MLB DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups Friday 9/8/23
When it comes to MLB DFS and crafting your winning lineup, one strategy that consistently pays dividends is stacking. Stacking involves selecting a group of players from the same team, capitalizing on the synergy and collective performance. In this article, we’ll delve into the DFS Top Stacks for Friday, September 8th, 2023 that could catapult your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups to the top of the leaderboard.
New York Mets: Fueling the Fire
The New York Mets have been on a tear recently, and their offensive prowess cannot be ignored. Over the past 30 days, they’ve posted a wRC+ of 110, placing them among the top eight in the league. Tonight, they face Dallas Keuchel, who has struggled this season with a 5.06 ERA and a 5.86 xERA in 21.1 innings of work. Keuchel’s Achilles’ heel is his performance against right-handed batters, with a .362 OBP, .484 slugging, and a .362 wOBA. It’s a green light for stacking New York’s righties and capitalizing on Keuchel’s vulnerability.
Padres at Astros: Hunter Brown’s Home Woes
Hunter Brown, as a rookie, has shown mediocrity on the road and outright struggle at home. With a daunting 5.56 ERA in Houston this season, he’s an inviting target for DFS enthusiasts. Notably, right-handers have hit .279 against him, making them the go-to choice for stacking against Brown. Juan Soto, despite being a southpaw, boasts an impressive .937 OPS against righties and a .984 OPS on the road. Even with a career-low .398 OBP, he’s a prime addition to this stack. Manny Machado may have had a subdued season against righties, but his history of slugging over .500 in the last two seasons makes him a hopeful inclusion. Xander Bogaerts, batting .272 with 16 homers and 14 stolen bases, is a reliable anchor with an .811 OPS over the past three weeks.
Atlanta Braves: A Consistent Offensive Force
The Atlanta Braves are like permanent residents in the MLB DFS spotlight, and for good reason. Their offense is a juggernaut, leading the league with a wRC+ of 120 and an ISO of .221 against right-handed pitchers in 2023. Over the previous 30 days, they’ve maintained a wRC+ of 133 and an ISO of .222. When at home, their dominance continues with a wRC+ of 128 and an ISO of .237. The Braves are a stack you can rely on, game after game.
Dodgers at Nationals: Testing MacKenzie Gore
MacKenzie Gore has garnered significant MLB experience this season, but for DFS purposes, there are opportunities. He’s a lefty with a 4.66 FIP and a penchant for giving up 1.63 homers per nine innings. The Dodgers, despite playing on Thursday, are worth stacking against Gore. Mookie Betts shines with an OPS exceeding 1.000 across the last three weeks and an impressive track record against lefties. Will Smith, the catcher, adds to the firepower with his .273 average and 17 homers, along with an .858 OPS versus southpaws. Outfielder Matt Outman, a lefty, has a respectable .741 OPS against left-handed pitchers, and Gore has allowed lefties to bat .308 against him. Keep an eye on Betts’ health, but there’s tremendous potential in this stack.
Orioles at Red Sox: Houck’s Tough Luck
Tanner Houck faces a tough test with a 5.40 ERA at home and struggles against left-handed batters. Lefties have hit .281 against him, and the Orioles have the lineup to exploit this weakness. Rookie Terrence Henderson is on the cusp of an impressive season with 20 homers, 20 doubles, and 10 stolen bases. His .862 OPS against right-handed pitchers is particularly noteworthy. Despite injuries, Cedric Mullins has managed 13 homers and 16 stolen bases, with a .782 OPS against righties and an .823 OPS on the road. Surprisingly, Ryan O’Hearn has excelled against righties, boasting a .303 average, .819 OPS, and an .893 OPS on the road.
In the dynamic world of MLB DFS, crafting the perfect lineup can be a game-changer. These top stacks for Friday, September 8th, 2023, offer a roadmap to success. Keep a close eye on player updates and lineup changes, and may your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups bring you glory.
