MLB DFS has an six-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.
Rogers is the 2nd highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He’s facing a Colorado team that’s an awful 5-23 on the road, although the Rockies did win yesterday.
Rogers has a 30% strikeout rate and a 10% base on balls rate. Those numbers should be good enough to suppress the Rockies offense.
We’re working with a six-game slate that COULD become a five-game slate if the San Francisco-Washington game gets called off. The Astros rank as the 3rd best stack and the 3rd highest owned stack. They’ve won three straight games, and they averaged seven runs per game in that stretch. I like Houston to fall in line with that seven run average tonight.
Scherzer is the highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. There is a possibility of rain so keep an eye on the weather for this game. If this game is postponed I would recommend Trevor Rogers or Frankie Montas.
Scherzer’s numbers are insane: a 34.3% strikeout rate and a 5.8% base on balls rate. If this game plays I expect Max to put up some big fantasy numbers.
The White Sox and Blue Jays are projected for a shootout. Chicago has a +86 run differential and the Blue Jays have a +35 run differential. Both of these teams can mash but I’m looking for the White Sox to put up the big numbers tonight.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Minnesota Twins, MIN vs NYY, O/U 11
The Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hubs rank the Twins as the 2nd best stack on DraftKings and FanDuel. We’re also projecting Minny to be the 2nd highest owned stack on the slate. As I’ve discussed previously it’s ok to use the highly owned stack as long as you offset that by A) Using less popular players within the stack or B) Getting unique with your mini stacks and one off players.
An 11-run total means Vegas expects these teams to slug it out tonight. The Yankees have the higher implied run total and they’re expected to be the highest owned team on the slate. I like being able to get a piece of this game while using the less popular team.
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.
