All good things must come to an end. Thursday was a slate I did not like from the moment I set eyes on it. After being on fire, I decided to pull back a bit which was very wise. My DraftKings lineups was obliterated and while I did have a Mets stack, otherwise the night was a loss. On FanDuel, I actually pulled out a winning night as my Brewers mini-stack along with Bumgarner scored 140 and cashed the GPP’s. Over all, I am pleased that I was able to minimize the damage.


Tonight, we have a 13 game evening slate with plenty of big prize pool GPP’s. This lineup is on DK, but I have a very similar version on FanDuel. Both are listed below. The hardest decision was with pitching. Fading Kershaw is always tough but at $13.5K, I had too many big bats I wanted to play, to spend that much cash. I will use him, but not in the main. Cueto at $11.6K was intriguing, but some Rockies have decent BVP stats against him. I landed first on Syndergaard against Miami. He has a .260 average against with 28K’s in just 73 AB’s against the Marlins. I considered Keuchel and Porcello for the 2nd spot, but I needed value. I landed on Adam Conley who is facing Syndergaard. He has dominated the Mets with a .200 average against and 18K’s in 70 AB’s against the lefty heavy NY squad. Conley was only $6.3K which game me a total of $17.9K being used on pitching which is right where I like to be. Lets just hope the Mets and Marlins used up all their runs in last night’s game.

I had to decide whether I wanted to plays some stacks or just players with great potential and solid BVP numbers. While I tried to get some parings, I ended up with just individual plays. At Catcher, I went with Gattis who is 3 for 11 with 2 HR’s against Graveman. At 1B, I liked Davis a ton, but since he was OF eligible, I went with Valencia at 1B as he is 5 for 16 with 1 HR and a .471 OBP against Keuchel. I used Davis in the OF with his 6 for 16, 3 HR’s, and .600 OBP against Sanchez. At 2B, Starling Castro has crushed Wacha going 10 for 22 with 2 HR’s and a .478 OBP. I finished the infield with a pair of Seagers. Corey is at SS against Grienke going 5 for 8 with 2 HR’s and a .700 OBP and Kyle dominates Perez going 12 for 30 with 4 HR’s and a .438 OBP. My last 2 spots went to my mainstay Mike Trout who is 4 for 9 with 1 HR against Duffy and Corey Dickerson who is a sweet value play at $3.6K against Porcello batting 7 for 19 with 1 HR. This is a dynamic lineup that should put up 100 points themselves with pitching as the icing on top.

For FanDuel, I had to make a few changes due to the pricing. I stuck with Syndergaard as the lone pitcher, but had to replace Trout and Davis with Betts at only $3.8K who is 8 for 23 with 2HR’s and a .500 OBP against Archer and Parra who was only $2.7K against Cueto but has done well going 14 for 38 with 2 HR’s and a .415 OBP against the Giants ace.



I am not sure how deep I will go tonight, but I do like seven teams for stacks including the Yankees, Tigers, Padres, Dodgers, Mariners, Reds, and Indians and I might have to consider a hedge stack of Miami and the Mets for sanity purposes. I will post a few of my favorites tonight on twitter @CHRISBOUCHARD88. Good Luck!
