MLB DFS has a 5-game main slate on DraftKings, and FanDuel. The main slate begins at 6:35 PM EST/3:35 PM PST on DraftKings and FanDuel.
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.
Means is coming off of his no-hitter, so people will be on him today. I think there are two top options to choose from tonight, Means and Walker Buehler. Means comes into tonight with a 4-0 record and a low 1.37 ERA. He has a 9.78 K-rate this season and gives .98 HR/9. The Mets have been somewhat cold to start this season. I don’t mind locking Means into one of the two SP spots on DraftKings.
The Nationals are facing off against veteran Chase Anderson. Anderson has a 1-3 record this season with a 5.54 ERA. He carries a high walk rate of 11.9%. Anderson looks like a reverse splits pitcher who has given up contact and power to right-handed batters. I like getting creative with a 5 man stack as all of these Nationals are capable of getting on base.
Buehler is the other top arm on the slate. Tonight, he’ll face off against the strikeout-prone Mariners. Buehler has only factored into one decision this season in his six starts having a record of 1-0. Since breaking into the majors in 2017 Buehler has a 10.25% K-Rate. I love his spot tonight.
The Blue Jays get to play in warm Atlanta tonight where the ball tends to carry because of the weather. This game has the highest implied Vegas total on the slate and Toronto will face Bryse Wilson who is making just his 11th career start. He gives up contact and power to both sides of the plate. I’m looking to stack the heart of the order here.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Los Angeles Dodgers, MIN vs TEX, O/U —
The Dodgers have been in a bit of a lull offensively. They started the year on fire and have faded due to injuries but they can light up anyone. Kikuchi is an experienced pitcher who only has a few years in the majors but pitched extensively in Japan. Kikuchi gives it up to right-handed batters so that is where my stacks will be focused.
The MLB DFS Core Builds are also referred to as our MLB DFS Building Blocks. Each staff member 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.
