MLB DFS has an 11-game main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and a 14-game slate on SuperDraft. The main slate begins at 1:05 PM EST/10:05 AM PST on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft.
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.
Rodon enters Sunday’s action as the highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He sports a 20.2% strikeout rate and a 10.7% base on balls rate. Those aren’t incredibly dominant numbers but we’re talking about the Tigers, one of the worst teams in MLB.
The White Sox rank as the best offense to stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting them to be the 3rd highest owned offense on the slate. Those are the numbers I’m always looking for, and on top of that they’re a road team. Gotta love getting a guaranteed nine innings of at bats.
Nola is the 2nd highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s facing a Yankees offense that CAN go off but obviously I’m expecting them not to today. Aaron has a 27.8% strikeout rate and a 8.2% base on balls rate. The strikeout rate should do Nola well against the free swinging New Yorkers. The Yankees are 11th in MLB in strikeout rate.
The Rockies have an implied run total of 4.6 today. It’s not close to the highest on the slate but it’s a good starting place for this stack. Our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel projects the Rockies to be the 3rd best offense while being owned the 5th most of all teams on the slate. If the Rockies get rolling today we could be on a high scoring, low owned offense.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Chicago White Sox, CWS @ DET, O/U 9
The White Sox are the standout stack on both sites today. I detailed why I like them for DraftKings in a section above. The same reasoning holds for the FanDuel side as well. The White Sox are the top ranked offense on FanDuel while being projected to be the 4th highest owned stack. The Tigers are a pretty bad team and I’m looking for them to be on the bad side of a blowout today.
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.
