Your Fantasy Nomad is back. Well at least back to providing you with my Daily Fantasy Baseball recommendations as I have been contributing almost non-stop in other areas here at FantasyAlarm.com including Fantasy Basketball contend and doing Player News and Notes over six hours pretty much seven days a week (hopefully you have been following our feed, especially from 5-7pm where I provide additional DFS recommendations). Before I get into hooking you up with my plays of the day for Tuesday May 6th I want to say thanks to all those on social media who requested my return to contributing DFS content it was much appreciated. You all are awesome!
