The Pitching chalk today isn’t great outside of Clayton Kershaw he is the #1 option on the slate for me.

I am interested in taking a shot at the strikeout upside of Sammy Long. I think a lot of the chalk options are thin so saving money and investing in bats at SP2 is a viable strategy for today.

First Base / C

The first base position is flooded with high-end options. I like Goldy in Coors but he is the chalk cash game option. I will likely play the likes of Jared Walsh or Muncy to get a littl different in GPPs. The Dodgers are one of my favorite stacks.

Second Base

Hampson will be chalk once again in Coors. My personal favorite play at 2B is Kike Hernandez. I love playing Kike versus lefties.

Third Base

Loaded third base position with Nolan Arenado and Anthony Rendon highlighting the position. I am fine paying up and eating a little chalk at this position since I think both guys are so elite.


Shortstop chalk is Coors and for good reason. Dejong continues to be underpriced for his upside. I will keep going back to him. Xander is the most interesting GPP target at the position.


Outfield can go a lot of different ways. I personally love Cody Bellinger tonight. I am leaning toward a Dodgers stack so Betts would then become a priority as well. JD Martinez to compliment Xander and Kike is a nice mini-stack in tournaments. Carlson will once again be chalk today.
