Time to build our Friday night player pool! I hope everyone has a great weekend. Let’s do this using the cheat sheet format, with preferred players (in all formats) in GREEN and preferred tournament options in GOLD. These are the players I’ll have nearly locked in my lineups, with the non-highlighted names being peppered in here and there. We have ourselves a nice little five-gamer here.
