MLB DFS has a 14 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.
Zach Eflin comes in as the highest projected pitcher in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 60.10 in a matchup against St. Louis with an implied run total of 3.56. Eflin is a feast or famine type of pitcher due to his struggles with command. Per the MLB Study Hub, Eflin has limited hitters to a .186 ISO since 2018.
Projections love Eflin but, his floor makes him a GPP-only target for me tonight.
Frankie Montas comes in as the second-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 59.39 in a matchup against Detroit with an implied run total of 3.45. Per the MLB Study Hub, Montas has limited opposing hitters to a .313 wOBA and a .157 ISO since 2018. Detroit’s lineup should cool down in a pitcher-friendly ballpark in Oakland and Montas should log 5-6 innings tonight.
Motas is someone I’ll look to in Cash games and he will be in my GPP pool.
The A’s come in as the second-highest projected SuperDraft stack in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections. They have a matchup against Jose Urena with an implied run total of 5.05. Urena is a pitcher that struggles with command which should lead to plenty of baserunners for Oakland. Per the MLB Study Hub, Oakland sports a hard hit rate of 38.6% and a wOBA of .329 in this matchup.
I’ll be focusing on Ramon Laureano, Mark Canha, Matt Chapman, and Sean Murphy.
The Giants come in as the fifth-highest projected SuperDraft stack in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections. The Giants are facing Daniel Castano with an implied run total of 4.43. Castano is not an overpowering arm as he posted just 12 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings in 2020. San Francisco comes into today’s matchup with a wOBA of .332 and an ISO of .164. There are some great multipliers to take advantage of in the Giants lineup.
I’m focusing on Austin Slater, Darin Ruf, Evan Longoria, and Donovan Solano.
D.J. Stewart comes in as the fifteenth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall MLB Projections at 16.96. Stewart gets a matchup against Mike Foltynewicz which will allow Stewart to have the platoon advantage and Stewart has plenty of home run upside against a fastball pitcher. Per the MLB Study Hub, Stewart has a .177 ISO and a 39.5% flyball rate in this matchup. I’m looking for Stewart to come up with ducks on the pond and capitalize with an extra-base hit.

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.
