MLB DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups Thursday 9/7/23
In the world of MLB DFS, finding the right stacks can make or break your lineup. Today, we’re diving deep into the top stacks to consider for your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups. These strategies are crucial for maximizing your chances of success, so let’s get into it.
Atlanta Braves: A Powerhouse on the Rise
The Atlanta Braves have been a well-oiled machine in the 2023 season. Their dominance against right-handed pitchers is undeniable, boasting a wRC+ of 120 and an impressive ISO of .221. Over the past 30 days, they’ve taken it up a notch with a wRC+ of 131 and an ISO of .219. When playing at home, they are nothing short of spectacular, leading the league with a wRC+ of 128 and a jaw-dropping ISO of .237.
Now, let’s talk about their opponent. Adam Wainwright, a once-great pitcher, is stumbling through this season. In his last four starts, he’s managed just 17.2 innings and sported an abysmal 9.17 ERA. His 6.40 xFIP, 1.98 WHIP, 8.1 BB%, and 7.0 K% scream trouble. Wainwright’s inability to generate swings and misses is a recipe for disaster, and tonight could be brutal for him.
Here’s a fun fact: the only current Brave who has homered off Wainwright is Kevin Pillar. But don’t expect that to remain the case after this game. Wainwright’s historically bad season continues, and he might as well be a pitching machine for the Braves tonight. It’s the perfect setup for a stacked lineup.
Cubs vs. Diamondbacks: A Weak Link in the Chain
The Chicago Cubs are up against the Arizona Diamondbacks, with Ryne Nelson likely taking the mound. Arizona’s rotation is a thin one, and Nelson isn’t exactly a beacon of hope. Sporting a 5.14 FIP, he struggles against both lefties and righties, with .293 and .296 batting averages against, respectively.
The Cubs, with their switch hitters and solid base-running game, can exploit Nelson’s weaknesses. Nico Hoerner has shown his strength on the basepaths, stealing 36 bags and hitting .311 at Wrigley Field since 2021. Ian Happ has heated up recently with 17 homers and an .828 OPS against righties. And don’t forget about Koyuki Suzuki, who’s been on fire with a 1.116 OPS over the last three weeks. His .833 OPS against right-handers makes him a valuable asset in this stack.
Royals vs. Touki Toussaint: A Chance to Shine
Touki Toussaint has been erratic lately, walking 32 batters in his last 46 innings and posting a dismal 5.28 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. This could be a rare opportunity to stack against him. The Royals, not known for their powerhouse offense, have a chance to shine here. They’ve demonstrated a marked improvement at home with a .738 OPS compared to a .656 OPS on the road.
The Royals’ standout player is Bobby Witt, a threat on the basepaths with 39 stolen bases and 28 home runs. He could do some serious damage against Toussaint. Keep an eye on this stack; it might just surprise you.
Mariners at Rays: Exploiting Weaknesses
The Tampa Bay Rays, plagued by injuries, are turning to Zach Littell in their rotation. Unfortunately for them, it hasn’t been paying off, especially in his last five starts, where he’s posted a 5.53 ERA. On the season, Littell has a dismal 6.04 ERA, and right-handed hitters have feasted on him, batting .312.
His recent hot streak with a 1.442 OPS over the last three weeks is hard to ignore. J.P. Crawford, while not a power hitter, has hit .271 and boasts a .389 OBP. Against righties, he’s slugging .474.
In conclusion, when it comes to MLB DFS, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of both players and pitchers is key. These top stacks offer a winning strategy for your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups. Stay sharp and make the most of your DFS experience. Good luck!
