MLB DFS has a 14-game main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft today. The main slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST.
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.
Glasnow is the second highest rated pitcher behind Jacob deGrom in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting Glasnow to be 20% less owned than deGrom so that gives him the nod for me. You can almost always sign me up for similar production at lower ownership.
The Yankees rank as the third best stack, and are projected to be the fifth highest owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. That’s a great combination for me. I get exposure to a stack with explosive potential that won’t have a lot of people trying the same stack combinations.
Cleveland’s stadium is equally mediocre for righties and lefties so there’s no advantage there for the Yankees as they roll out eight righties tonight. I like combinations of the 1-6 hitters (of course), but don’t sleep on Aaron Hicks if he’s in the seventh spot. He has more power against lefties than righties.
Gray is the fourth highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s less than three ratings points from being the second highest rated pitcher. Gray is an extreme groundball pitcher (50.5%) and strikes out 26.2% of the hitters he faces. Those are some factors that could equal a great performance.
The Orioles ranks as the number one stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. We’re projecting them to be the ninth highest owned stack on the slate. Again, that’s a great combination.
The Orioles will face Oakland lefty Cole Irvin. My belief is that Baltimore gets to Irvin early and then coasts to victory. “BUT EAGS, OAKLAND HAS WON 11 STRAIGHT AND YOU LOVE STREAKING TEAMS.” This is true. But streaks don’t last forever, and this is Oakland’s first game on an East Coast trip. Baltimore puts up the runs and puts an end to the A’s winning ways.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Oakland Athletics Stack, OAK @ BAL, O/U 9.5
Oakland is the fourth highest rated stack on DraftKings and the second highest rated stack on FanDuel in our MLB DFS Study Hub. Yes, I just picked Baltimore to put an end to the Oakland 11-game win streak. That doesn’t mean Oakland goes down easily.
The A’s have scored the sixth most runs in all of baseball. They can string together hits when their lineup is rolling which makes them a really good stacking option. I like everyone in their projected lineup except for Elvis Andrus. I’ll definitely have some Oakland stacks because I think they lose a high scoring affair. (You can yell at me on Twitter @eagsixcards when this is a 2-1 pitcher’s duel.)
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.
