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..
Have no fear of black-lung, no lonesome Cowboy Junkies song mentioning silicosis. Instead you can grill without care for carcinogens and feast on the red meat of victory with Gerrit Cole. Mr. Cole is pitching like a Cy Young candidate this year with a record of 5-1, 1.86 ERA, and leading the league with 101 strikeouts. He’s facing the Indians in Cleveland who are only a .500 team despite leading their division. Chris Sale is tempting, but there’s a few Braves who hit him; the same with Strasburg in Miami. Tag Gerrit Cole with a first-round pick and celebrate Memorial Day in style. Let’s look at a few more early-, middle- and late-round picks for your Draft…drafts!

Yu Darvish, SP: Middle – Yu-San is starting to round into form as the summer weather arrives and he gets to face the Giants at the cozy confines of Wrigley, where he’s striking out a ton of guys. Collectively, the current Giants roster hits him to a paltry .381 OPS and his team is projected to score a lot of runs. We’re ordering Japanese barbecue in Chicago today.
Walker Buehler, SP: Middle – This rookie phenom is streaking across the league and takes on the Padres at home today. He’s a rookie, so of course there’s risk, but he’s on fire and facing a weak lineup.
Joey Votto, IF: Early – Votto has begun to really ramp it up and gets to travel to Colorado, where he’s hit .353 with a 1.082 OPS in his career. His victim today is young right-hander German Marquez. Votto will be grilling up some Colorado beef with all the fixins on this fine Memorial Day.
Carlos Santana, HIT: Middle – Santana is another one heating up lately, and he hammers today’s Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ to a .328 batting average and .928 OPS. Santana will set off the fireworks in the city of brotherly love on this holiday.
Evan Gattis, HIT: Late – Trevor Bauer has gotten over his drone mishaps, but it doesn’t change Gattis’s domination of him: 2 home runs in 9 at-bats. Just the kind of gem you look to grab in the late rounds.
Michael Conforto, HIT: Late – This Mets basher is getting some better spots in the lineup with Cespedes still on the DL, and it couldn’t come at a better time. He hits today’s opponent, Jhoulys Chacin of the Brewers, to the tune of a .417 batting average and 1.167 OPS. Grab him late and coax that strange big red apple from the bowels of Citi Field.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
There’s a chance of some rain for the Red Sox and Braves in Boston, the Angels and Yankees in New York, and the Blue Jays and Phillies in Philadelphia. There’s thunderstorms forecast for the Cardinals and Pirates in Pittsburgh. Keep an eye on those situations. Otherwise it’s going to be a beautiful day for barbecue all over this great land. And as you can probably tell by those projected runs scored numbers below, the wind is blowing out in Colorado for the Rockies vs the Reds.
