MLB DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings, Fanduel lineups 9/30/23
The MLB DFS landscape is as dynamic as ever, and as we approach September 30, 2023, we’ve got some exciting matchups to explore. In this edition, we’ll delve into the top stack options for your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each player to help you make informed decisions. Let’s get started!
Cincinnati Reds vs. Drew Rom
The Cincinnati Reds are riding high after a 19-run performance on Friday, and they’re facing Drew Rom, a pitcher with a less-than-impressive 7.98 ERA and a penchant for giving up 1.8 home runs per nine innings. Rom’s splits are equally exploitable from both left and right-handed hitters, making the entire Reds lineup a viable option.
Jonathan India seems poised to lead off, and despite his struggles against lefties this season, he’s been on fire lately with multiple hits in three of his last four games. Christian Encarnacion-Strand, although struggling against lefties, is on a hot streak with five homers in his last seven games.
The wildcard here is Nick Senzel, who boasts an impressive .420 wOBA against lefties. If he slots into the two-hole in the order, it could create a potent 1-2-4 lineup stack. Senzel is also cost-effective and offers positional flexibility. In case he’s not in the starting lineup, consider pivoting to Spencer Steer ($3,200), though he comes at a slightly higher price.
With playoff implications on the line, the Reds’ top hitters should find themselves in the heart of the order. India and Senzel are likely to hit at the top, with Encarnacion-Strand in a crucial spot. Rom, on the other hand, has struggled significantly, allowing at least four earned runs in four MLB starts. The fact that he’s starting in the second-to-last game of a wayward Cardinals season speaks volumes. Rom has also been susceptible to the long ball, giving up 1.84 home runs per nine innings, with righties batting an alarming .339 against him. This matchup suggests that a trio of righties could thrive.
Spencer Steer is the complete package, boasting a .356 OBP, 23 homers, 36 doubles, 15 steals, and a .907 OPS against southpaws. India, despite missing time due to injury, has 17 homers and 14 steals, which is impressive for a second baseman. While he’s had his struggles against lefties this season, he’s shown a .733 OPS in such matchups since 2021.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tristan Beck
The Los Angeles Dodgers are always a team to watch, especially when facing a pitcher like Tristan Beck. However, it’s essential to confirm the Dodgers’ regular lineup before making your choices. If they play as they did yesterday, they’ll be a formidable force.
Freddie Freeman leads the pack with a stellar .406 wOBA and a 160 wRC+ against righties. Max Muncy is no slouch either, boasting a .372 average with a .283 ISO. Will Smith is a cost-effective option in this stack, helping to balance your budget. If you have more spending power, consider J.D. Martinez or Mookie Betts. Smith has been consistent, hitting safely in five of his last seven games and driving in four runs over his last three.
The Dodgers, with their star-studded lineup, could be a contrarian play in a slate with other obvious offenses to target.
Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers Janson Junk
The Cubs are set to face Janson Junk or possibly Adrian Houser if Junk doesn’t start. Either way, it appears to be a favorable matchup for this Cubs trio. Junk has struggled in MLB with a career 5.47 FIP, including a 4.11 mark this year at Triple-A.
Seiya Suzuki has been on fire lately, boasting a 1.041 OPS in the last three weeks and an impressive .896 on the road this season. Cody Bellinger, despite a recent dip in production, maintains an impressive .990 OPS against lefties, making him a reliable choice against bullpen arms. Ian Happ, a switch-hitter, sports an .819 OPS versus righties, with an .818 mark on the road. This trio looks primed for success against Junk or Houser.
Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers Andrew Heaney
The Mariners are in the playoff hunt and are set to face Andrew Heaney, a pitcher who can rack up strikeouts but has also struggled with control and home runs. Seattle’s top three hitters against lefties should be a solid play on this slate.
Kutter Crawford has been significantly better on the road compared to his home performances, but regression to the mean is likely, given his stark splits. Over his last 12 starts, he’s posted a 4.82 ERA.
Gunnar Henderson brings both power and speed to the table, with 28 homers and nine triples. Adley Rutschman enters the postseason with a hot bat, boasting a .963 OPS in the last three weeks. Cedric Mullins, despite recent struggles, has 15 home runs and 19 stolen bases in just 113 games, along with an .823 OPS against righties since 2021.
