Tonight I am all about punching my ticket for the DraftKings Fantasy Baseball Championship. The sixth qualifier runs tonight and I have two of the 75 possible entries locked in and ready to go. Thus I am making things real simpel tonight and only inculding values for DraftKings and Fanduel. 

If you are playing against me in this then I strongly suggest you stop reading right now because what follows will blow your mind. For the rest of you who are just trying to win your double ups and make some easy cash tonight I present to you the Daily Fantasy Baseball Playbook for Saturday April 26th. If you have questions, comments or strategies you wish to discuss leave your comments below or feel free to Tweet me @Jeff_Mans.

Kory, these were posted Saturday around noon and updated again just two hours before the late games started. Because of the sensitivity of this info it really isn't logical to have it posted before the latest news/lineups/weather come out. Follow me on Twitter @Jeff_Mans for the exact moment the article is posted each day. Thanks for the feedback!

Kory dumond 

wish we could get these on the day we make the picks, not the day after, doesn't really do much good then...

@mBacc9 Your fault for drafting him

@mBacc9 Then why did you draft him?? I have ZERO shares of Eddie Lacy this year and he wasn't in my first round overall rankings.

@mBacc9 My ranking didn't cost you shit. Eddie Lacy cost all of us. The Packers entire offense was miserable...blame them!!

The #Dolphins are averaging over 7 YPC on the ground and run 2 straight passing plays with 1 yard to go for a first down

I love how the officials had to huddle up to see whether or not that was a safety. LYNCH WAS NEVER OUT OF THE ENDZONE!! Hilarious...
