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.
Bieber is the highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He has a 30.04% strikeout rate and an 5.1% base on balls rate. The decision will fall between which stud to lock, Bieber or Glassnow, with each having their pros and cons.
The Angels are the second highest rated stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. The Hub is projecting them to be the 10th highest owned stack on a slate with 15 games. The A’s have a 4.87 implied run total, 4th best on the slate. Diamondbacks expected starter Jon Duplantier has not gotten out of the 4th inning in his two starts this season and has given up four homeruns in those two starts.
Gray is the highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s a pivot off of the expected chalk in Shane Bieber or Tyler Glassnow. The Team Rise or Fall Study Hub projects him for 11.6% ownership. Gray owns a 26.2% strikeout rate and a 9.9% walk rate.
The Tigers have an implied run total of 4.48 runs today. That puts them right around the middle of the pack in this large slate, yet they are projecting as the 3rd best stack in the FanDuel MLB DFS Study Hub. On such a large slate ownership is typically pretty spread out, but even in this case the Tigers will be under owned. Mariners starter Marco Gonzales is a gas can and if the Tigers can string together a few hits it’ll be a good night.
MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – New York Yankees, NYY @ MIN, O/U 9.5
The Yankees are the top rated stack for FanDuel and DraftKings in our MLB DFS Study Hub. We’re projecting them to be the fourth highest owned stack on FanDuel and the fifth highest stack on DraftKings. New York was swept by division rival Boston and will look to break their losing streak against the Twins.
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.
