Stage 2

Sprinters are a tricky pick in this game: one who dominates the flat stages can sometimes score as well as a top 5 GC contender, but such a rider is usually expensive, and the drop away in returns is dramatic: four stage wins are worth 280 points, but 4 5th places will only get 40 points, and won't be going anything for their GC ranking in the process.

So Ackermann, Viviani and Demare being unpicked is understandable.  That does mean, however, that points gained are unimpressive today:
EWAN Caleb   32 pts (25 points on the stage, 7 projected points for lying 6th in the points competition)   20 teams
FRAPPORTI Marco   20 (position in points and KoM classifications gained on break)   2 teams
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando   17   4
BILBAO LOPEZ DE ARMENTIA Pello   15 (moved up in GC because De Plus dropped way down the rankings)   1team
CARUSO Damiano   14   1
O'CONNOR Ben   14   30
DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd   12   1
LANDA MEANA Mikel   12   32
I won't give all the riders in credit most days (there were another 19 today, and that is only among riders who we selected): the threshhold for getting mentioned will vary according to how dramatic the scores on the day are.

But riders can get negative day scores: Roglic dropped to 3rd in boththe points and KoM classifications today, so dropped 45 and 15 points respectively.  That was mitigated by the 18 points  he got for the pink jersey, but still gives a daily liability of -42.  He was not alone...

DUMOULIN Tom   -10pts   1 team
MAJKA Rafal   -15   2
NIBALI Vincenzo   -20   43
ROGLIC Primoz   -42   11
YATES Simon   -45   4
CAMPENAERTS Victor   -51   1
DE PLUS Laurens   -153   1


So compiling those rider score changes for the day, we get each manager's day score:
1   Otoxiep87   101 (70 Purplish points)
2   TotalPackage   67 (45)
3   Googolplex   57 (25)
4   AmisVelo   56 (15)
5   Laarsland   54 (10)
6   Flo   , Scrool07   53 (6 each)
8   PremierAndrew   51 (3)
9   Comodoro   50 (2)
10   Salvarani   49 (1)
11   ChrisDK, Fauniera, Triley36, Will10   42
15   Minessa   40
16   Kazistuta   36
17   Del1962   35
18   Tobydawq   33
19   ArchieBoy, Carlo_Algatrensig   29
21   Bminchow, Search, Torcia86   26
24   Josedin, Yellow_Knight   12
26   Vladimir   8
27   LightBing   1
28   Squire   0
29   Tigerion   -10

33   Rote_Laterne   -27
34   Koronin   -28
35   SafeBet   -32
36   BicycleBoy   -34
37   LosBrolin, Shalgo   -36
39   Armchair_Cyclist   -38
40   Karaev   -40
41   Leadbelly   -41
42   BluesInTheBottle, JustSomeGuy   -47
44   Nathanptz   -52
45   DJSprtsch   -136
   Collective_Wisdom   54

Purplish points
We have had two mutually exclusive batches of points so far, for basically a load of tied positions:
1   Armchair_Cyclist, Otoxiep87   70
3   Karaev, TotalPackage   40
5   Googolplex, SafeBet   25
7   AmisVelo, Nathanptz   15
9   Laarsland,    Mellow_Velo   10
11   BikeRacer33   7
12   Flo, Scrool07   6
14   Rote_Laterne   5
15   PremierAndrew   3
16   LosBrolin, Shalgo   2.5
18   Comodoro   2
19   Leadbelly, Salvarani   1

Standings
Those who did well yesterday did poorly today, and vice versa, but that also means that there are few GC changes, and that is where the majority of points are found, so the standings are not enormously changed.  Mellow Velo's move from 5th to 3rd might be the most significant, but it is Flo and Laarsland who share the mention for the biggest, 4 place, jump of the day.

1   Armchair_Cyclist   1240
2   Karaev   1196
3   Mellow_Velo   1191
4   SafeBet   1188
5   BikeRacer33   1164
6   Rote_Laterne   1160
7   Nathanptz   1155
8   LosBrolin   1147
8   Shalgo   1147
10   Leadbelly   1133
11   BicycleBoy   984
