We did not win the DFBC this past weekend in Las Vegas. So, there will be no million dollar celebration on the streets of a city to be named later as we had hoped. But I want to express something that is extreme importance to me both personally and professionally. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who supported us both this season and this weekend in our quest to capture the DFBC and on the DFS Playbook in general. I was amazed at how many of you reached out directly to offer your support and to me that is what it is all about. Ted and I said that the single thing we take away from this experience is to keep getting better both in our advice and our products so that every single one of you can have the opportunity and experience that we enjoyed this past weekend. Fantasy Alarm Nation is simply the BEST and we thank you so much for your support!!

Now on to today's slate of games. Tonight is a cash game only type of night for me and it all starts with Chris Sale. There is really no reason to fade Sale other than the Orioles offense does hit lefties pretty well. But Sale is not your typical lefty and thus he is my unquetioned starter tonight. If you have to go cheaper than Jordan Zimmermann is the obvious step down here as well. 

The bats are pretty straight forward and a bit expensive tonight. I really don't have a value play at 2B tonight as the three highest priced guys are extremely solid plays tonight. If you are looking to stack then the Angels/Red Sox game should be your target. I do like the Mariners as well against Jerome Williams if you want to go that route but they don't have as much upside as a whole as the Angels do tonight.

Ted 

Hope u held on in the booster. I will mention to Jeff on the preview article

Michael Daddario 

Hey why did "The Alarm" stop writing the weekly preview article? I personally found it pretty helpful.

Thanks again, DFS Playbook! 

Ted and Jeff, you guys are WORLD CLASS! Thanks for talking me off the ledge with the trainwreck that is Masterson. Instead I went with Bruce in my Fanduel lineup. And using the playbook (plus Ackley), currently 1/600 on the DK $30K Superbooster.

Ted Schuster 

position players will be fine for sure go ahead and play them. The storms will clear out eventually

Sean Cedar 

Damn Minnesota Rain. I am looking at Gordon/Danny Santana in that game. If I switch I am going Trumbo/Desmond.

drew 

what are the odds of a rainout in MIN?

Ted Schuster 

possible but masteron is a trainwreck..vargas should be fine.

2nd Pitcher DK 

With possible rain in Minnesota, any suggestions on the 2nd pitcher in DK? How about Masterson? Maybe Cincinnati will be flat from yesterday's doublehead?

@sketchysaga No you're missing the point. One is on the field 85% of time the other 20%. That is the problem

Why do I feel like Kyle Fuller is going to have a show on @SiriusXMFantasy one day?? #MyReplacementProbably

What a perfect segway for Friday nights #NFLNetwork A Football Life of Brandon Marshall

Thank you Jim Harbaugh & Greg Roman for that win tonight. The #Bears desperately needed it....

Come on guys...accept the penalty so that we can set a record. We didn't sit through this bullshit for nothing... #NFL
