There are many things that you can do with our MLB DFS study hub. It’s loaded with information and has many different functions that you can mess around with. We have these study hubs for MLB DFS, NBA DFS, NFL DFS, NASCAR DFS, NHL DFS, PGA DFS, and MMA DFS. Today, I wanted to break down different ways to use the Study Hub with examples of filters used. These are up to the user for what metrics and at what levels they’d like to use for each category. The world is your oyster!
These are the last 14-days of team-by-team splits vs. starting pitcher-handedness. Basically, you can get a quick glimpse of which teams are HOT vs. handedness of pitcher based on splits alone.
This is a list of hitters with a .400 wOBA / .300 ISO split with at least 20 Plate Appearances over the last 30-days of baseball.
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The DraftKings Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The FanDuel Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
These targets were created by sorting the DraftKings Rating and FanDuel Rating to 75 or higher. The DraftKings projections and FanDuel projections were filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings value and FanDuel value were sorted by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership and DraftKings ownership were not filtered for this shortlist.

We have a smaller slate than we’ve had the last few nights which is always welcomed in my book. The variance in MLB makes me want to yank my hair out, but I digress. In the building block portion of today’s article I want to look at pitching. Ever since the spider-tack scandal ‘hit’ (pun intended) there has been a drop in pitcher production – especially among the high priced pitchers. Looking back on yesterday’s main slate we know that Lance McCullers ad Robbie Ray were going to be chalky options:
McCullers was 100% owner in all my 3 man contest, and Ray was the SP2 in 75% of them. Pitchers are definitely not returning their value on lately so we’re going to have to be smarter when selecting them. Digging into tonight we saw some of the top option above on both sites:
Since I play a majority of my volume on DraftKings that is where I want to focus, but it should be applicable to FanDuel as well.
The first guy that is going to be extremely owned tonight is Luis Patino. A top prospect for the Rays in being called up to make his season debut. His number are explosive but of course they aren’t against major leaguers so take it with a grain of salt, but let’s look at Cleveland’s anemic batting numbers.
Cleveland’s wOBA and ISO are at or below legue average and will be going against a pitcher they’ve never seen before. The strikeout rate for both Patino and the Indians is nothing to ignore either. When you combine this with the fact that he’s only $6,500 on DraftKings, know that he will carry a lot of ownership because not much is needed to pay off his salary and he’ll allow you to play bigger bats.
But who is the SP1 you ask?
I encourage you to do your own research but Manaea is coming into own this season. He carries a 6-6 record with a 3.28 ERA. The strikeout rate isn’t the best on the slate but the familiarity with playing a division opponent always sits well with me.
I hope this starts your lineup building in the right direction. Any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to hit me up in Discord or on Twitter @EdArias87
