A cozy little 5-gamer tonight, so we’ll get right to it! 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.
