gets lit up in a park where the O’s are 36 – 14, and bash a lot of jacks.
Milwaukee Brewers vs Braden Shipley (Making his MLB Debut, and that is always a risk, and a great GPP play to stack against.
Arizona Diamondbacks vs Chase Anderson (Could be a really high scoring game at Miller Park)
Toronto Blue Jays vs Colin Rea (Jays can score a pile of runs in a notice.)
Oakland A’s vs Martin Perez (Oakland has a few guys that pound LHP, and are playing better baseball right now.)
3 Pitchers to use
I think I am going to fade all of the Cubs 1 – 3 SPs (Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester and Jon Lackey the rest of the year. They all have problems with pitch counts now, and are all significantly overpriced. This ballclub has also only won half of their games since the quarter pole on the year. Not good for GPPs)
I also believe that the RedSox/Tigers, – Cardinals/Mets tilts reduces the chances of the following pitchers all to win with ease (Noah Syndergaard, Carlos Martinez, Drew Pomeranz and Justin Verlander).
Aaron Sanchez, SD @ TOR, $9600 (The Padres are an all or nothing offense, yet they struggle vs RHP that throw hard usually)
Dallas Keuchel, NYY @ HOU, $8600 (Anyone remember the ALWC game last year, and the reigning AL CY Young Winner is at home for a red hot club that is now 10 games over .500 (54 – 44) after starting the season at (7 – 17). That’s 47 – 27 in their last 74 games which is a 100 win pace on a full campaign.
Jake Peavy, CIN @ SF, $6900 (This goes with our motto to roster and ace, a midlevel guy and a bargain chucker. Peavy is a different pitcher at AT @ T Park, where he owns a 3.98 ERA, and he usually lasts around 20 outs. (You could also use Anthony DeSclafani in this game t just $7500, and I may change my mind before roster set, but for right now I will choose the far superior team at home).
Team Stacks will most likely have 3 – 4 players on each club and is preferred if they are in order of the batting lineup. In some case ministacks of 2 – with them back to back in the Batting Order can be used in expensive player picks. All of these wheeled stacks are 3 rosters of the pitchers combined with the offenses.
These are just 3 of the 30 Lineups we will construct for the night (5 team stacks wheeled x 3 pitchers, in the end, each of the clubs will have 12 STACKED rosters, so each player will be listed a lot of ( 4 – 6) times each. If you like the conventional way of selecting players. we refer you to dailyrotohelp.com (our partner website for a great list of player to select from, that isn’t exclusive to team stacks). Should you choose to use your own stacks it is easy to workout the wheeled stacks. Take the 1st team you ranked for a stack, and write all of the teams with it. Once you have completed that, you take the team to the right in the 1st stack, and run down the right side for all the clubs underneath in the lines. Each time you complete one club, you go down one line to the far right to follow the same template, until you hit your final two clubs. Each wheeled 2 team stack will have all pitchers you are going to roster to be combined with it. We like to use 3, 5, 7 or 9 team stacks. By using and odd amount of stacks you guarantee a W – L record as oppose to having the chance to be equally right and wrong.
