We have just 7 games on a light day slate.  It is slate that is low on the pitching with just 4 quality options for to choose from.  The others have just too many question marks.  We get to see 4 rookies and a bullpen night from the Angels as possible pitchers to attack.  For a short slate, we have plenty of hitting options to choose from.  This will happen with the highest pitcher on either site being $9,500.

We have 14 games on the Tuesday slate with plenty of hitters to choose from.  I am a little conflicted on the pitchers on this slate.  I don’t find any of them to be stand out choices.  There seem to be warts for all of them whether it is too high priced, dangerous match-up or just too many question marks.  Maybe when the lineups come out, we see find some match-ups to exploit.  As always I encourage everyone to check out all of the articles we offer as maybe someone else has a stronger conviction on pitching.  As of publication, this is the way I would go.  The weather needs to be monitored as we have several trouble spots to keep an eye on.

I want to start out by congratulating Jeff Collins on winning the Draftkings live final for a $500,000!!!  He has been running red hot lately and finished it off with a monster weekend.

We have 10 games on the Monday slate with some big-name pitchers and some unknown rookies.  Some of the rookies find themselves in decent spots and others are ones we will be looking to pick on.  Homer Bailey and Bartolo Colon make appearances on this slate so there is two more pitchers to pick on.  You should be able to build lineups in multiple ways depending on whether you want to pay up for pitching or go with my cheap play of the day.

This maybe the weirdest slate of the season.  I found myself ranking a ton of players I wouldn’t ever think I would.  The best pitchers are not in great spots and we have some bad hitting teams facing off against some bad pitchers.   It should be an interesting slate. The weather looks to minimal in a large 14 game slate.

We have 6 games on the Thursday night slate and 3 games on the day slate.  I provided rankings for the afternoon slate and a full breakdown of the evening one.  It is not the best night slate with two of the better pitching options coming off the DL and the other two facing off head to head.
