FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (4/17) PREMIUM
Lineups lock early today with both the Boston @ New York and Cleveland @ Seattle games included in the early slate. Make sure to check lineups before the 6:35 PM ET deadline today.
With four early afternoon games, we have 20 teams to work with when building our lineups today. A PPD seems likely in Minnesota’s game against Toronto so for cash games, I’m recommending you avoid those teams altogether.
We kept the now six-slate streak of cashing alive yesterday thanks to Scott Kingery‘s magic. I love how today’s slate lines up with three exceptional value bats which enables us to spend up on a few of the top plays of the day. I don’t love the GPP stacking options today so I will be spending 100% of my investment on cash games. Regardless, I’ll list my favorite stacks and starting pitchers, as always, for those of you hoping to take down the big GPP prize. The primary focus of my Tuesday and Wednesday articles, however, will be on winning double-ups and 50/50s.
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 expected to bat near the end of the order but turns up in the heart of the order, then don’t hesitate to get him plugged in if you are fond of his matchup. Most importantly, don’t get cute. Just play to win, period.
