Welcome to another Tuesday at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge, where for just $2 you can not only have a chance to double your money, but own bragging rights in whipping the Touts in the DFS format (Click to play: FanDuel).

Today is a such a fun day to pick players, for though there are some good hurlers (Gerrit Cole, Michael Wacha, Danny Salazar, Jacob deGrom) doing their thing, so are there a cluster of dubious hurlers a la Matt Harrison, Kyle Kendrick (who have the fortune, good or bad, of facing one another at Coors) and Jeremy Hellickson.

But, I am going a little under the radar with the Giants Chris Heston ($7300) chucking the pill in pitcher friendly Petco. Over his last three starts Heston does only have 10 whiffs over 20 innings, but he has a 1.80 ERA to go with a win. Since the Friars have the third most whiffs in the Majors, to go with a .238 average and .295 OBP, I am thinking Heston can deliver the goods.

As for hitters, I went high with Nolan Arenado ($5500) facing the lefty Harrison at home, and low with the Marlins Adeiny Hechavarria ($2000) facing Hellickson and his 1.38 WHIP and 5.09 ERA.

Remember, you can trash talk about whipping the Touts and make a handy $2 profit at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge!

FScore-160x320Today’s expensive pitchers in the FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge do not inspire confidence. I suggest going against the prevailing wisdom and spending more on the batters.

Generally, I would not go with a newcomer, but given the dreary situation with pitchers today, I am going to risk it and field Aaron Nola ($4300), the new kid recently promoted by the Phillies. Kendall Graveman ($6400) has done well since his return to the Majors, so he is my choice for the second pitcher.

That leaves more money than usual for the rest of the team. We may have enough dough to field a veritable all-star team. Let’s splurge and go with Adrian Gonzalez ($5500), Adrian Beltre ($4700), Carlos Gonzalez ($4800) and Nelson Cruz ($6100).

Other than a possible shower in Atlanta, the weather does not seem to pose problems.

FScore-160x320We have a 10-game slate on Monday at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge with a very narrow pitching selection. Seems like every team used their ace on Sunday, leaving little for Monday. 

Matt Harvey ($9000) has been up-and-down lately but appears to be the best option on the board. The Angels have liked what they have seen from Andrew Heaney ($5300) and will give him another start on Monday. Heaney has allowed only four earned runs in his first four starts of the year. 

There are two areas that I am targeting for hitters on Monday. The first is the Seattle hitters going to Detroit to face Alfredo Simon. All Simon has done in his past five starts is allow at least five earned runs in each of them. Robinson Cano ($4700), Nelson Cruz ($6100) and Kyle Seager ($4800) lead the way. 

The other must-have right now is Marlins outfielder Cole Gillespie ($1600). He has a five-game hitting streak and carries a minimum price. I do not expect the hitting streak of bottom-end price to last forever. So cash in while you can.

FScore-160x320Choosing today's lineup for the FantasyScore  Mastersball 50/50 Challenge will not be easy. First, it is Sunday and games start early, particularly if you are on the West Coast. Then, it seems that the desirable pitchers are all expensive.


I am going to go with Dallas Keuchel ($9600) and Jake Arrieta ($9100). Both are expensive, and that makes selecting hitters difficult. If you paint yourself into a corner with the budget, consider Taylor Jungmann ($4800) as an alternative.

With Miguel Montero on the DL, the Cubs have recalled Kyle Schwarber ($2800). During his first stint in the Majors, Schwarber hit .364. He is my choice for catcher.

 In addition, I do like Kris Bryant ($5700) and any of the Detroit Tigers who today will see Baltimore's Miguel Gonzalez. If your budget allows it, consider Nelson Cruz ($6100), facing CC Sabathia.

Note that the weather forecast for Cincinnati, Washington, Philadelphia and St. Louis shows variable with possible summer showers.

FScore-160x320Without any doubt, Saturday is my favorite day to play Daily Fantasy Score (DFS). I am off work, having plenty of time to enjoy the afternoon and evening games. Join me at FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50  Challenge

My first choice for pitching is John Lackey ($6300). He is reasonably priced and is facing the Mets’ Bartolo Colon, who has been sub-par recently. My second choice is David Price ($9100), going against the Orioles’ Chris Tillman. Price, no pun intended, is quite expensive, which makes picking hitters challenging.

To offset the cost of pitchers, I am going with an inexpensive catcher, Alex Avila ($2700), who may play either at first base or as a catcher.

In addition, I like Michael Brantley ($4300) and the Giants’ Brandon Crawford (4900) and Hunter Pence ($4400).

Note that the weather forecast for Chicago and San Diego is iffy, possible showers.
