Your DFS Hitting Picks and Top Stacks for Saturday.
First Base – Daniel Murphy, Colorado Rockies
DraftKings – $4,300, FanDuel – $3,700
Tanner Roark struggles a ton against lefties and Daniel Murphy is an above average hitter and we get the Coors Field boost here for DFS Hitting.
Second Base – Whit Merrifield, Kansas City Royals
DraftKings – $4,200, FanDuel – $3,600
I love how Merrifield is hitting right now, he’s on fire. He gets a lefty, and he is a career .310 hitter vs. them. There is always a stolen base threat here also.
Shortstop – Elvis Andrus, Texas Rangers
DraftKings – $4,400, FanDuel – $3,800
Elvis Andrus is always a very solid DFS Hitting play at home and I love him more against lefties. Wade Miley isn’t going to strike out a ton, so the ball will be put in play here with the Texas air boost.
Third Base – Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies
DraftKings – $4,900, FanDuel – $4,400
Nolan Arenado at under $5,000 on DraftKings is a crime. Tanner Roark is mediocre and I think Nolan takes him deep in Coors.
Outfield – Charlie Blackmon, Colorado Rockies
DraftKings – $5,500, FanDuel – $4,600
As one of the hottest hitters in baseball, Blackmon is my favorite DFS Hitting plays on the slate. Roark cannot get lefties out and Blackmon has been very hot overall.
Outfield – Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels
DraftKings – $5,200, FanDuel – $4,800
Mike Trout against a lefty at home? Gimme gimme. Wade LeBlanc is a terrible pitcher and Mike Trout is the best player in the league. Don’t overthink it.
Outfield – Avisail Garcia, Tampa Bay Rays
DraftKings – $4,600, FanDuel – $3,200
Until the day I no longer play DFS I will play Garcia against a lefty. He is my favorite DFS Hitting one off in tournaments every time a southpaw takes the rubber against him.
DFS Hitting Stacks
1.) Colorado Rockies
Tanner Roark is very very bad against left handed bats (.290 BAA, .531 SLG). We get the Coors Field effect here and a terrible pitcher on the mound. Give me all the lefties plus Nolan Arenado. Charlie Blackmon, Daniel Murphy, and David Dahl. There’s no reason why they shouldn’t be the highest scoring team on the slate.
2.) Texas Rangers
Outside of his home stadium, Wade Miley has been horrible. He holds a 4.56 ERA and a .250 BAA. He has been worse against right handed bats and that’s who I want to target with DFS Hitting Stacks. I also love Joey Gallo as he MASHES left handed pitching in Texas. Miley is going to be in for a bad night here.
