They call Draft fantasy for the people, and why not? It’s easy as Sunday morning. Sign up at Draft.com, do a quick snake draft of 3, 4, 6 or 10 players, and get a piece of the payouts. Here at Razzball, we recommend using Value-Based Drafting (VBD) to make the most of your roster. Using Rudy’s tools, you can easily sort values and take the projected points for the final player drafted at each position (P, IF, OF) and subtracting from all the players at that position, then re-ranking based on VBD. In other words, Razzball will give you the inside knowledge you need to dominate your DFS opponents.

When it comes to paying taxes, less is more. When it comes to kids’ toys by the time they’re 10 years old and it’s been piling up? Less is more. If you listen to Emma Watson when it comes to a certain something, less is more.  And when it comes to the Chicago Cubs playing against a depleted New York Mets team, Jon Lester is more.  Lester can’t throw to first base, but he sure can pitch.  This experienced lefty is the best bet for an A+ start today against a team that hits him to a paltry .223 average.  Now let’s look at a few more early-, middle- and late-round picks for your Draft…drafts!

Tyler Skaggs, SP: Middle – He’s facing the Texas Rangers, who come in struggling in the AL West, and he’s a great middle-round pick for someone looking to load up on hitting.

Michael Fulmer, SP: Late – This former Rookie Of The Year is having a decent year and gets the struggling Toronto Blue Jays today.  They’ve hit him to only a .152 average and he has a chance to produce big from a very deep draft spot.

Justin Turner, IF: Early – The Dodgers play in Colorado today and one major beneficiary is one Mr. Turner.  He destroys Chad Bettis of the Rockies, to the tune of a .500 average and 1.167 OPS in any location, and this time it’s in the hitters’ haven of Coors Field.

Bryce Harper, OF: Early – Don’t look now but the forgotten man in this year’s early MVP talk is beginning to hit and hit big. He’s hammering the ball and today gets to face Anibal Sanchez, whom he destroys with a career 1.309 OPS.

Edwin Encarnacion, IF: Middle – Another guy heating up with the weather, and he gets poor Kyle Gibson of the Twins today. Young Kyle gives up a .353 average and 1.419 OPS to the linchpin of the Indians’ lineup.

Carlos Gomez, OF: Middle – He doesn’t need PEDs to take Felix Hernandez to the woodshed. In his career, Gomez has hit King Felix to a .353 average and 1.182 OPS.

Yan Gomes, IF: Late – He’s the first Brazilian player in the majors, but that’s not his only claim to fame. He’s also hit Kyle Gibson to a .500 average and 1.405 OPS in 22 at-bats.

Matt Kemp, OF: Late – Another Dodger in Coors field today; he hits Chad Bettis to a .294 average and .824 OPS.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

It’s windy and rainy in Baltimore for the Orioles and Yankees, and there’s a chance of a thunderstorm in Atlanta for the Nationals and Braves, so keep an eye on those.
