Hey, everyone! Sean fired up a special Tuesday edition of the Lineup Logic podcast, so make sure you give that a listen in addition to looking over this breakdown. It’s Tuesday and I’ve been running around doing annoying car things all day, so I’m excited to jump into this ten game breakdown. 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.
FYI: I play primarily on FanDuel, so that’s worth considering when you look over my picks, as some of them are related to the new blocks, steals scoring etc.
