In this article I will write up the pitchers and stacks I am considering for GPPs. I typically only play one line-up and enter it into the amount of contests I want to play for the night, needless to say my player pools are fairly narrow.
To be clear I will not post my actual lineup as not only is it against policy, but because I only do one line-up I usually don’t make my final decisions until minutes before the first game starts. I do however have a pool in mind of pitchers and stacks that I am interested in and that is what I will be sharing.
These posts are to help you now, but after reading them consistently my hope is that it helps in the future as well.
Single Bullet Plays by @CK_013 – 6/26/17
I would imagine on a short slate with only a couple pitchers at the top, it should be safe to assume the chalk line-up build will be to play Sale and cheap bats.
Pitchers: Cheaper Options
Gio Gonzalez ($8,800 FD – $9,800 DK ) – Gio plays a lot better at home. His wOBA is lower and his K/9 is significantly higher at home. The Cubs have a lot of power from the right side so this play is risky, however they do strikeout so there is upside. I expect fairly low ownership on both sites.
Jordan Montgomery ($8,000 FD – $7,800 DK) – It’s no secret that the White Sox have been red hot and they mash lefties. It’s also no secret they do strikeout a bunch and Montgomery is sporting a double-digit swinging strike rate. Montgomery pitches in Yankee Stadium so he is no stranger to small ball parks. This play carries huge risk
Nationals – The Nationals are expensive so I expect most the field to be unable to afford a lot of these guys like Trea Turner, Daniel Murhpy, and Bryce Harper. They are a very good offense and may step it up against the defending World Champions. Not to mention Gio gets a crap ton of run support for some reason.
Rangers – The Rangers have a very low implied projected run total by Vegas. I am not one to go against Vegas but on a six game slate you have to take chances in GPPs, and sometimes the lines are more about public perception than numbers.
The Rangers have been hot and Carrasco has done significantly better on the road than at home over the last two years. I expect Carrasco to get some K’s but he is also sporting a .395 road wOBA to Lefties.
