Yesterday’s lineup ended up with 138.15 points. This ranked as 247/2,700. Pitching was the key as Lester had 42 points and Scherzer had 36. While no home runs were hit by any hitters, they were able to manufacture enough points to turn the lineup into a winner. Normally I expect to get more points out of my hitters but investing in pitching can hide poor hitting. Here is the link to yesterday’s lineup Draft Kings MLB June 1st
Before looking at today’s lineup we will flashback to the top performers from June 1st.
Pitchers: John Lester 42.35, Max Scherzer 35.8, Michael Fulmer 34.85,
Michael Fulmer was the best pitcher because of his value. Fulmer only cost $7,500. Whena lineup has a pitcher this cheap score this highly then the owner should expect big winnings with an expensive lineup.
Catcher: Wilson Ramos 26, Curt Casali 21
First Baseman: Wil Myers 30, Brandon Belt 24, David Ortiz 19
Wil Myers exploded with a home run and a double in the night game. He will be a cheap option tomorrow that is seeing the ball well. Myers has a hit in 5 of his last 6 games.
Second Baseman: Adam Rosales 23, Robinson Cano 18, Yangervis Solarte 15
Shortstop: Alexi Ramirez 39, Carlos Correa 15
Alexi Ramirez crushed the ball twice Wednesday night. Ramirez only has 3 home runs and all 3 come in the last 3 days.
Third Baseman: Todd Frazier 18, Jake Lamb 16
Outfield: Chris Young 37, Mookie Betts 32, Billy Hamilton 29, George Springer 21
Lineup for June 2nd
Pitcher: Madison Bumgarner $12,900, Kyle Hendricks $8,900
Catcher: Wellington Castillo $3,200
First Baseman: Chris Davis $3,900
Second Baseman: Brian Dozier $3,700
Third Baseman: Yangervis Solarte $3,100
Shortstop: Carlos Correa $3,400
Outfield: Adam Jones $3,400, Andrew McCutchen $4,300, Hyun Soo Kim $3,200
The Kim selection makes sense here because he is cheap and hitting 2nd while Adam Jones is hitting 1st.
ALTERNATIVE LINEUP: (for FEATURED OR MULTIPLIER LEAGUES)
P Bumgerner, P Keuchel, C Norris, 1B Davis, 2B Dozier, 3B Perez, SS Correa, OF Starling Marte, OF McCutchen, OF Springer
