1. The Daily Overlay DK Contest
Join our contest running on Tuesday’s and Friday’s all season long! Take the money of Justin Mason, Paul Sporer and other fantasy analysts in this fun contest! Next season we will make a DFS League if there is interest.

Congrats to Jaystellmach for taking down Tueday’s contest!


2. Casual Weather
TB at ATL- There is a 45% chance of rain in Atlanta, but it sounds like it is likely to play with a possible delay for first pitch.

KC at DET- There is a slight chance of rain in Detroit, but it seems pretty safe.


3. Favorite Stacks
Left-handed Yankees versus Asher Wojciechowski – Feels like I have had the opportunity to make a Wojlskjndvkjnfiuvbd joke, but it seems too easy.

Right-handed Tigers versus Danny Duffy – Duffy has struggled with the long ball his last two seasons and the Tigers have the power to take advantage.

Left-handed Angels versus Justin Dunn – I like Dunn for potential future value, but not against this Angels offense.


4. Favorite Hitting Plays
Catcher (Expensive) Jason Castro vs SEA
Catcher (Punt/Value): Sal Perez vs DET – Still don’t understand why his price is this low.

1B (Expensive): Shohei Ohtani vs SEA
1B (Punt/Value): CJ Cron at KC – Already has two bombs and gets a nice matchup here versus the Royals. Also consider Miguel Cabrera.

2B (Expensive): Keston Huira vs PIT
2B (Punt/Value): Jonathan Schoop vs KC – Recommended him yesterday here and doubling it up. Also consider Jose Peraza.

3B (Expensive): Anthony Rendon vs SEA
3B (Punt/Value): Maikel Franco vs DET – Franco is facing lefty Matt Boyd who struggled in his first start and is only $2,000 on DK which is insanely low. Also consider Eric Sogard.

SS (Expensive): Fernando Tatis vs SF
SS (Punt/Value): Aldaberto Mondesi – Mondesi has a ton of upside and he has to wake up sometime. I am just going to keep running him out there at these prices. Also consider Elvis Andrus.

OF (Expensive): Mike Trout vs SEA, Ronald Acuna vs TB, Michael Conforto vs BOS
OF (Punt/Value): Jorge Soler – I don’t know why Soler is priced this low, but I will take it. Also Consider Cameron Maybin vs KC, Brandon Nimmo vs BOS, Michael Brantley vs LAD, Justin Upton vs SEA


5. Favorite Pitching Plays
Cash Games: Jacob deGrom vs BOS, Gerrit Cole at BAL, Charlie Morton vs ATL, Chris Paddack vs SF, Andrew Heaney vs SEA,

Tournament: Chris Paddack vs SF, Matt Boyd vs KC, Andrew Heaney vs SEA, Nathan Eovaldi at NYM

Contrarian Plays: Joe Musgrove at PIT
