Top Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball plays for Friday, May 22

Well, I hope you heeded my advice and got a couple doses of Kyle Hendricks into your lineup. He went huge for 40 fantasy points.

Pairing him with either Teheran or Salazar gave us a nice base to work from. Unfortunately my hitters didn’t pan out almost across the board yesterday.

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Thursday, May 21

Imagine the kind of trouble our lineups would have gotten into if Bryce “Crash” Harper would have called the umpire sir instead of the one thing you should never call an umpire.

He dropped a goose egg on our super contrarian lineups (I’m still not sure what to call it. Leave a comment if you have any ideas). Oh, well. I was still happy with the results. The two contrarian pitcher theory worked out pretty well. We got 20.95 from Joe Kelly, 18.65 from Shane Greene and 17.9 from Mike Pelfrey.

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Tuesday, May 12

Today got off the rails fast. I’m not going to have time to do the extensive research I normally do.

I’m going to make a lot of decisions based on instinct and try to back them up with facts.

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Monday, May 11

Yesterday’s predictions paid off. There was no tournament win, but if you do well enough to cash in a tournament every day, you’re going to do pretty well for yourself.

Yesterday I was a bit constrained because of the early slate. Today I’m a bit constrained because of work. But I have changed up the formula a bit and I can’t wait to see what a few weeks of this style of ranking will produce. It’s not nearly as time consuming as the original formula but it appears to be better than the low-maintenance style I went with for a while.
