Back on the grind. Monday can be just as great as any other day. Let’s go game-by-game and break this down.
TBR @ NYY
Blake Snell (L): Ugh. Viable in tournaments.
Jordan Montgomery (L): Montgomery’s in a good spot, but Yankee Stadium is scary, so I like him more-so in tournaments.

MIN @ CLE
Bartolo Colon (R): He’s $44. We shouldn’t go here, but I’d be lying to you if I told you I didn’t throw a few batter-heavy Colon lineups into the $4.44 tournament on FD. (I’m really not a fan of toying with pricing like this in DFS. It kind of screws up the dynamic of the slate.)
