DFS is a mental grind sometimes, right? Sometimes you feel you have it all figured out then you have a bad week and you are questioning everything you are doing. Well, you are not alone my friends. It happens to just about everybody unless you are somehow from the future and already know all the mysteries of the world and then you probably wouldn’t be wasting your time with us DFS degenerates now, would you? Yea up and down week for myself, there were some weird games and calls this week as I just finished watching the Phillies and Mets Sunday Night and oh boy did the Phillies look terrible and somehow almost pulled it out. I mean having a three-run home run taken away on a replay call that’s got to be about the worst but then again some of their defensive plays and not paying attention to runners running home really served them right didn’t it. Anyway, it’s a loooooong season guys take a day or two off if you need for mental health, and sometimes that helps in getting things back on track. Stay the course and keep grinding it out. You put the work in you will get results. You will find your rhythm and get back on the winning side of things in no time.

Hey Hey Hey, Welcome and Thank You for starting your week out and dropping by to get some valuable fantasy DFS info to fill up your coffers. I’m sure you have been hitting on a few of those hidden gems (shout out to Brandon Nimmo and Austin Hays this weekend). I can say since starting this article writing once a week it sure has made me a better fantasy DFS player for sure. The more you watch games take a few notes do a little dive into some numbers and genuinely do your homework on players it will benefit you immensely. April has brought a lot of cold weather which resulted in plenty of low-scoring games (6 shutouts on Sunday). Be careful if you are stacking players you are choosing beneficial games to you and taking into account the weather. I for one have not made full stacking a must-have in my lineups but instead have used 3/2/2 stacks to give me an opportunity to hit on a nice low owned 1 off which has made the difference in a few of my slates.

Welcome back everybody! I hope your week was awesome and you were able to cash a few bucks and maybe even take down a tournament or two this week. How about those lesser-owned players right? Vogelbach was huge on Sunday and was in the winning lineups on quite a few tournaments I saw, I hope you had him yesterday if you played. It’s a six-game main slate today so stacking is going to be the play. The trick is going to be getting to that lesser owned stack than everybody else is going to be on so I’ll go give my insight on that a little later.

Based on my title above you probably figured out who my target pitcher is and that’s indeed the Duffster. Danny Duffy ($8,300) will face the Rays on Monday who although their record is 8-8 and coming off a sweep against the Yankees didn’t look that special and a lot of that seemed to be on the Yankees not playing well defensively and shooting themselves in the foot rather than the Rays playing great. I think there will be a letdown in the Rays going on the road to Kansas City and having to face a hard-throwing lefty such as Duffy. Duffy is 2-0 and has only allowed 1 ER in both of his starts against the Angels and Indians respectively. Duffy is limiting hard contact as his hard hit% and barrel % look good so far and he has faced some good right-handed lineups in the Angels and Indians batting order and has shut them both down. Duffy has a four-pitch mix and commands the ball well similar to Carlos Rodon’s profile who I mentioned here last Monday (Start moved to Wed due to illness) and we saw what Rodon was able to do against the Indians. I don’t think Duffy will quite live up to Rodon’s start obviously but I do think he will be successful in limiting the Rays to weak contact hits and won’t hurt you in the BB department. I think Duffy’s floor is 6 IP 3 Hits 2 BB 7 K 1 ER which is what you need on a limited slate today.

Hey there! Thank you for returning after my inaugural debut here on Razzball and hope this week you got your bankrolls a little more plentiful. I bet if that’s the case you had to decide to start a lesser owned player or two that wasn’t getting the “buzz” before the games that day on Twitter or some of the other DFS sites you frequent and you went your own way. Well good for you! I hope you have learned by now you have to do that to gain that edge on the other players out there that are also waking up at 7:00 in the morning to do their research on the day’s games as well. Finding those diamonds in the roughs and those forgotten guys are must haves in your lineups these days. The days of getting your lineup in 10 minutes before the start of the games are not working out for the most part I’m sure for you. You need to be watching these games yourself and put in the time to do your own research and get familiar with all the terms that are out there in evaluating players these days. This week I’m going to focus on hitting on some of those lesser owned guys that most likely won’t be targeted but you want to have in your lineup. Now this being said, you are going to have to roster players that are going to be heavily owned to get that floor for your team but there are always going to be one or two players that are in the winning lineups that hardly anyone has, that’s the difference between you cashing and not.

Welcome to one of the busiest Monday slates of the year as almost every team is playing today We are nearing the end of the rotation at the start of the week which usually lends itself to you having to ponder whether you really want to put Julio Teheran (Yuk!) or Trevor Williams (Oh Boy) in your lineup in order to get to that juicy Dodger stack. Luckily for us, the COVID gods have spoken, and deemed us not worthy enough to have watched a great opening day matchup between Jacob deGrom ($11,000) and Max Scherzer. The fallout from that being we get to put him in our lineup today! Now how fun is that right? DeGrom looked fantastic this spring mixing his 4 pitches like a puppet master pitching 13 innings and only allowing 1 ER while striking out 21. Although Spring Training games mean very little he did face the Astro regulars three times. DeGrom brings a 38.8% strikeout rate from last year and only seems to be getting better with age. He faces a good Philadelphia Phillies lineup tonight but a lineup that is prone to strikeouts which is just up DeGrom’s alley. In an uncanny weirdness to the schedule, he has only started a game against the Phillies 1 game out of the last 28 game he has started going back to last season. Start him with extreme confidence no reason to get cute here.
