MLB DFS has an eight-game main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and a twelve-game slate on 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.
Eflin comes into Easter Sunday’s action as the highest projected pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He has a middle of the road 21.5% strikeout rate so we’re looking for run suppression and avoiding multiple guys on base every innning.
The Royals grade out as the second best stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings.
The current lineup order projection is Merrifield, Benintendi, Santana, Perez, Soler, Taylor, Isbel, Alberto, and Lopez. I like the first seven guys in the order. They’re all pretty decent against right-handed pitchers. Since this is baseball don’t be afraid to drop Isbel into a few lineups to be unique and to hopefully catch some lightning in a bottle.
Skubal ranks as the highest value on the slate in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. This is the play for you if you want to use the most expensive players available. We’re projecting Skubal for 26 FD points tonight. His 6K salary opens up a lot of salary for some big bats.
The Yankees stack is our second highest projected stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel.
New York’s lineup order is LeMahieu, Judge, Hicks, Torres, Bruce, Sanchez, Frazier, Urshela, and Gardner. It’s right-handed heavy and their facing a right-handed pitcher. I hate to take the easy way out but I like all of the Yankees today from a stacking standpoint. My least favorite Bronx Bomber would be Gardner and that’s because he’s batting 9th for the home team. That means less plate appearances but it doesn’t mean he can’t do well in his four plate appearances.
The Red Sox are the third best stack according to our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings and FanDuel.
Their current batting order is Hernandez, Verdugo, Martinez, Bogaerts, Gonzalez, Renfro, Vazquez, Dalbec, and Arroyo. The Sox are rolling out eight righties/switch hitters (Verdugo is a lefty) to take on the left-handed Bruce Zimmerman of Baltimore. I like to target teams when they have severe opposite hand lineups. It doesn’t mean that a bunch of right-handed relievers can’t replace Zimmerman, but if the Sox can do some early damage it won’t matter.
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.
