DraftKings Daily Lineups For May 17 2019

By MLB Reports

DraftKings has an awesome new game option called “Tiers”, 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 16 – 64 total scenarios.  The key is to wheel all scenarios and then if a contest doesn’t fill the quota – you find a few other contests to do so.  

Today we are wheeling 2 different players per tier – which will give us 64 different rosters.  49 of those scenarios will go the $5 Knuckleball contest where there are 1664 rosters in play ($7K in prizes).  For Roster #50 we will use our top roster and enter the $12 Single Entry that has 98 rosters for players and $1K.

For rosters 51 – 54 we will enter the Solo Shot contest.  We were allowed 20 entries (so we will use 4 roster trains x5 $1).

For Roster 55 we used a 20 roster train of the same lineup for the Quarter Jukebox where there were 3567 other entrants, There is 3K in the prize pool.

For Rosters 56 – 58 we will use the $2 Tablesetter contest for 7 entries.  Roster trains of 2 for 2 rosters and 3 for the other one.

For Roster 59 we will enter a 6 player winner take all contest for $10.

For Roster 60 we enter a 6 player $5 contest with the top 2 being paid.

For Roster 61 we are part of a $5 contest 20 player field with top 4 being paid.

For Roster 62 we are in a 10x booster for 40 players and the top 3 win $20 ($2 entry fee)

For Rosters 63 and 64 we are in two separate $5 entries that pays the top 9 out of 30 entrants win $15.

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

Christian Yelich, George Springer, Nolan Arenado, Alex BregmanGary Sanchez, Rhys Hoskins, Joey Gallo, Paul DeJongMarcell Ozuna, Trey Mancini, Paul Goldschmidt and Freddie Freeman are the players we are using tonight.

1 Christian Yelich, –  MIL – H

2 George Springer, HOU – V

3 Cody Bellinger, LA – Not Using

4 Charlie Blackmon, COL – Not using Read the rest of this entry
