This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s eight-game main slate. I will also include my favorite pitching picks.
**All plays are listed in order of preference. Please check back between 5-6 PM EST as some players can receive rest days or get limited at bats especially as we get closer to the postseason. Make sure you are watching the weather as well.
Daily Fantasy Stack: Minnesota Twins
vs. LHP J.A. Happ (NYY): 5.30 Runs
J.A. Happ has had some issues this season to say the very least. He rolls into tonight’s game carrying a 4.86 ERA, 5.11 FIP, and 4.64 SIERA. Those are some of the worst averages Happ has ever posted over his career. Happ has struggled vs. both sides, allowing batters to slash to a .335 wOBA, .476 SLG, and .320 OBP. The only drawback I can see is Happ’s home/road splits. He has been significantly better on the road with batters slashing to a .286 wOBA, .380 SLG, and .281 OBP. Given how much power Minnesota is showing recently, I highly doubt Happ will have a dominant road performance. The Twins are slashing to a .316 wOBA, .277 ISO, and 95 WRC+ over the last two weeks
Preferred Stack:Max Kepler ($3700 FD|$5200 DK), Eddie Rosario ($3800 FD|$5100 DK), Nelson Cruz ($4100 FD|$4400 DK), Miguel Sano ($3600 FD|$4500 DK), and Mitch Garver ($3600 FD|$5100 DK)
Daily Fantasy Stack: Los Angeles Dodgers
vs. RHP Jamie Barria (LAA): 5.55 Runs
We have a small sample size to go off of with Barria, but there is no doubt he has struggled. He carries a 7.36 ERA, 4.62 FIP, and 4.33 SIERA over 33 innings pitched. Barria is allowing batters to slash to a .383 wOBA, .541 SLG, and .361 OBP. He has allowed 27 earned runs and six home runs thus far. The Dodgers are absolutely hammering right-handed pitching right now. They are slashing to a massive .430 wOBA, .368 ISO, and 172 WRC+ over the last two weeks.
Preferred Plays: Max Muncy ($4100 FD|$5100 DK), Joc Pederson ($3600 FD|$4600 DK, and Cody Bellinger ($4700 FD|$5800 DK). Alex Verdugo ($3000 FD|$4200 DK) and A.J. Pollock ($3700 FD|$4400 DK) for differentia
Daily Fantasy Stack: Atlanta Braves
vs. RHP Brad Keller (KCR): 5.60 Runs
Preferred Plays:Josh Donaldson ($4000 FD|$5100 DK), Freddie Freeman ($4000 FD|$5300 DK), Ronald Acuna Jr. ($4300 FD|$5700 DK), and Ozzie Albies ($3400 FD|$4300 DK).
