Derek Carty returned to Tout Wars Daily domination in Period 5, Week 2, riding Carlos Carrasco and his ten strikeout, eight inning performance for 39.6 points, along with Rich Hill (22.7) and Yoenis Cespedes (23) for 155.3 points, getting contributions from every player on his roster.

Who else would finish second but Todd Zola, who also rostered Hill and Carrasco, generating points with Mikie Mahtook (19) and also getting production from all his selections in posting 138.3 points, while Jeff Zimmerman grabbed bronze for the week with 133.3, also on the strength of the Carrasco/Hill/Cespedes troika.

Tim Heaney still leads Period 5 overall with 270.15, followed by Steve Gardner (257.5), and then BBHQ's Ray Murphy who has 250.25, while overall Murphy has quietly moved into fourth place with 2019.3 points.

Of course Zola leads the overall drive for the total points ticket with 2156.4 points, followed by Carty (2112.15), Murphy, Howard Bender (2118.95) and then Andrea Lamont (2003.7). 

Period 5, Week 3 takes place tonight. For the archivists, the Touts play a daily game against one another every Friday at DraftKings. Lord Zola is the curator of this fine mess, which breaks the season into five four-week cycles, with the two teams garnering the most points over each advancing to a final championship that includes the Tout collecting the most points over all 20 weeks.

The overall scoreboard can be viewed here.

Rotowire's Tim Heaney forged forth with a solid lead for Period 5 of Tout Daily with a 164.25 point total driven by Kevin Gausman (27.35), Brian Dozier (33) and Marwin Gonzalez (23) along with a solid team where only three of his ten picks earned three points or less, and all generated points.

Heaney's Rotowire mate Jeff Erickson finished a distant second (143.8), also fueled by Dozier along with a strong performance from Jacob Faria (25.9) with BaseballHQ's Ray Murphy nudging behind Erickson for a third place finish with 143.25 on the strength of big days from Gausman and Dozier, but also a 30-point game from Giancarlo Stanton.

That puts the troika ahead as we drive for the final ticket with Todd Zola (2018) and Andrea Lamont (1982.1) leading the overall pack in the contest which does indeed award a couple of extra Golden Tickets to the top two overall point getters.

As we scream towards the end of Period 4, "Baseball Prospectus" alum Mike Gianella took the weekly honors over Cycle 3 with 140.5 points, though Andrea Lamont and Todd Zola still hold the keys to Golden Ticket time with Mike's strong finish only being good enough to push him to seventh overall this period.

Gianella rode Chris Sale (31.9) and Aaron Nole (31.55) but had trouble distancing himself from Andrea and Todd, who also milked the same hurlers en route to the pair finishing second and third respectively this week. But the duo does hold the top two overall slots with 455.5 points (Zola) and 413 (Lamont).

Zola again flexed his dominance muscle at DFS, finishing in the top-3 for the third straight week, while Andrea has finished among the top teams twice over her past three attempts.

Also worthy of note is USAT's Steve Gardner, who finished the week in fourth place with 128.7 points, placing him third overall for Period 4 with 392.5 points. Additionally, though still down in the cycle's overall rankings at 13th (323.6), Jeff Boggis managed his second straight top-5 week after earning his Ticket to the finals Period 3 with a solid 442.6 points.

Period 4 concludes this week, leaving just one more shot for the Touts to hit the final come August.

Patrick Davitt managed to assemble the best Tout Wars Daily squad to complete Week 4, Period 4 of the contest, scoring 159.5 points on the strength of Jose Ramirez (33 points), J.T. Realmuto (26), Brett Gardner (22), Andrew McCutchen (21) and Jaime Garcia (20.4).

Mike Gianella (141.6) finished second for the week, with Phil Hertz (141) going third, Rick Wolf (128.6) taking fourth while Todd rounded out the top five with 127.75, grabbing the top slot for Period 4, and his second golden ticket to the finals, with 582.8 points.

Andrea Lamont managed 109.35 for the cycle, but that was enough to push her total to 522.35 points, a second-place finish and the second golden ticket.

Period 5 begins this Friday, leaving just one more Period of four weeks for the Touts to hit the finals come September.

My mate and partner Todd Zola might have been slow out of the proverbial Tout Wars DFS box, particularly over the first period in April. However, since that point, Z has been beyond dominant, finishing in the top five in six of the past eight weeks. This past Friday, he crushed the field with 170.55 points, besting second placer Phil Hertz (140.7) by a hefty margin.

Fueled by Bryce Harper (34 points), Josh Bell (27) and Robinson Cano (23), seven of the ten roster spots Z selected earned ten or more points, which is indeed a remarkable return.

In finishing second, Hertz was also able to exploit the combo of Harper and Cano along with James Paxton (28.5) while Charlie Wiegert finished a distant third with 128.75, also via Harper, augmented by Buster Posey's 21-point Friday.

Overall, that leaves Todd ahead for Period 4 with 320.6 points (note Todd already has one Golden Ticket having blasted the field in Period 2 with 532.35), followed by Phil with 289.5 points while Rotolady Andrea Lamont holds third place with 275.75.
