8/25 DFS Hitting and Stacks

Published

on

It’s been a B-Dub Weekend, so let’s close out the weekend with the 8/25 DFS Hitting and Stacks and add little more of the long green that several of our WDS crew have added to their bank accounts.

Eleven games dot the bulk of the schedule, but the later starts do offer a gem or two.

8/25 DFS Hitting Catcher

Omar Navarez, SEA vs. TOR

DK ($4,600), FD ($2,500)

Navarez gets the decisive edge as the lefty bat going against Clay Buchholz, who comes off the DL. Navarez has homered in both games this weekend and has thrived at home, going .295/.365/.494 with 11 of his 19 homers coming at Petco Park. I’ll trust in his 40.2% fly ball rate versus a hurler who allowed five homers in 24 innings before going on the DL in early May.

8/25 DFS Hitting First Baseman

Jose Abreu, CWS vs. TEX

DK ($4,600), FD ($4,000)

A six-game hitting streak that has seen Abreu score at least once in five of those games is one reason I’m looking at the Pale Hose slugger today. Abreu is more productive in the daytime, sporting a .855 OPS with 10 homers. Oddly enough, he’s stolen both of his bases in the natural light. Rangers rookie hurler Brock Burke makes his second big league, but both you and the lefty should know Abreu has gone .353/.393/.603 (.996 OPS) with eight homers and 25 ribbies against southpaws.

8/25 DFS Hitting Second Baseman

Jose Altuve, HOU vs. LAA

DK ($5,100), FD ($4,000)

Altuve has scored at least one run in seven of his last eight games and has consecutive multi-hit games. Angels starter Jaime Barria has given up four hits in nine at-bats against Altuve with a .990 OPS against. Altuve is also riding the wave of a career-high .245 Isolated Power, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he takes Barria deep today. If so, he will equal his career-best with 24 homers. He’d be a good anchor in a 8/25 DFS Hitting and Stacks lineup leaning heavily with Astros.

8/25 DFS Hitting Shortstop

Francisco Lindor, CLE vs. KC

DK ($5,200), FD ($4,300)

The Royals brought up Eric Skoglund for today’s start, which probably made Lindor sleep like a kid on Christmas Eve. Lindor has just four career at-bats against Skoglund, but he’s hit a pair of homers and stolen a pair of bases off the KC southpaw. Lindor hasn’t been lights out of late, but does have at least one hit in nine of his last 10 and owns Royals pitching to the tune of .400/.425/.686 with four homers, 10 RBI and 15 runs scored. The Indians have been brimming with stack potential all weekend, and today looks great for them to anchor the 8/25 Hitting and Stacks with Lindor leading the way.

8/25 DFS Hitting Third Baseman

Alex Bregman, HOU vs. LAA

DK ($5,200), FD ($4,200)

With six hits in his last 11 at-bats, Bregman is a solid choice here and a potential anchor of an Astros stack. Bregman has three homers and nine RBI over the past week and his .405/.500/.824 August that includes six homers, 26 RBI and 20 runs scored has put him strongly in the AL MVP conversation. His 44.9% fly ball rate blends well with his 44.2% hard contact rate, while his 18.5% HR/FB rate continues to take a sneaky climb.

8/25 DFS Hitting Outfielder

Willie Calhoun, TEX vs. CWS

DK ($4,900), FD ($3,800)

Oh, why not? Saturday’s homer was his second straight game with a dinger and his fourth this week. Calhoun has eight homers this month while continuing his road-dominant trend (.946 OPS). He’ll face Reynaldo Lopez, who appears to have reacquired the home run bug after going three straight starts without giving one up. Lopez allowed a pair in his start against the Twins on Tuesday, shooting his HR/9 up to 1.65. That, plus his 44.9% fly ball rate, makes Lopez a potential mark for Calhoun to exploit today.

8/25 DFS Hitting Outfielder

Juan Soto, WAS at CHC

DK ($5,100), FD ($4,000)

Soto has picked apart Cubs pitching the way Clubber Lang picked apart Rocky Balboa in their first match in Rocky III (“Come on, Balboa! Make me wait!!). He’s gone .421/.522/.737 with a 1.259 OPS that’s produced a homer, five RBI and eight runs scored in just 19 at-bats this season. Soto has a 1.083 OPS this month with nine homers, so there’s no reason to fear using him against Cole Hamels. No one has done much to stop the Nationals’ offense of late, and I don’t see where Hamels neutralizes them today.

8/25 DFS Hitting Outfielder

Aaron Judge, NYY at LAD

DK ($7,200), FD ($3,800)

Consider this my move off the top rope: either this finishes the match or the momentum swings. Judge has never faced Clayton Kershaw, but Clayton Kershaw has never faced Judge, who has homered in each of the first two games of the series. Judge has three homers this week after entering it with just one dinger this month. For all of his Hall of Fame potential, Kershaw should know that Judge has an 1.121 OPS versus lefties this season and can be a beast with the lights on (.929 OPS at night). This matchup alone makes Sunday Night Baseball must-watch.

8/25 DFS Hitting Stacks

8/25 Hitting Stack of the Day: Cleveland Indians: As mentioned earlier, I’d start a stack with Lindor and plug in Franmil Reyes (a cheap $2,500 at FanDuel) along with Carlos Santana ($5,400 at DraftKings) and perhaps Yasiel Puig ($4,400 DK).

8/25 Hitting Stack Runner-Up: Houston Astros: As usual, they’re pricey, so you can’t load up in a big way. Altuve or Bregman are good anchors along with Yordan Alvarez ($5,500 DK). You should be able to find a low-end bat like Josh Reddick ($2,400 FD) or Martin Maldonado ($3,000 DK).

8/25 Hitting Stack to Consider: St. Louis Cardinals: The Rockies are throwing Antonio Senzatela and his 6.29 ERA. I like Paul Goldschmidt ($4,200 DK) at the anchor that includes Tommy Edman ($4,200 DK), Dexter Fowler ($3,200 FD) and Marcell Ozuna ($5,000 DK).
