MLB DFS has a 11-game main slate on DraftKings, and FanDuel. The main slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 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.
Bieber is one of the two tops studs on the slate. Bieber comes into tonight with a 3-2 record but that doesn’t do him justice DFS wise. He’s hit double-digit strikeouts in 5 of 6 starts this season and the one game he didn’t hit strikeouts he fell one shy finishing with 9. He’s faced the Royals earlier this season and fanned 12 Royals.
I’m stacking against Jordan Montgomery. In six starts this season he’s only factored into two decisions going 1-1. He doesn’t go deep into games and is not a high strikeout guy. He gives up power and contact to right-handed batters so I want to focus my Astros stacks there. I’m liking Altuve, Bregman, and Correa.
Yu Darvish is the other stud on the night. I prefer his salary savings on FanDuel over Bieber. Darvish comes into tonight’s game sporting a 3-1 record. He’s already faced this same Pirates team earlier this season going 7 innings, striking out 6, and giving up one earned run. I’ll keep an eye out and watch ownership and I’ll most likely lean to the stud with less ownership.
I know this game has one of the lower totals on the slate but I’m calling my shot with the Dodgers tonight. They’ll face the young arm of Adbert Alzolay who comes into tonight with a 1-2 record in four starts. The youngster gives up more contact to left-handed batters so that is where I’ll concentrate my stacks.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Minnesota Twins, MIN vs TEX, O/U 9
My tournament stack of the night goes to the Minnesota Twins. The Twins are known lefty mashers and that’s exactly what they face tonight in Hyeon-Jong Yang. I don’t care how you stack them up, just make sure you load up on them right-handed batters and watch them score the runs.
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.
