MLB DFS has a 13-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.
deGrom comes into tonight as the highest-rated pitcher in the MLB Study Hub. He’ll benefit from facing off against a bad Rockies offense. deGrom is coming off an injury so be cautious of any news of a pitch limit. He has a 3-2 record in six starts with a .68 ERA. His K-rate is 32.9% is second only to Scherzer on
The MLB Study Hub loves the Twins tonight as the highest project stack on the slate. They should, however, carry some pretty high ownership according to the Study Hub. They carry an implied run total of 5.62 runs, by far the most on the slate. They’ll face right-handed pitcher Dean Kremer and his 6.35 ERA.
Scherzer is at home going against the Reds tonight. He is the highest-rated and projected scorer in the FanDuel portion of the MLB Study Hub. Mad Max has the highest K-Rate on the slate (34.3%). While many will look at deGrom, I prefer the $1k worth of savings going to Scherzer. This will open up some salary savings allowing you to bring in some better bats.
We’re going to San Francisco, the fourth-ranked stack in the MLB Study Hub. They look to bounce back after being swept by the Dodgers. They’ll head down to hitter-friendly Arizona and face Corbin Martin. The young Martin has only started one game this season but in looking at his splits he appears to be a reverse splits pitcher, giving up power and contact to righties. That is where I’ll be looking to start my Giants stacks.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Cleveland Indians , CLE @ DET, O/U 9
The Indians are my tournament stack of the night. They rank better as a FanDuel play than a DraftKings play so take it with a grain of salt. They don’t project to carry high ownership at all on either site. Cleveland does carry a 4.78 implied team total, the sixth highest on the slate. Detroit starter Tarik Skubal doesn’t have a whole lot of BvP against these Indians so it should be an interesting matchup. In the review of Skubal’s splits, I want to attack him with the Indian’s righties.
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.
