 DFS Showdown: Mariners/Athletics in Japan

The MLB regular season kicks off with a two-game showdown in Japan before heading back to the our land of the free and brave next week for Opening Day. These two games feature the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics. First pitch is thrown at odd times for us, but it will be 5:35am EST (2:35am PST).

The best way to have some fun and get exposure to these games for fantasy is...

Not as exciting of a slate as last night, at least on paper. And probably the diciest group of value plays we have seen in a long while. But that’s okay because the only guy priced over 10k on today’s seven-game slate is Russell Westbrook so we can play around in the mid- to high-range with our lineup builds.

A rather calm slate for a Friday with only eight games and just a few weeks to go in the regular season. Three of our sixteen teams tonight have already been eliminated from playoff contention (Knicks, Bulls, Suns) with a few others not far behind (Lakers, Pelicans, Mavericks).

The nearly decade-old commercial that the NBA is faNtastic couldn’t be ever more apropos than it is today. The league has been incredibly fun to follow and DFS has helped pull in countless new hoops fans. As far as DFS sports are concerned (at least per my opinion), there is no more fun game to enter lineups and follow. Over the last few weeks, that enjoyment has been multiplied as we’ve seen some truly awful teams rack up some super high totals, and that has produced some monster scores for our purposes. Tonight, it continues. Of the eight games on this slate, only two have a total under 220 and four of them have totals greater than 230!

We had that lovely taste of NBA DFS returning to action last night and I hope you rode the Boban Train with me and smoked that Tyler J as a cheap, value play. Really digging this nine-game slate to end our work week though it’s an entirely different ballgame with less high-priced guys to work with (instead of Harden, Giannis, LeBron, Curry, Durant we have Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Karl-Anthony Towns and Nikola Jokic). Similar to my builds for Thursday’s five-game slate, I like the idea of building for more balance tonight as I love some of the options in the price tier below ($7k to $10k).
