A summary of everything discussed on tonight’s MLB NOW Livestream!
The MLB Summary will be updated LIVE during the livestream, but you’ll need to refresh the page to see the changes!
UGLY slate, especially at SP. Most will probably just load up on COL/ARI bats and use whichever SPs fit.
Greinke is really the only top-tier guy on the slate and is definitely the elite option, but his game has a serious weather threat.
There is a way to pivot off Greinke on DK if the game is PPD, as Lucchesi is pretty expensive, has a later start than Greinke, and can fill that spot.
ERodriguez is the expensive guy right below Greinke, but he’s in a tough spot v CLE. LHB hit him well, and CLE has several RHB who are good against LHP. On a 12+ game slate he’d be an easy fade, but with so few options tonight he is still in play.
Pruitt (TB reliever) is one of DC’s favorite targets on DK. Castillo will be opening for him. He may only get 8-10 DK points, but that is absolutely fine with DC given the crap SP on the slate.
Lucchesi is expensive on DK, probably too expensive to use (unless he’s your late swap off Greinke), but is great on FD at 7600. Will probably be the chalkiest guy on FD.
Suarez is the other main target (if you can’t play Greinke) with Lucchesi. Has a good price on both sites and a decent MU w/ PIT. Not extremely safe, but a good enough price he’s a solid choice.
If the HOU/CHW game plays, HOU will definitely be an elite stack. Every guy in the LU is playable.
NYY are probably the #2 choice, especially the 1-5 guys.
CIN is a little sneaky, but gives you good salary saving if you are trying to use Greinke.
ARI and COL are both completely in play, DC and Benny give a slight edge to ARI.
LAA could be an under-the-radar team who goes off, but Benny prefers playing 1-2 of them to completely stacking them. DC likes 1-4.
