DraftKings has an awesome new game option called “Tiers” in contests, It lets you select all your players without any salary cap per position all. Instead, you pick one batter from 6 different boxes to choose from – in which 4 – 9 players appear per tier. This is a great new contest selection for those who hate having to value shop 2 pitchers and all positions from 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C and 3 OF positions.
Here is the strategy we are using for gameplay tonight.
For every tier, we are ranking the top two players from each. We will then wheel all of those players with each other for 64 total scenarios.
57 of those scenarios will go to the $5 Knuckleball contest where there are 1902 rosters in play ($8K in prizes). We will have 3% of the rosters entered.
We then will use a 20 roster train (all rosters the same)/7134 entries in the $1.5K prize pool for 25 cents entry fee each in order to arrive at $5 value.
We will then enter 20 entries in the Solo Shot contest out of the 3567 rosters and use roster trains of 5 for four different teams and that assesses our roster scenarios of 59 – 62 all to garner $5 value of each.
For Roster 63 we will enter the $2 Tablesetter for 4 entries ($8 total) and this will be our 2nd best roster. Rosters 63 & 64 are always a little bigger bet.
For Roster #64 we will enter the single entry $1k Base Hit – competing against 97 other players with a cost of a $12 bet. This will be our best roster available. Always to be HHHHHH in our 6 scenario roster wheel.
Of course, you can use your own 2 players per each tier. Rank them 1 and 2 and then assign them Home (H) for 1 and V (V) Visitor for 2. Simply use our 64 wheeled scenarios and match them up with our master list for 64 scenarios. The 1 ranked player is always H’s and the 2nd ranked player for you is always the V’s.
$330 is what we have riding on the festivities. We have 12 out of the 36 players playing tonight.

I review the night’s games including Vlad Jr’s first two homers. And once again, I make a case for the Nationals to make a managerial change. I brought up a name familiar to Washington: Dusty Baker.
