Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

Top 5 MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings and FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks

DraftKings MLB DFS Target – Jose Berrios, P, MIN vs SEA, O/U 8

Berrios is the fourth highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He’s taking on a Seattle squad that has a -6 run differential at this early point of the season.

Jose has a 24.3 strikeout percentage and a sub .300 wOBA against him. I’m looking for him to handcuff the Mariners today and pick up the win.

DraftKings MLB DFS Target – Minnesota Twins Stack, MIN vs SEA, O/U 8

The Twins are rolling out seven right-handed batters against left-handed Marco Gonzalez. I like the 1-5 stack (of course) but the Twins as a whole give us plenty of stacking options. Miguel Sano bats seventh but definitely has two home run potential. Andrelton Simmons is a righty that bats better against right-handed pitchers so maybe you avoid him. Especially with him batting eighth. Max Kepler is batting sixth and he’s a lefty that’s bad against left-handed pitchers. I’ll be avoiding him for the most part.

FanDuel MLB DFS Target – Lance Lynn, P, CWS vs KC, O/U 8.5

Lynn is the second highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s the third most expensive pitcher on the slate so you can grab good production at a bit of a reduced price.

Lynn is striking out 25.8% of the batters he faces while walking just 8.3%. If he pitches to his averages today we could be looking at a really good score. A score that will show up in the optimal lineups.

FanDuel MLB DFS Target – Chicago Cubs Stack, CHC @ PIT, O/U 8.5

The Cubs grade out as the third best stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. We’re projecting them to be the fourth highest owned stack which is a big reason why I like them today.

I prefer road teams that I feel are in good spots. That way I’m guaranteed nine innings of at bats. The Cubs fill that role today. I like the Chicago right-handed batters today, but you’ll have to mix in a lefty like Rizzo or Pederson to build solid stacks. I’d prefer Rizzo (better numbers against lefties, batting higher in the order) over Pederson but this is baseball. Anyone has the potential to have a big game. We just have to roster them on the right day.

MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Arizona Diamondbacks Stack, ARI @ COL O/U 11

You didn’t really believe that I would totally ignore a game at Coors Field did you? The Dbacks are projected for just over five runs. Our MLB DFS Study Hubs have Arizona as the top stack on DraftKings and the second best stack on FanDuel.

Arizona is rolling out four left-handed batters and two switch hitters to take on the right-handed Jon Gray. I’m not expecting a ton of home runs from the Diamondbacks but rather a “death by a thousand paper cuts” approach. A lot of hits and runs being driven in.
