MLB DFS has a four-game main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. The main slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST.
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.
Alcantara is the top rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. Sandy has started nine games this season and he’s allowed more than three earned runs just twice (four and eight runs). He averages a little over five strikeouts per game, and gives up just under two base on balls per game. I’m looking for Sandy to have a decent outing against an up and down Phillies offense.
The Red Sox come into today’s action as the second rated stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting them to be the fourth highest owned stack on an eight-game slate. It’s always a good look to grab an offense with high upside that the rest of the field is sleeping on or looking past.
Smyly is the top rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. Smyly has a 25.9% strikeout rate and a 10.2% base on balls rate. Drew and the Braves take on a struggling Pirates squad that’s lost three straight games. Pittsburgh also has the second worst run differential in all of MLB. Vegas is projecting a nine run total so I’m expecting Atlanta to do the majority of the scoring.
The Blue Jays are the top rated stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. We’re projecting them to be the second highest owned stack on the slate. Toronto has a +40 run differential and the Red Sox have a +41 run differential. They can’t blow each other out in the same game, but one of the two teams should put up a lot of runs.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Los Angeles Dodgers, LAD vs ARI, O/U 8.5
The Dodgers rank as the fourth best stack for DraftKings and FanDuel in our MLB DFS Study Hub. We’re expecting them to be the second highest owned stack on DK and the fourth highest owned stack on FD. If this holds then I prefer LA on FanDuel. The Dodgers averaged 6.2 runs per game over their last 10 games, and 7.4 runs in their last eight wins. Tonight’s the night for them to hang a big number on the Diamondbacks.
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.
