MLB DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings, Fanduel lineups 9/27/23
When it comes to MLB DFS, stacking your lineup strategically can be the key to success. In this article, we’ll explore some top stacking options for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups on September 27, 2023. We’ll focus on teams and players that have the potential to deliver big points for your fantasy roster.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers are in a prime position for stacking success in Coors Field. The Dodgers’ offensive prowess is evident, as they are tied for second in wRC+ (116) and third in ISO (.196) vs right-handed pitchers in 2023. Over the past 30 days, their wRC+ stands at a solid 118.
The pitching matchup makes this stack even more enticing. While the Rockies haven’t officially announced their starter, projections point to Noah Davis taking the mound. Davis has struggled this season with an 8.77 ERA and a 5.17 xFIP in seven appearances, including five starts. He’s been especially vulnerable to both righties and lefties, allowing a .364 wOBA to right-handed hitters and a staggering .434 wOBA to lefties.
What’s more, the Rockies’ bullpen hasn’t been reliable either, setting the stage for the Dodgers to explode offensively. Even without the Coors Field advantage, Davis has a career ERA of 9.11, and his 5.95 FIP isn’t much better. Left-handed hitters have particularly feasted on him, with a .362 batting average. In this stack, consider left-handed powerhouses like Freeman, who could potentially reach 100 RBIs in this game, and Muncy, known for his home run prowess.
Freeman boasts an impressive 1.052 OPS on the road this season, making him a strong choice. Meanwhile, Muncy has slugged .535 against right-handed pitchers. Jason Heyward, with a .274 batting average and .489 slugging percentage in 2023, also adds depth to this stack. Heyward has an .836 OPS against righties, further strengthening the Dodgers’ offensive potential in this matchup.
The Cubs have a favorable matchup against the Atlanta Braves, who are dealing with pitching uncertainties as they prepare for the postseason. Darius Vines, a recent call-up from Triple-A, is slated to start for Atlanta. This situation could result in a bullpen game, offering DFS players numerous stacking opportunities.
Vines has posted a 4.40 ERA, making him a target for the Cubs’ hitters. Cody Bellinger, in particular, has been on fire, hitting .309 with 26 homers and 20 stolen bases. If Bellinger faces a lefty out of the bullpen, his .984 OPS in those matchups makes him a compelling choice. Nico Hoerner also shines against lefties, with a .304 batting average and respectable slugging.
Against right-handed pitchers, Hoerner maintains a .352 OBP and has stolen 28 bases this season, showcasing his speed on the basepaths. Ian Happ, a switch hitter, is another asset in a potential bullpen game, boasting an .821 OPS against righties. His .824 OPS on the road adds to his appeal in this matchup.
The Minnesota Twins have a promising matchup against the Oakland Athletics, who have yet to announce their starting pitcher. Roster Resource projects Joey Estes to take the mound for Oakland. Estes struggled in his lone big-league start, giving up six runs (five earned) in just 4.2 innings. His xFIP numbers in Double-A and Triple-A this season were far from impressive, indicating that he might continue to struggle at the major league level.
Minnesota’s offense is well-equipped to capitalize on Estes’s difficulties. They rank fifth in wRC+ (110) against right-handed pitchers in 2023, and over the past 30 days, their wRC+ stands at a strong 118. The Twins have also been productive at home, with a sixth-place ranking in wRC+ (115) and fourth in ISO (.200).
Griffin Canning takes the mound for the Los Angeles Angels, providing an opportunity for DFS players to target the Texas Rangers. While Canning has improved his ERA, it’s still relatively high at 4.39, and he has struggled at home with a 4.85 ERA.
Canning’s vulnerability lies in his performance against right-handed hitters, who have posted a .264 batting average against him. In this stack, consider Marcus Semien, who has hit .277 with 28 homers. Semien performs well against right-handers, boasting an .838 OPS in those matchups.
Mitch Garver, despite playing in only 83 games, has managed to hit 19 home runs with a .382 OBP. He’s solid against righties, with an .891 OPS, making him a valuable addition to your stack. Leody Taveras rounds out this stack, with 13 homers and 14 stolen bases. As a switch hitter, he holds a .774 OPS against right-handed pitchers.
