This article is strictly for tournaments and how I will be looking to navigate large field or High Stakes tournaments. If you are looking for chalky picks, you are in the wrong place.
Attacking GPP with Paulie D
Great 10 game slate tonight, right in the 7-10 game slate size that I prefer. For some reason FanDuel pricing is extremely soft once again, that you get any bat you want. This will make the value players very contrarian and I recommend a super Stars and Scrubs approach or playing on DraftKings where the pricing is more in line with what it should be. On slates of this size I like to full stack one team and either 4 one offs of 4-2-1-1. There are a few candidates for the team to fill the four- man stack, but I would be sure to stick with one of my stacks listed below as your core.
P – Darvish, Matz, Carlos Martinez – DK large field tourney SP2 – Stewart, Blackburn
C – McCann (Det) Phegley, Rupp
1B – Bellinger, Hosmer, Gallo, E5
2B – Merrifield, Odor, Forsythe
3B –Turner, Castellanos, Healy
SS – Russell, Seager, Lindor
OF – Khris Davis (Top Play on Slate), Harper, Heyward, Zobrist, Moss, C. Taylor, Upton, Blash, Zimmer, Brantley
Top Stacks – Dodgers, Cubs, Tigers, Oakland, Cleveland, Royals
Pitchers to Pick on – Ian Kennedy, A. Sanchez, E. Santana, Estrada
I really like Darvish in a spot I think he will be lower owned versus a team that does not K very much. Sticking with a 4 man core stack from one of my stacks listed above and then going with four one offs with a stars and scrubs approach will guarantee differentiation.
