In hindsight I should have posted a Playbook for the earlier games today as well since there were nine games with a start time of 4 PM ET or earlier. Instead, let's focus on the six night games that are taking place on this Saturday night. Although there aren't a ton of big tournaments for tonight's games there are plenty of 50/50's available to increase your bankroll. Both Fantasy Aces and Fanduel have announced big survivor tournaments for Monday night. Thus, it would be wise to pad your bankroll this weekend in order to afford yourself as many entries into those big cash tournaments as possible.

For tonight's DFS Playbook I have enlisted the help of my SiriusXM Radio Co-Host Ted Schuster. Ted is hot on the Padres and Astros bats tonight which sounds laughable on the service unless you realize his value play track record over the last couple of months. The biggest decision you'll make tonight is whether to play or fade Stephen Strasburg. He is on the road but going up against one of the biggest disappointments this season in the Pittsburgh Pirates. It should also be noted that the Astros made a last minute switch for their starting pitcher tonight pushing Dallas Keuchel back a day and calling up Brett Oberholtzer. Keuchel has been lights out lately and supposedly is going to pitch on Sunday. 

Here is the DFS Playbook for Saturday May 24th. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them at the bottom of this page or tweet them to be @Jeff_Mans

@matt10marsh Depends on context. Forte as the top point scorer..about a 7.5. Forte has top 4 RB 9.5. Forte as a non-bust 27

@MarioGonzalez_3 @Tedschuster To lock down the run game no matter what happens with Skittle brain

@MarioGonzalez_3 @Tedschuster The key to loving Lynch is loving the #Seahawks run game which you should. That means HAVING to take C Michael

@joshuafitzsimon I have to see some more camp before making matchup plays but I'll tell you the best DST pick this year is the #Rams by far

@MarioGonzalez_3 He is a RB1...lower end but still solid. Every RB in a Peyton Manning system scores 8+ TD's
