MLB DFS has a six-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.
Gausman comes in as the second highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He has a 23.2% strikeout rate while inducing groundballs from hitters 43% of the time.
The low run total, the pitcher friendly ballpark, and the Marlins recent form have me liking Gausman a lot. The Giants pitching has held the Miami bats in check through the first two games of this series. I think that continues tonight.
The Phillies are in Colorado so they’ll be one of if not the most popular stack on the slate. Our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings is currently projecting them to be the best stack and the highest owned stack.
Brad Miller was a late scratch yesterday and he has a questionable tag today. He’s batting seventh so not a major part of the stacks but still something to keep an eye on. My least favorite player in a Philly stack that’s currently projected to play is Alec Bohm.
Smyly rates as the top pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. The weather in Atlanta is looking shaky at the time of me writing. Keep an eye on that situation if you consider using Smyly.
Smyly strikes out about 26% of the batters he faces. If I had to find a negative I’d say his 44.6% hard hit ball rate is a little worrisome, but I’m not letting that chase me away.
At the time of writing this game is looking like it COULD have a weather issue. Keep an eye on that situation throughout the day.
I picked Baltimore to end the A’s win streak yesterday (Now at 12 games) in a shootout of a game. I made a joke that the game would be a 2-1 pitcher’s duel since I said that. Well, it was a 3-1 Oakland victory.
The winning has to come to an end but if today is the day, let’s hope Oakland goes out swinging (Their bats).
Just like yesterday I’m a fan of all sorts of stack combinations with the Athletics but I’m not big on Elvis Andrus in the nine hole.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Oakland Athletics Stack, OAK @ BAL, O/U 9.5
Let’s go with the winning squad for the top stack. Make sure to check the latest weather news and predictions for this game before going with this stack.
Oakland is tied for sixth in MLB for hard hit rate. They’re averaging 4.65 runs per game although they’ve shown they can win 1-0 or 13-12. I’m looking for them to score on the higher side today.
There are going to be times when the 1-5 or 1-4 stacks will be the best. Since everyone is stacking like that for the most part I find it better to fade or use less of one of the players in that range. Don’t do it for the sake of doing it. Make sure you have a reason for the fade and a reason for using a guy batting 7-9.
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.
