MLB DFS has a 15-game main slate on FanDuel and DraftKings. The main slate locks at 7:05PM EST / 4:05 PM PST.
These are the early morning Top 5 MLB DFS Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings. 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.
E-Rod is the top-rated pitcher on DraftKings. He’ll face off against a tough Braves team who has a 24.26% strikeout rate to lefties and Rodriguez just so happens to be a lefty. E-Rod carries a 25.4% strikeout rate and an 8.5% walk rate into tonight’s game.
The chalk Padres busted last night so lets look go east and look at the Orioles visiting Cleveland. They are the 4th rated stack in the DraftKings stacks sheet. Baltimore faces off against Cole Quantrill who is winless on the season and is giving up one of the highest hard hit rates on the slate at 39.8%. Quantrill is a right handed pitcher who gives up natural splits so I’m building my Baltimore stacks with focus on left-handed batters.
Minor is the second-highest rated and top projected arm on FanDuel according to the MLB Study Hub. He has a 22.6% strikeout rate and 8.5% walk rate coming into tonight’s game against Detroit. The Tigers put up 10 runs last night against the Royals and Minor will look to lock them down.
I’m going back to the well over on FanDuel with the Giants. They are projected as the second-best stack according to the MLB Study Hub while being the 12th most owned. We’ve had many of our coaches preach embracing the variance and taking on lower owned stacks and the Giants fit that description to a tee. It also helps that Arizona is horrendous at baseball and hasn’t won a road game since April.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Detroit Tigers, DET @ KC, O/U 9.5
Deja vu! I like the Tigers again tonight as my favorite tournament stack. According to the MLB Study Hub the Tigers are the third best stack on both FanDuel and DraftKings, while having the 17th and 10th most ownership respectively on each site. I know it’s beating a dead horse but a high rating plus low ownership has equaled green for our members.
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.
