Do you want to learn how to swim away from the sharks? Play daily fantasy baseball over on Fantasy Aces and you’ll be able to start out, learn and win big money in a much more laid back atmosphere where each contest isn’t full of people who play DFS for a living.

Saturday was a very good day for the Playbook so I really hope that you built your lineups around our recommendations. Fading Clayton Kershaw in the evening slate proved to be genius (really just followed the numbers) and noticing that Kole Calhoun was once again hitting in front of Mike Trout also paid off in a big way. We also continued to ride the hot hand of Rockies 2B DJ LaMahieu at a significantly discounted rate. 

The biggest thing to keep in mind on Sunday's is that many regular players, especially catchers, are rested on Sunday. PLEASE for the love of anything holy be sure to check our MLB Lineups page before you finalize your lineups this morning.
