MLB DFS Top Stacks for Friday 9/1/23
Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks article for Friday 9/1/23. In this article, we’ll delve into the most promising stack options, focusing on Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, and Baltimore Orioles. Let’s uncover the key insights and strategies to maximize your DFS success.
Toronto Blue Jays: Dominating Coors Field
The Toronto Blue Jays are poised for a potent performance in their matchup at Coors Field. Their above-average offense aligns perfectly with MLB’s most hitter-friendly park factors. Notably, the Blue Jays have showcased their prowess against right-handed pitchers, ranking 11th in wRC+ (104) and 7th on the road with a wRC+ of 107. Over the past 30 days, their consistent form continues with a wRC+ of 101.
The opposing pitcher, Chris Flexen, presents an opportunity for the Blue Jays to shine. Flexen has struggled against both lefties and righties, boasting a .358 wOBA to lefties and a glaring .427 wOBA to righties. Additionally, Colorado’s relievers are burdened with a high ERA, further enhancing the Blue Jays’ potential.
For those seeking power, a trio worth considering comprises Vladito, Springer, and Varsho. Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s power may have dipped this season, but his road performance with an .854 OPS remains formidable. George Springer, a versatile hitter, boasts an .803 OPS against both righties and lefties. Daulton Varsho brings a combination of power and stolen bases, making him a valuable DFS asset, especially in away games.
Boston Red Sox: Exploiting Jordan Lyles
The Boston Red Sox face off against Jordan Lyles and the Kansas City Royals, offering a promising DFS stack opportunity. Lyles, with a career ERA of 5.24 and a current season ERA of 6.51, is certainly a target for stacking. His struggles are highlighted by allowing a staggering 2.09 homers per nine innings and a modest 6.13 strikeouts per nine.
Rafael Devers is a standout player against righties, showcasing a .924 OPS since 2021. While his home performance is solid, his .870 OPS on the road adds to his appeal. Justin Turner, a consistent performer, has an impressive .966 OPS over the last three weeks, making him a prime choice for stacking.
Triston Casas contributes power to the Red Sox lineup with a .366 OBP and 21 homers. His .962 OPS over the last three weeks and a career .852 OPS against righties position him as a strong DFS option. Adam Duvall’s recent hot streak, with 7 home runs in 10 games, further solidifies his status as a must-play player.
Chicago White Sox: Leveraging Southpaw Matchups
Despite a challenging season, the Chicago White Sox offer intriguing DFS stacking potential. Their hitters’ success against southpaws is evident, with six players showcasing above-average wRC+ since 2021. Three of these hitters even exceed a 120 wRC+.
Eduardo Rodriguez, the opposing pitcher, hasn’t been in top form lately, making the White Sox stack more appealing. This combination of advantageous matchups and cap-friendly salaries makes the White Sox stack a strategic choice for DFS players seeking value.
Baltimore Orioles: Targeting Weak Pitching
The Baltimore Orioles are positioned for a strong showing against Zach Davies of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Davies carries a 6.93 ERA this season, consistent with his 5.33 ERA over the past three years. His vulnerability is further underscored by his high walk rate of over 3.50 batters per nine.
Anthony Santander stands out with his impressive season, boasting a .350 wOBA, 26 home runs, and a .235 ISO through 125 games. Gunnar Henderson, a standout rookie, has contributed across the board with 22 home runs, 77 runs, and 65 RBIs. Cedric Mullins adds power and stolen bases to the Orioles lineup, making him a strong stacking candidate.
Atlanta Braves: Capitalizing on Julio Urias’ Vulnerabilities
Despite Julio Urias’ recent groove, his season has been marked by inconsistency. With a 4.41 ERA, 3.96 xERA, and 4.06 xFIP, Urias’ performance opens up stacking opportunities against him. The Atlanta Braves, armed with a high-octane offense, are particularly adept at capitalizing on lefties, leading in wRC+ (139) and ISO (.240) against them in 2023.
The Braves’ dominant form extends to recent weeks, ranking third in wRC+ (138) and second in ISO (.223) over the past 30 days. Their performance on the road, highlighted by a wRC+ of 123 and ISO of .215, further solidifies their stacking potential.
As you prepare for the exciting MLB DFS action on Friday, September 1st, 2023, keep these top stacks in mind for optimizing your lineup. Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, and Baltimore Orioles offer enticing opportunities based on favorable matchups, player strengths, and recent performances.
