Attacking GPP w/ @PaulieDDDDDDDD – 8.5.17


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 w/ Paulie D

Nice 12 game slate today. Tons of great pitching options a few elite hitting options to choose from. Today I would build a core of 5 bats like a 3×2 stack core and rotate the pitching and remaining 3 bats through 3-5 teams.  As always on large slates I favor a 3x3x2 or 2x2x2x2 approach.

P – Castillo, Pomeranz, Salazar, Gray

C –   Suzuki, McCann, H Sanchez

1B – Reynolds, Votto, C Davis

2B – Gennett, Lowrie, Schoop

3B – Arenado, Bregman, Valbuena

SS –   Valaika, Beckham, Andrus

OF –  Carlos Gonzalez (top play of the Month…. Get used to this…), JD Martinez, B. Hamilton, A jones, C Young, Choo, Parra, Blackmon, Ozuna, Broxton, Williams, K. Davis


Top Stacks –  Rockies, Orioles, Reds


Pitchers to Attack –  Verhagen, Pivetta, Lynn


I think Gerrit Cole will be chalk tonight and in tournaments he is a fade for me. The padres have sneakily become one of the top power hitting teams since the break and Cole does have the blow up about once every 5 starts or so. For the bats I will be going to Baltimore and the Reds mainly with Cargo and JD one offs.


Good Luck
