MLB DFS has a six-game main slate on DraftKings, 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.
The Cincinnati Reds are playing well and the Diamondbacks are playing poorly. On top of that Mahle will only run you 7.5K compared to Zach Plesac 9.6K, Lance McCullers 9.1K, and Zack Wheeler 8.8K. You’ll want to pair Tyler with one of these studs to give you a solid floor with your upside.
The Angels are projected to roll out a right-handed heavy lineup against BlueJays righty T.J. Zeuch and that doesn’t bother me at all. Los Angeles is projected for 5.7 runs today and they’ve scored 7+ runs in four out of seven games to start the season. Stack them up and rise to the top.
Yesterday it was Lance Lynn in this spot so today we’re running it back with another Lance. McCullers is a good pitcher but this pick is based on the quality of the two teams to start the season.
The Astros have a +31 run differential. The A’s have a -40 run differential and have only score 19 runs through eight games. This seems like a spot where McCullers should be able to suffocate a struggling offense.
You can look at what I wrote above for Lance McCullers and apply it to why I like the Astros stack tonight. Houston is back to stealing signs, oops, I mean swinging their bats like they were a couple of seasons ago. It’s early in the season so this doesn’t mean they’ll play like this all year, but I’m going to ride them while they’re hot.
The Angels check a few boxes for me that I look for when targeting an offense. They’re a road favorite, they’re projected for the most runs on the slate, the weather conditions should be good for hitters, and the Blue Jays have lost three games in a row. They’re going to be a popular stack so get creative within your builds. That doesn’t mean fade Mike Trout, ALTHOUGH…..
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.
