Happy Cinco De Mayo everybody!! I hope everybody is celebrating safely and not getting too inebriated to set their daily fantasy baseball lineups tonight. If you didn't use the Playbook on Friday night, you missed a huge opportunity as guys like Dustin Pedroia and Desmond Jennings carried all who followed to DFS glory. I was within a single point of securing a spot in the Fanduel DFBC qualifier but neither Alex Rios or Desmond Jennings could get me over the hump. I wound up in fourth place taking home $300 for my single $10 entry. It sucks being that close and not punch my ticket but between that $300 and the other $800 of winnings in cash games it was a very profitable night. 

Enough about last week though, let's get the lineups in that will help you guys win TONGIHT in Daily Fantasy Baseball. Here is the DFS Playbook for Monday, May 5th.

@fantasyguy1234 Well T-Rich is consistently average and he's gotten a ton of carries because Colts offense has run the most plays in the NFL

@fantasyguy1234 If you have to drop 1 I would say get rid of T-Rich. Vereen is the best of that group right now
