*Remember in single-game high-risk leaving money on the table is one of the best ways to give yourself the chance of being unique and not splitting a top prize.
We tried to come up with something negative about the guy, couldn’t do it. There’s a chance he’s not quite as sharp, or maybe he had some bad sushi last night. Assuming that didn’t happen, Gerrit Cole is a must play in low-risk contests as the clear dominator of the Occupy Model and owner of an insane 1.41 K/IP and 2.27 opposing team total combination.
Mad Max is ranked firmly behind Cole, but he’s still a freak. In low-risk it’s very tough to fade one of these two, and in high-risk Scherzer is appealing simply because he’s viewed more negatively than his machine counterpart. Let’s not forget how ridiculous he made St. Louis bats look on his way to 11 K’s over 7 1-hit frames just 10 days ago. If any team has the chance to flip the script on Cole it would be the red hot Nationals led by true ace Max Scherzer.
