There are four games tonight on the late night slate for Fanduel. Over the last week the MLB Lineup Builder has been successful at creating lineups that compete in these small slates. It is still critical to apply some research for the tool to be most effective. Picking the correct pitcher to start and the correct pitcher to exploit is the key. This is the case regardless of the number of games being played; with only 6 to 8 pitchers to choose from the odds of hitting the correct one are much better. Once you have found the pitcher you want to start, and the team you stack against a weaker pitcher then allow the tool to fill the other roster spots. This creates a hybrid of a gpp and cash game lineup. Some players may need to be faded if the tool picks hitters going against your pitcher, or players in obvious unfavorable matchups. Sometimes the final roster created may not use the entire cap space. On smaller slates the highest scores are often from rosters build well below the cap space.
Pitcher to start- Jake Peavy
Team to stack – Angels
