As I mentioned earlier it’s been all baseball for me this week, so I spent a lot less time than usual doing this. My first lineup is definitely the safer or and more diverse one, but for some reason I think my second lineup is gonna score more points so long as everybody shows up, so we’ll wait and see what happens. As you can see I’m pretty confident in OJ Howard, Ben Watson, and the Steelers D all having productive weeks, which can be seen in the fact I picked them in both lineups. If you haven’t been doing so, I highly suggest doing some World Series Draft Kings as well. There are plenty of cheap tourneys with decent payouts, and during Game 1 I got knocked out of the money from $500 to $50 on the last out of the game. As happy as I was that Kimbrel finally had a good save, I would have gladly accepted the money too. Oh well. That’s just the fucking way she goes. As always, good luck this weekend everybody.
