FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (5/16) PREMIUM
Tonight’s slate is a challenging one. We almost have to pay up for pitchers with three aces on the slate all costing at least $11,000. There are also only five games to work with, and with three of the ten lineups opposing aces, you’ll imagine that there isn’t much in the way of quality lineup value plays. I ended up liking how my cash game roster turned out considering everything, so let’s take a look at it.
I tell myself the same thing every day when I build a lineup. This is your weekly reminder as well: “Don’t be an idiot”
It is simple, but entirely necessary. This is your hard earned cash, and you don’t have to throw it away. Think out your player selection and make the single smartest lineup you can put together. That includes watching as starting lineups roll in before lock. If a player you loved is batting 7th instead of 2nd like you were anticipating, maybe rethink things. If the opposite is true and there is a player you like, but expected to bat near the end of the order, turns up in the heart of the order, then don’t hesitate to get him plugged in. Most importantly, don’t get cute. Just play to win, period.
As always, be sure to pay close attention to the lineups when they are released and monitor the weather leading up to game time.
