2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Tuesday, May 5

Today is the second of what I expect to be three consecutive 12-hour (at least) work days, so I have limited time.

As I normally do in this situation, I’m going to give you a couple questionable lineups that I threw together without much (any) research.

But first, let’s talk about some general stuff.

I feel like paying for Stephen Strasburg and Zack Greinke is the right thing to do today. I’m not liking many of the other pitcher options, but without doing my research this is all speculation and my opinion. To start both you have to roster some questionable bats.

One thing that’s not speculation: Get you some Pirates, even a Pirate stack. Cincinnati is throwing Michael Lorenzen out there. Lorenzen gave up three homers and eight hits in his debut. His 5.40 ERA was helped by those homers all coming with the bases empty. Lorenzen is a righty, so lefty bats 1B/3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Gregory Polanco and switch-hitter 2B Neil Walker need to be strongly considered.

Here are my questionable lineups for today:

Regular games ($100 left)

P Zack Greinke P 22.2 swap out
P S. Strasburg P 15.0 swap out
C Miguel Montero 6.5 swap out
1B Pedro Alvarez 6.8 swap out
2B Neil Walker 6.1 swap out
3B Josh Harrison 5.2 swap out
SS Asdrubal Cabrera 4.7 swap out
OF Andre Ethier 7.0 swap out
OF Gregory Polanco 8.2 swap out
OF Jake Smolinski 4.0 swap out

Late games ($0 left)

P Andrew Cashner P 17.1 swap out
P Garrett Richards P 17.1 swap out
C Buster Posey 6.5 swap out
1B Brandon Belt 4.1 swap out
2B Joe Panik 6.2 swap out
3B David Freese 7.2 swap out
SS Brandon Crawford 7.1 swap out
OF Nelson Cruz 12.3 swap out
OF Justin Maxwell 5.7 swap out
OF Mike Trout 10.7 swap out

The Pirates stack ($100 left)

P Zack Greinke P 22.2 swap out
P S. Strasburg P 15.0 swap out
C Caleb Joseph 7.3 swap out
1B Pedro Alvarez 6.8 swap out

3B Josh Harrison 5.2 swap out
