Weather Considerations

Before we get into player analysis and lineup suggestions, let’s take a quick look at the weather conditions. It’s essential to consider weather when making your DFS picks, and tonight, it’s going to be a factor, especially for the New York Mets. They’re facing a tough situation with rain throughout the day and during the game, plus strong winds blowing in at over 15 miles per hour at Citi Field. This could lead to delays or even postponements, so proceed with caution if you’re planning to roster Mets players.

On the brighter side, Atlanta and Colorado enjoy excellent weather conditions. Both teams are at home, and the forecast is clear and warm. So, expect some great hitting opportunities for players in these matchups.

Pitching Options

Now, let’s take a closer look at the pitching options for tonight’s slate. We’ve got a variety of choices, and I’ll break them down for you.

Zac Gallen: Gallen has been a reliable pitcher throughout the season and has the potential to provide strong DFS value. Keep in mind that Arizona is in a crucial situation where they can clinch their wildcard spot tonight, making this game even more important. While facing the Astros is a tough matchup, Gallen’s strikeout upside and track record make him a trustworthy option.

Joe Ryan: Ryan offers an intriguing option, albeit with some risks. He’s facing the Rockies at Coors Field, which as we know isn’t ideal for pitchers. However, Colorado’s lineup has shown vulnerability to right-handed pitchers, making Ryan’s high strikeout rate an attractive attribute. Keep in mind that Minnesota has already secured their playoff spot, so Ryan’s pitch count might be monitored more closely.

Dylan Cease: Cease has been displaying an impressive strikeout rate recently, making him an appealing choice. His matchup against the Padres isn’t ideal, but he has the potential to rack up strikeouts. However, his 10.1% walk rate is a concern. Expect Cease to throw over 95 pitches, making him a reliable option.

Lance Lynn: Lynn offers strikeout potential but has struggled with giving up home runs this season. He’s on the road against the Giants, and while San Francisco is a favorable pitcher’s park, they strike out slightly more than the league average against right-handed pitchers. Lynn is reasonably priced at $9,500 and could be a value pick for your lineup.

Carlos Rodon: Rodon comes at a more affordable salary and has been showing his strikeout potential recently. He’s facing the Royals, who have struggled against left-handed pitching this season. Kansas City’s 24.7% strikeout rate against lefties is the seventh-worst in the league. Rodon could provide solid value at his price point.

Remember, the key to success in DFS is finding the right balance between high-upside, high-salary players and value options who allow you to afford them. Depending on your budget, you can mix and match these pitchers to create a well-rounded lineup.

Stacking Opportunities

Now, let’s discuss some stacking opportunities for tonight’s slate. 

Atlanta Braves: The Braves have an outstanding matchup against Trevor Williams of the Washington Nationals. Williams has struggled this season, allowing a high number of home runs and walks. Atlanta hitters like Ronald Acuña Jr., Austin Riley, and Marcell Ozuna could have a field day against him. Consider stacking Braves players for your lineup.

New York Yankees: Despite a disappointing season overall, the Yankees have shown some life in recent games. They face Jordan Lyles of the Kansas City Royals, who has struggled with home runs and has a low strikeout rate. Aaron Judge is a top pick here, but there are also affordable options like Gleyber Torres and DJ LeMahieu to round out your Yankees stack.

Arizona Diamondbacks: Facing JP France of the Houston Astros, the Diamondbacks have a good chance to put up runs. France has been inconsistent this season, and Arizona hitters like Christian Walker, Ketel Marte, and Corbin Carroll could take advantage of his struggles. Arizona offers some value options, making them an attractive stack.

Coors Field (Colorado Rockies vs. Minnesota Twins): Coors Field is always a hotspot for DFS, and tonight’s game between the Rockies and Twins is no exception. Both teams have offensive firepower, and you’ll want exposure to this high-scoring environment. Look for hitters on both sides who can take advantage of the thin air and short fences.

San Diego Padres: While Dylan Cease has strikeout potential, he has also struggled with walks and home runs. The Padres have power hitters like Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, and Eric Hosmer who can capitalize on these weaknesses. Consider adding Padres players to your lineup as one-offs or in a mini-stack.

That wraps up our MLB DFS Preview for Friday, September 29, 2023. Best of luck with your DFS contests, and be sure to check for any last-minute lineup changes and weather updates closer to game time.
