MLB DFS has an eight-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.
Lynn is the biggest favorite on the slate today and he’s takes the mound for a White Sox team that’s lost two straight games. I expect Lynn to get the Sox back on the winning track.
The Royals enter tonight’s action with a three-game winning streak and a 4.9 implied run total. That’s the third highest run total on the slate. The weather looks like it’ll be a beautiful day in KC with the wind slightly blowing out to centerfield. Let’s stack some Royals!
Wainwright and the Cardinals take on the Reds after getting demolished by the Dodgers in Los Angeles last night. Cincy is a sub-.500 team that CAN score a lot of runs. I think they get shutdown tonight as the Cardinals get comfortable at home.
The White Sox have an implied run total of 4.8 for tonight’s slate. We’ve seen the Chicago offense go nuclear several times this season. Hopefully they do so tonight whether they’re my main stack or used as a mini stack.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Milwaukee Brewers, MIL vs ARI, O/U 9.5
The Brewers are my top stack of the day, as they will be for almost everyone playing MLB DFS today. They have the slate high implied run total of 5.5 runs. They do enter tonight’s action after losing one game, but the Diamondbacks are an awful baseball team that gets lit up often. Tonight is the Brewers’ turn to take advantage of Arizona.
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.
