MLB DFS has a 6-game main slate 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.
Montas comes into tonight as the highest-rated pitcher in the MLB Study Hub. He’ll benefit from facing off against an inept Mariners offense that has been atrocious. The Seattle offense has been no-hit twice already in this early season and I wouldn’t fault you for picking on a bad offense. Montas sports a 5-3 record in 9 starts with a 4.79 ERA. He doesn’t have the elite K-rate we like to see (22.5%) but this is such a smash spot for him to be a sold SP2, especially at only $6,200 on DraftKings.
The MLB Study Hub loves the Tigers tonight as the highest project stack on the slate. I know you’re scratching your head, saying to yourself, “The Tigers… really.” Yes, really. They’ll be facing off against Cleveland starter Sam Hentges who hasn’t lasted more than 4 1/3 innings this season. In Hentges last outing he only went 1 2/3 innings while scoring -11.1 DraftKings points. The left-hander gives up power and contact to right-handed batters, so that is where I’ll begin my Tigers stacks tonight.
Blake Snell gets to go against the Milwaukee Brewers tonight. This is more of a GPP call considering the Brewers have their ace, Brandon Woodruff, on the hill tonight which will make getting the win even tougher. Snell brings a 1-0 record in 9 starts so far this year with a 3.79 ERA. He looked like the Blake Snell of old in his last outing against Colorado, take that with a grain of salt, going for 11 strikeouts in 6 innings of work. The Brewers aren’t world beaters by any stretch and can strike out with the best of them. I love Snell as GPP leverage over guys like Woodruff, Lynn, and Means.
We going to Baltimore and the second-ranked stack in the MLB Study Hub. You know it’s an odd day when the Tigers and Orioles are going to be targeted. The Orioles will face right-handed pitcher Matt Shoemaker. Shoemaker has a 2-5 record with a 6.08 ERA. Shoemaker gives up contact and power to both sides of the plate. Everyone in this lineup is in play for me, just get creative with stacks as it is a relatively small slate.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Chicago White Sox , CWS vs STL, O/U 8.5
I’m going with a tad bit more of a chalky stack as my favorite of the day. The Chicago White Sox are at home against the Cardinals. They ranked 3rd and 2nd in the FanDuel and DraftKings MLB Study Hub Stacks respectively. They’ll be going against left-handed pitcher Kwang Hyun Kim. Kim has natural splits so right-handed batter hit for better contact and power against him. So that is where I’ll be starting my stacks.
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.
