MLB DFS has a ten-game main slate on DraftKings and 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.
Snell has no prior history against the Giants, but that doesn’t concern me. The Padres and Yu Darvish shut down the Giant’s offense and after a short night, they’ll have to face another stud pitcher. Snell sports a 38.1% K-Rate. Add onto the fact that Petco Park is a pitcher-friendly stadium and I’m locking him in.
The Rays are coming off an extra-innings loss at Fenway yesterday blowing an absolute gem by Tyler Glasnow. This game has one of the higher Vegas implied totals on the slate at 9 runs. I’m looking specifically to stack the Rays left-handed batters against Boston starter Nathan Eovaldi.
I’m not so sure a lot of analysis is needed for Bauer. He was the Dodgers prized off-season signing adding to an already stacked team. He was phenomenal in his first start against the Rockies in Coors until he imploded in his last inning of work. The A’s haven’t hit well to begin the season and chances are they’ll struggle again against the reigning Cy Young award winner who sports a 40% K-Rate after one game.
Surprise, surprise. If you’ve stacked the Dodgers every game this season you’ve probably come away winning money. The Dodgers will possibly be without Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor. Right-handed batters seem to get to expected starter Jesus Luzardo. I’m looking at Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, and Will Smith.
My tournament stack of the day goes to the Minnesota Twins. The Twins have been known to mash left-handed pitchers as they have some power in their lineup. The ageless wonder Nelson Cruz has three bombs this early in the season, and the same goes for Byron Buxton. Jorge Polanco has hit three home runs against projected starter Matthew Boyd. If you are a BvP truther you will see Boyd has had success against some of the expected Twins lineup but that doesn’t scare me away.
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.
