Well that went pretty well now didn't it? Last night was a huge night for the Playbook, for me personally and hopefully for all of you out there who played the Friday night slate. I came within a Jose Altuve warning track shot of taking down the Fantasy Aces FAWBC Qualifier, which is a trip I absolutely must conquer here at some point. Then, over on Draftkings I wound up chopping the final Kentucky Derby seat but will happily accept the additional $7,250 price there . As I say folks, we aren't reinventing the wheel here. The way we teach and preach DFS is the ideal one for sustained success. Keep your risk low, maximize your output and you will be a happy DFS'er.
Anyways, let's turn our attention to the early slate on Saturday. It's only a six game pack but we are fortunate enough to get a couple high end arms to choose from. I will be heavy on Strasburg as I just don't like the Harvey play in Yankee Stadium. As with any small slate though it will all come down to how your value plays pay off for you. My favorites are Eric Campbell, Ike Davis and Anthony Gose. Of course, being an early slate you absolutely must check our MLB Lineups page to make sure each of these selections are in the lineup.
