MLB DFS has a 14-game main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft today.
These are the early morning Top 5 MLB DFS Picks for DraftKings and Fanduel. Be sure to dive into the MLB DFS Rankings, Cash Picks, and Player Pool or the GPP Picks and Player Pool afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall MLB DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.
deGrom is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall MLB Study Hub for DraftKings. He’s one of the most dominant pitchers, if not the most dominant pitcher in baseball. The only three knocks on him for tonight are A) The Mets are 36-42 in deGrom’s last 78 starts, B) The game is in Colorado where things can get goofy, and C) There’s a possibility of snow in Colorado today.
If you want to roster the best pitcher regardless of ball park then it’s deGrom all the way. If you like to look at ball park factors then the Rockies are going from pitcher friendly Dodger Stadium back home to batter friendly Coors Field.
The Oakland Athletics are the second ranked stack, but projected to be the 13th highest owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. I’ve liked the A’s a lot over the past week. I’ll go back to the Oakland well one more time tonight.
Matt Olson is questionable for tonight but guys like Laureano, Lowrie, and Chapman are solid building blocks for your Oakland stacks. I also like the potential of a 7-2 stack if you’re looking to get very creative.
The Nationals pitching staff allowed 11 runs to the Diamondbacks yesterday so who do you call to put out the fire? Max Scherzer of course.
Scherzer grades out as the second highest rated player in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. Max has a 34.3 K% and a 5.8 BB%. I’m looking for a great performance from Scherzer to get the Nationals a win tonight.
The Angels rank as the third best stack but the 10th highest owned stack in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. I love getting exposure to a low-owned offense that has the potential to explode.
If you’re trying to do a standard stack then I’d look at 1-6 and fade Pujols in the five hole. There will probably be a couple of times this season where Pujols looks a little like the old Pujols (Like April 2, 2021 when he put up 20 fantasy points). I believe there will be more days where he looks like the new Pujols which, funny enough, is old.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – New York Mets Stack, NYM @ COL, O/U 9.5
The Mets are the top rated offense for both sites in our MLB DFS Study Hubs. They’re playing at Coors Field so of course, everybody will love them as well.
New York should roll out a left-handed heavy lineup to take on Colorado’s Chi Chi Gonzalez. There was a stat floating around that Jacob deGrom (three) had more hits than any other Mets player during his starts this season. That’s a little terrifying when you’re considering a team your top stack of the night. Well, the trend has to break some time and I’m predicting that to be tonight.
The MLB DFS Core Builds are also referred to as our MLB DFS Building Blocks. Each staff member identifies the core players they would build their Cash or GPP lineup around for both DraftKings and FanDuel. These MLB DFS Picks are basically the Building Blocks of their MLB DFS Lineups.
The MLB Strategy Notebook gives our staff a place to write notes specific to each slate for members to read regarding strategy for each slate. They will mention which stacks they are targeting, which players make more sense for GPP formats over Cash formats and other lineup building tidbits!
The MLB DFS Picks and Pools for GPP’s is crucial for Single Entry players. This list of priority picks are players with slate-winning upside each night. They aren’t just the top projected players, they are picks that take into consideration the Rise or Fall ownership projection, tournament leverage, and daily fantasy baseball roster construction.
The MLB Stacks will display the top stacks of the day using the data from the MLB Study Hub! This will display what teams project the best, which will be higher owned, and a player-by-player breakdown to show which players could be going overlooked.
