In his Tips & Picks column last week, our John Lee made a great point about the importance of game scripting on short slates:
“Because there are only four games from which to choose, my best advice this (and next) week is to mentally determine how you envision the games playing out and building your rosters accordingly...Minimizing your player pool, particularly for mass multi-entry (MME), is essential for maximizing your likelihood of a top 10% finish in tournament play.”
John’s advice holds water on tournament slates of all sizes, though to his point, the edge you gain by taking a strong stand on how each game will play out is amplified on short slates. With this in mind, I won’t be breaking down each fantasy relevant player and categorizing them according to projected ownership as I did last week. Instead, I’ll share my script for each game and offer some detail on only those players who will appear on my actual rosters. For context, I plan on putting around 15-20 unique lineups in play this weekend.
