MLB DFS has a 7 game slate on SuperDraft! These are the early Top SuperDraft MLB DFS Picks. Be sure to dive into the MLB DFS Rankings, Cores for Cash, and GPP from our MLB coaches afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall MLB DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.
Dustin May comes in as the highest projected pitcher in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 66.28. May has a matchup against Colorado with an implied run total of 2.79. In his career, May has been elite allowing only an ISO of .133 and a wOBA of .285 per the MLB Study Hub Pitcher Matchups. May should dominate the Colorado lineup.
Dustin May will not be 2x for long and I will take advantage of that multiplier while I can. May will be in my Cash lineup and in my GPP core.
Lance McCullers comes in as the fourth-highest projected pitcher in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 44.75. McCullers has been dominant through two starts allowing just 2 runs over 10 innings and striking out 13 hitters. I expect McCullers to rack up the strikeouts which he has done since 2018 at a 26.3% clip per the MLB Study Hub Pitcher Matchups.
McCullers could go overlooked and he offers a solid floor at 1.6x. He is in play for Cash and GPPs for me.
The Orioles come in as the second-highest projected stack in the MLB Study Hub SuperDraft Stacks facing Justin Dunn with an implied run total of 5.04. In Dunn’s limited sample, he has shown that he struggles with command posting a BB% of 17.5% and allowing an ISO of .204 per the MLB Study Hub Pitcher Matchups. I expect Baltimore to get runners on and capitalize on the long ball in this spot.
I’ll be focusing on Cedric Mullins, Trey Mancini, Ryan Mountcastle, and Anthony Santander.
The Braves come in as the sixth-highest projected stack in the MLB Study Hub SuperDraft Stacks facing Nick Neidert with an implied run total of 5.27. Neidert is not an overpowering pitcher striking out only 4 hitters in 8 1/3 innings in 2021 and Atlanta has a lot of power in their lineup. Atlanta has posted a .328 wOBA and a .172 ISO against right-handers per the MLB Study Hub SuperDraft Stacks.
I’m focusing on Travis d’Aranud, Dansby Swanson, Ronald Acuna Jr., and Freddie Freeman.
Jordan Luplow comes in as the fifteenth-highest projected hitter in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 13.39. Luplow is a lefty-killer posting an ISO of .335 and a wOBA of .419 since 2018 per the MLB Study Hub Batter Matchups. He faves Carlos Rodon who may be a popular pitcher in tournaments which presents us with an opportunity for leverage. I expect Luplow to crush today and be lower-owned than he should be.

The MLB DFS Core Builds are also referred to as our MLB DFS Building Blocks. Each staff member identifies the core players they would build their Cash or GPP lineup around for both DraftKings and FanDuel. These MLB DFS Picks are basically the Building Blocks of their MLB DFS Lineups.
The MLB Strategy Notebook gives our staff a place to write notes specific to each slate for members to read regarding strategy for each slate. They will mention which stacks they are targeting, which players make more sense for GPP formats over Cash formats and other lineup building tidbits!
The MLB DFS Picks and Pools for GPP’s is crucial for Single Entry players. This list of priority picks are players with slate-winning upside each night. They aren’t just the top projected players, they are picks that take into consideration the Rise or Fall ownership projection, tournament leverage, and daily fantasy baseball roster construction.
The MLB Stacks will display the top stacks of the day using the data from the MLB Study Hub! This will display what teams project the best, which will be higher owned, and a player-by-player breakdown to show which players could be going overlooked.
