FScore-160x320On Tuesday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.

Here are a couple of my picks.

This season, I have been very happy consistently using St. Louis Cardinals right-hander John Lackey ($8100) and deploying the savings on hitting. Consistency is the word for the veteran right-hander, who has enjoyed success against Cincinnati and draws the Reds at home. At the age of 36, Lackey has allowed more than three runs just once in the last 3 ½ months!

In 2015, it doesn’t matter whether Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo ($5900) faces lefties (.927 OPS) or righties (.925 OPS), as he handles them all. Coming into Tuesday’s action against going-nowhere Milwaukee with a bullpen start, Rizzo is on fire, with a .545 batting average (11-for-21) and six RBI in the last week. In fact, behind Jake Arrieta starting at Wrigley Field, it is a good night to load up on Cubs hitters.

Compete against the Mastersball staff at FantasyScore here. I can be followed on Twitter @b_walton.

Beware that the Mastersball 50/50 game has been cut back from 30 entries down to 20, so enter quickly before it fills up.

We have a good slate on Monday led by David Price ($9600). Price has been very good all season but especially strong since going to Toronto. Second starter is a little tricky.  I am going with Gio Gonzalez ($7200) over Jaime Garcia ($7200) by a slight margin.

On the hitting side, we start with Jose Abreu ($5500), who has a nice matchup against Randy Wolf (14 earned runs in 24 innings pitched). The Pirates are in Colorado, which puts Andrew McCutchen ($5400) in play. Nolan Arenado ($6000) continues to be a must-start.

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.

Welcome to "Roto-Bituaries," which we hope will evolve both into a daily review and discussion of who is hot, who is hurt, and who is suspended, focusing on fantasy sports, but noting a lot of goofy things happen all over the planet.

That means the idea is to provide some information that helps you make informed decisions when setting your daily or weekly rosters, but as important, to have some fun (because games are indeed fun).

But, that also means things will be a bit fluid here as the virtual space develops some personality.

So, it is Week 1 for the NFL, with the baseball season streaming to an end and what do we see?


Questions arise around Mike Evans and Michael Floyd, along with Tre Mason and Todd Gurley, although among the four, Floyd is probable while the other three are dealing with leg injuries meaning even if they start, iffy is the performance word. Note that Evans and Mason are both listed as active, but it also means Benny Cunningham becomes a reasonable play facing the Redskins. I would sit C.J. Spiller as well.

In Cleveland Josh McCown is out with a concussion and Johnny Manziel is probable with a hand ding, and that means a couple of things. First, neither is worth a play under any circumstances, and second, using the Tennessee defense against the Browns offense could pay dividends..

We all know Dez Bryant is down for 2-3 months, with Victor Cruz (knee) still out as is Dwayne Bowe and Julius Thomas.

On the limited list are Chris Ivory as is T.Y. Hilton (who is so hard to sit) but since both are Monday plays, keep an eye on the updates as both will likely be ready. On the other hand, Toby Gerhart is questionable as is LeSean McCoy and they are probably better on your bench this week..

On the probable side, Derek Carr, Randall Cobb, and Justin Forsett, but again, if you have an alternative, go elsewhere till these guys shows us they are worthy of a start.


Last week I warned about Seattle missing Kam Chancellor, and well, both the Seattle and Carolina defenses (who are without Luke Kuechly) are clearly not as dominant without those two respective players.


Barry Zito was called back up for the Athletics, but despite the team placing starter Jesse Chavez on the 60-day DL, don't expect a lot of the former Cy Young winner. Zito will get a few gratutitous innings. Still, he remains one of the most interesting players on the planet.

Tiger Woods has not been a danger on the PGA tour for several years now, and he is out for the remainder of the tour as a result of back surgery. Whatever else be said, Tiger is still Tiger.

Again, remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50-team 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @lawrmichaels.

It is Sunday and a busy day for DFS, so let's have at it with the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge where showers are suspected in Arlington.

 My go-to starting pitcher for today is Stephen Strasburg ($7300) picking it up against the Fish, supported by the Reds Anthony DeSclafani ($7000) facing the Brewers. DeSclafani has quietly become a very steady starter, allowing more than three runs just once over his last ten starts.

As for hitters, as much as I love Mark Buehrle, I am going with a troika of Boston Bats at Rogers Centre, meaning Mookie Betts ($4500), Blake Swihart ($4200), and  Dustin Pedroia ($4200).

Note Mastersball will be playing a Fantasy Score football contest as well. You can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score and follow me @lawrmichaels

Welcome to the start of 2015 Football Sunday with Mastersball, where we are again partnering with FantasyScore and presenting a 50-team 50/50 Challenge. With the great response last week, the Challenge has been expanded to 400 slots, and you can indeed make multiple entries (if you tried earlier in the week, a glitch prevented that, but this has been resolved).

So, after my optimistic dart throwing at the Raiders last week, we are back to reality and I am picking on the Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday, on behalf of Drew Brees ($8000), Mark Ingram ($5300) and Brandin Cooks ($6600).

Then, I am going cheap with the Tennessee defense ($2700), who may not be the best, but since QB for Cleveland is so iffy and untested, for now I am guessing the Titans can handle them.

Again, remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50-team 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @lawrmichaels.
