MLB DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings and Fanduel Lineups 9/12/23
In the world of MLB DFS success often hinges on the strategic selection of top stacks. These stacks, comprised of players from a particular team, can yield massive fantasy points when the matchups are in your favor. Today, we’ll delve into some compelling stack options for your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups.
Diamondbacks vs. Jose Butto
Let’s start by dissecting the matchup between the Arizona Diamondbacks and pitcher Jose Butto. Butto has struggled with a 6.14 home ERA (6.44 xFIP) this season, allowing a concerning 15 out of 37 batters to reach base. His Achilles’ heel has been right-handed hitters, who have posted a staggering .384 wOBA against him. This could be the perfect opportunity for the Diamondbacks’ righties to shine.
- Christian Walker: Despite being in a recent slump, Walker possesses the potential to break out, and this matchup against Butto might just be the catalyst he needs to rediscover his form.
- Carson Carroll: Carroll has been consistently producing, with multiple hits in five of his last 11 games. His six steals over the last five games add a dynamic element to his fantasy potential.
- Ketel Marte: Marte is on fire, with hits in 18 of his last 21 games, including nine for extra bases. His hot streak makes him a prime candidate for fantasy points in this matchup.
It’s worth noting that Butto’s recent success came against subpar lineups like the Athletics, Tigers, Pirates, and Nationals. The Diamondbacks present a more formidable challenge, ranking 10th in OPS against right-handed pitchers in the league. This makes the Diamondbacks an intriguing stack option on tonight’s slate.
Giants vs. Cal Quantrill
Cal Quantrill, despite some improvement in September, still has vulnerabilities that make him a prime target for stacking. He struggles with control, walking 3.1 batters per nine innings, and doesn’t rack up strikeouts with just 5.2 Ks per nine. Furthermore, the possibility of strong winds blowing out in the Bay area adds to the Giants’ appeal, increasing the chance of home runs.
- Mike Yastrzemski: Yastrzemski boasts an impressive .372 wOBA, 143 wRC+, and .259 ISO against righties. His recent form, including two homers in his last five games, makes him an excellent choice as the anchor of your Giants stack.
- Thairo Estrada: Estrada has been hitting well, homering in two of his last three games and recording hits in 12 of his last 14.
- Joc Pederson: Pederson, despite limited success against Quantrill, offers another valuable bat with 10 hits in his last eight games.
While Quantrill has occasionally outperformed his peripherals, he enters this game with a high SIERA and the lowest strikeout rate among projected pitchers. The Giants’ lineup may not boast superstars, but it can piece together runs, especially at the top of the order.
The Chicago Cubs find themselves in an enticing offensive situation facing Chris Flexen. Flexen has struggled throughout the season, sporting a 7.36 ERA, 6.00 xERA, and 5.10 xFIP. He’s prone to the long ball, allowing 2.57 HR/9, and struggles against both lefties and righties, making him a prime candidate for stacking.
- Cody Bellinger: Bellinger has shown his power with home runs in five of his last 12 games, totaling 25 for the season. He’s well-positioned to exploit Flexen’s vulnerabilities.
After a somewhat disappointing performance by the Cubs last night, they have another opportunity for an offensive outburst. Flexen’s recent struggles, combined with the Cubs’ potential, make them a stack worth considering on tonight’s slate.
