Hi, my name is Josh Robbins.  I would like to share my Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) strategy with you throughout the MLB season.  Fanduel is my preferred game of skill.

Welcome to the first full weekend of the 2016 MLB season.

3-Strikes: Here’s what you expect from my daily articles:

My Top 3 Starting Pitchers (aces, mid-level, bargain)

My Top 3 Stacking Options (multiple players from the same team)

My Top 3 BVP (Batter vs. Pitcher) Options

 Alex Anthopoulos extended both Joey Bats and EE after they broke out with career years. It was an awesome gamble and a lot of the success they had in 2015 - was based on that value. Add in bringing in Josh Donaldson at an MVP caliber for 3 more years, and you have a great value team.

There’s ten games tonight
