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
Awesome 15 game slate tonight, filled with great pitcher at the top and the low end, and tons of bats to choose from. This would be a slate I would recommend making a few more teams than normal. On these large slates, I always recommend diversity in the lineup and never using a 4×4 stack. 3x2x2x1 or 2x2x2x2 is the optimal approach.
P – Wood, Wacha, Kuhl, Romano, Garcia
C – Sanchez, Suzuki, Rupp
1B – C Davis, Duda, Abreau, Adams, Bellinger
2B – Miller, Baez, Altuve, Merrifield
3B – Shaw, Machado, Beltre, Devers, Freeman (Top Play on Slate)
SS – Russel, Didi, Dejong, Lindor
OF – Almora, Pham, Judge, Gardner, C Frazier, Seth Smith, Dickerson, Kiki, C. Taylor
Top Stacks – Yankees, Tampa Bay, Dodgers, Orioles, Seattle
Pitchers to Pick on – Holland, Hellickson, Tanaka, Pruitt
I really like the Yankees/Tampa game stack tonight, both these teams are fighting for the division and wild card and have tons of power against pitchers that like to give up the long ball. I also think the dodgers and mariners will be low owned stacks that will pay off big. Finally, I love the Braves to go off against Hellickson and will have my player pool spread between the best hitters and matchups from those 5 teams.
