MLB DFS Study Hub Targets 4/8

Top 4 MLB DFS Picks for DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo Fantasy Baseball Targets 9-1

Welcome to the MLB DFS Study Hub Targets for the April 8th Main Slate on DraftKings and FanDuel! These games will start at 7:05 est or later. Ratings and ownership percentages will not be final until the final Study Hub update before lock. Let’s get into it!


Max Scherzer – Easily the highest upside on today’s slate for both DraftKings and FanDuel. Legit 10+ strikeout upside here and is at a reasonable price point on both sites. SP1 for me without a doubt. 

Jake Odorizzi – Top value option on the slate on FanDuel and a solid pay down option on DraftKings. The Angels are going to swing and miss sporting a K% of 26.27% and a SwStr% of 11.51%. Solid upside for a cheap starting pitcher. 

Charlie Morton – The Reds’ lineup lacks power and they will swing and miss. Great combination for Morton and a reasonable price tag on both sites. Morton has the second highest K% on the slate at 29.42%.

DraftKings Stacks

New York Mets – Top stack of the day and a team ISO over .200. Josiah Gray typically struggles with command which should lead to free baserunners and potentially some crooked innings for the Mets. Only 2 hitters have an ISO under .200 in this matchup. 

San Diego Padres – The Padres draw a matchup against Merrill Kelly in a favorable hitters park in Arizona. The salaries are lower than they should be here and allow the flexibility to get to a Scherzer/Morton combo at SP. Manny Machado, Luke Voit, Trent Grisham, and Jake Cronenworth stand out here. 

FanDuel Stacks

New York Mets – A lot of power here as noted in the DraftKings section and a lot of options under $3,000. High upside and they come in as the top stack on FanDuel. 

Arizona Diamondbacks – Contrarian stack of the day goes to Arizona! Sean Manaea is an above average strike out pitcher but, the ballpark factors mixed with how under-owned Arizona is makes them stand out. Ketel Marte and Carson Kelly are lefty mashers posting an ISO over .255 vs left handers last season. Great MME stack!

Top One Offs

Top one offs of the day! Jason Castro grades out as a top value on both sites coming in at $2,100 on FanDuel and $2,900 on DraftKings. If he is in, fire up Castro! All of these hitters have high homer run upside. 

Good luck and let’s get paid!
