Happy Fourth Of July everybody!! Yes, it is true that while you all are grilling, swimming, eating, drinking, relaxing and watching baseball I am in the lab trying to create the best possible DFS lineups for ya'll tonight. Yeah I know...smallest violin in the world, right? 

Tonight we are blessed with not one but threeof the best starting pitchers in MLB at our disposal in Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale & Yu Darvish. Obviously you want to get as many of these into your lineups as possible but it will cost ya. So, on sites like DraftKings & DraftStreet where you start multiple pitchers you could package one or two of the above names with a Dall Deuchel (on DraftKings especially) or Matt Cain (on Fanduel). 

I get the feeling this is going to be a low scoring night overall so it is important to maximize the hitters you select. Don't chase one dimensional power or speed tonight unless incredibly cheap. My favorite stacks tonight are the Dodgers, Rangers and White Sox in that order. 

Remember that if you want more information on how to use the DFS Playbook or how to form your own general DFS strategy, check out our DFS Strategies section of the Fantasy Alarm website. We have got you covered. Also, remember if you create a new account on DraftKings you will receiver our entire 2014 Fantasy Football Draft Guide, our inseason NFL and our complete DFS tools for FREE!!

Marc Trestman is so far ahead of opposing defenses week in and week out it is just crazy...#Bears

@_JohnDuckworth_ @FantasyAlarm @PlayFFWC Yes I will be...must piss you off knowing I'm still so much better at it than you? Sorry man....

I say it time & time again the ONLY thing the #Bears D can do is intercept the pass. Yet that is all teams seem to want to do against them..

@MWest815 @Tedschuster I would keep both Jets in there rather than guess which will be the big play

@KamalRosode I am keeping Le'Veon at this point
