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!
I’ll be breaking down the main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. It’s a seven-game slate on all sites and it begins at 7:15 PM EST/4:15 PM PST.
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.
Ok now that Team Rise or Fall and the MLB Study Hubs have done all of the heavy lifting it’s time for us to put together our lineups. I’ll be focusing on options for FanDuel today.
Taking a look at the hot hitting teams I want to focus on the squads with a combined WOBA and ISO of 500 or more. That gives us Seattle, San Francisco, Texas, Boston, and Baltimore.
From there I’ll take a look at how individuals are doing in the WOBA/ISO combination. This is covered in the wOBA/ISO Hot Hitters Club. Seattle has one player on the list, San Francisco has two players, Texas has one player, Boston has three players, and Baltimore has three players. I prefer teams with at least two hot players so that rules out Seattle and Texas for me.
We have 14 teams to choose from for today’s main slate. My approach to slates is to try and use no more than 1/3 of the teams on the slate. If you stack every team you’re costing yourself money because of all of the stacks that don’t perform. This doesn’t mean I’ll always be correct with the teams I select for my stacks but if I do land on the right teams I have a higher percentage of lineups with the potential to land me in the top spot.
So with that in mind, I wouldn’t completely rule out stacking Seattle or Texas. Seattle ranks as the 5th overall best stack on the slate in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. Texas comes in 8th out of 14 teams so I might only use 10 lineups for them.
Next up I have to take a look at pitching. I don’t have a lot of Earth shattering information when it comes to selecting my pitchers. I tend to go with the highly projected or the “stud” pitchers. I’ll be the first to say that it doesn’t always work out but more times than not a stud pitcher is going to get his stud on. Now, since MLB is cracking down on the sticky stuff we might have to recalibrate who is a stud and who isn’t, but for the most part I’m paying up at pitcher.
Looking at the pitching section above you can see that our filters lead you to the studs. It’s just how MLB DFS works and there’s no need to try to get creative at the pitching position. You can do that with your stacks while maintaining high potential from your pitchers.
We try to help the community the best that we can and do so at as low of a price as we can. We hope you join the family but there is no pressure here!
