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 14-game slate that begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST on all sites.
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.
Now that the hard part has been cleared it’s time to dig a little deeper as we start building our stacks. I like to look at players that are playing really well the last seven days. I’m of the opinion that baseball players are streaky so I look at the most recent sample.
These are the top 10 hottest hitters using the same parameters as the Hot Hitters Club over a seven day span. The only difference is I use nine plate appearances instead of 20 plate appearances.
Arizona: Eduardo Escobar and Pavin Smith
Colorado: Brendan Rodgers and Elias Diaz
Chicago White Sox: Brian Goodwin, Leury Garcia, Jake Burger, and Zack Collins
Detroit: Robbie Grossman and Jeimer Candelario
Miami: Jesus Aguilar, Garrett Cooper, and Adam Duvall
Minnesota: Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach
Oakland: Matt Olson and Elvis Andrus
Philadelphia: Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto, and Rhys Hoskins
Pittsburgh: Ke’Bryan Hayes and Ben Gamel
San Francisco: Mike Yastrzemski and Curt Casali
Toronto: Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Marcus Semien, and George Springer
The Philadelphia Phillies rate as the top stack for DraftKings in our MLB DFS Study Hub while the Chicago White Sox rate as the top stack for FanDuel. Philly has three players on the hot list above and Chicago has four players. That seems like an excellent spot for us to start our builds.
I wrote this yesterday about the Phillies:
At the time of writing the Phillies are a slight underdog against the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs snapped their 11-game losing streak yesterday after roughing up Zach Wheeler early in the game. Is Chicago back? I don’t know. But I will throw a few darts at the hot hitting Phillies’ players.
I love using team stacks with hot players. Does it always work out for me? Absolutely not. This is DFS and things almost never go exactly as planned. So with that in mind I will have stacks dedicated to the White Sox, Marlins, Phillies, and Blue Jays because all of them have at least three players on the above lists.
Here are a few things that catch my eye for today’s slate:
*At the time of writing there aren’t any real weather concerns BUT keep an eye on news for Pittsburgh at the New York Mets. There’s been storms brewing around New York the last couple of days. We got a late postponed notice for this game yesterday as images of a flooded NYC hit social media. There’s a 33% chance of precipitation for this game tonight but again, keep an eye on the news.
*Chicago White Sox, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego, and Minnesota are all projected for five or more runs. Teams projected for 4.5-4.9 runs include Baltimore, Tampa, New York Mets, Oakland, Milwaukee, Houston, San Francisco, and the Los Angeles Angels. That’s 15 out of 28 teams that are projected for five runs (rounding up). That gives plenty of options for stacking.
*The slate is full of huge favorites. New York Mets (-202), Minnesota (-237), San Diego (-227), and the Los Angeles Dodgers (-272).
*Four teams are closing the roof/playing in domes today. Miami, Tampa, Texas, and Houston.
*Tampa is the only team on a win streak of three or more games.
