The winner of the six game slate at night had 71 points and stacked four Mets along with Jim Ross to win all the money.
The top three winners all had a different combination of a Mets stack. Is stacking the way to go? It is apparently if you want to win a GPP tourney on FanDuel!
I lost money with my LUs even though I had Joe Ross or Gerritt Cole as my pitchers.
Cruz was 5000, Harper and Cutch were both 4900 and they were my three outfielders and they ended up with 0, 2.75, and 3.75 points.
It's probably not wise to pick the three most expensive OFs and expect them to all hit homers in the same night.
I had a Cardinals stack which won me $5 but none of their hitters did all that great against De la Rosa in Arizona.
The five-game morning GPP tourney had five games and most of them were very low-scoring until the last game in San Francisco.
The first place winner had 61 points and had Greinke with 20 points and of course Kelby Tomlinson with 10.5 points. Kelby was only owned by 2% in the GPP while Chase Utley at 2300 was owned by
a whopping 41%! Utley only had 2.75 points!
So the 2nd place winner had Smoak and Martin of the Blue Jays and they gave him 0 points since they didn't start or play against the Rangers. This winner was still about to win $1000 and 2nd place!
I was in 83rd place and won $20 in one LU and won $67 overall.
My regrets are taking Grandal with -1 point after being rusty and coming off the DL, taking Will Veneable at 2900 over Delino Deshields, making a LU with Trout, Bautista, and Donaldson and once again, it doesn't work as they all struggled, and not taking a flyer on a guy like Paulo Orlando who hit a homer.
Orlando hit a homer off flyball pitcher Chris Tillman while I had someone like Shane Victorino who did nothing.
I also regret not having a giants stack with Tomlinson or Aoki even though I knew that Dan Haren was a bad pitcher.
Ended up ranked 127th and winning 25 bucks with Vogelsong with 15 points as my pitcher.
Had 63.75 points and stacked 3 Nats on the road against the Rockies but regret not taking Schwwerber over Posey as my catcher as Scherber hit a homer and had 9 points while Posey had 0.
Winner had 77 points and stacked 4 Tigers and 3 Nats.
Early slate had five games. Winner picked a roster from only two games. He picked Holland of Texas as his pitcher and had 3 Rangers' hitters and 5 hitters from the Marlins/Brewers game which ended up with a score of 8-7.
Winner had a roster with De la Rosa with 12 points as his pitcher and stacked hitters from the Tigers and Cubs even though Jon Lester was pitching for the Cubs. He also had two hitters from the Astros. With DE la rosa only at 6400, he had space to get quality hitters.
Won $60 by being ranked in 50th place with 79 points and the winner had 90.
Winner had Eickhoff at 3000 with 15 points and had a Rockies Stack as well as Cespedes with 28 points. Cespedes was 4900 so he was only 4% owned.
I had Flores at 5000 instead of Eickhoff and he was owned by 2% of the crowd. Eickohff was owned by 8%.
Winner had 84 points and Verrett as his SP and he was owned by a mere 1.4%! Only $3000 too!
Verrett struck out 8 Rockies and had 19 points. The winner had Grandal as his catcher and Grandal did not even play.
Winner had 93 points with a combination of hitters from The Astros and Indians. THe Aastros had 15 runs and the Indians had 11.
8/27 Recap Early slate with 5 games
Winner had 61 points with Greinke as his pitcher with 20 points. Kelby Tomlinson sealed his win with a grand slam and had 10.5 points and was 2.6% owned. Most DFS players had Chase Utley as their 2B.
His OFs were all cheap and were $2400 and two Giants were $2500 in Byrd (9.5 points and a homer off Haren) and Aoki (6.5 points). Ethier was his other OF. Aoki and byrd were owned by 11% and 5% respectively.
2nd place winner had two Blue Jays who had 0 points since they didn't start or play! He had Delino Deshields Jr. with 7 points and only was 3% owned.
Puig was cheap at 2700 and was 30% owned but only had 1 point.
8/29 Recap with 3 games
Winner had 63 points with DeGrom as his pitcher and he was 40% owned.
The top winners all had Kevin Kiermaier on their team and he had 9 points thanks to a homer. $2600 and 4.9% owned.
Winner had 91 points on a full slate of games and the Yankees scored 20 runs off Atlanta so he had a Yankees stack.
8/31 Monday night late night 3 games Recap
Winner had 61 points and 48% Tyson Ross led the way. Posey was 64% owned and had 3.25 points.
Mike Trout was 80% owned and had 1 point! Mark Canha was 8% owned and had 10.5 points and a homer off a reliever.
I didn't have Canha because his stats showed he doesn't hit well vs. lefties but Santiago left early and the Angels' reliever gave up the homer.
I had Jake Peavy and Colby Lewis as my pitchers but those guys just don't last long and they don't strike out enough hitters.
9/2 3 game early slate
I had 61 points and was ranked 228th but the winner had 73.75 points and had Heaney with 14 points as his pitcher. Sonny Gray got rocked against the Angels.
I had Jason Hammel with 5 points as my pitcher in some LUs and he just doesn't strike out enough guys to warrant a start. Raisel Iglesias was a better pitcher to start since he has better pure stuff and strikes out guys.
Chris Coughlan was 33% owned at 2B and had 0.25 points and Stephen Drew was 11% owned and had 11 points.
The Yankees and Red Sox game ended up 13-8.
