Just thought that I should remind you in case you forgot...

How good was the Playbook yesterday? How about 44-96 (.458), 4 HR's, 14 RBI & 15 runs scored. The Playbook was so hot last night that I actually forgot to remove Brian McCann from two of my Fanduel lineups and still easily won both double ups. 

Now that all of the trade deadline stuff has been put to rest let's focus back on what makes us winners and what makes us money right now and that is daily fantasy baseball. Tonight is another stud pitcher evening and the big decision is whether to pay the top dollar for Clayton Kershaw or fade him out. If you are playing 50/50's tonight you absolutely should use Kershaw. If you wanted to drop down to Cueto I wouldn't be upset with that but any lower on a one pitcher site and you are asking for trouble. 

The play of the day as far as position players are concerned is Paul Goldschmidt though fitting his salary in will be a challenge. I love some of the value plays in the OF which will save you quite a bit of salary if you are paying for the stud arms tonight.
