Well we have a Coors game on the schedule tonight. No MLB DFS stacking article would not be complete without a Coors mention when they play there. One thing we will have to watch is if the grieving Angels decide to play tonight or not. Who can blame them if they do not play tonight?
Stack One to Consider:
Rockies/Astros: I almost automatically lump the Coors game together in this article and in cash games. I chose bats and possibly a DFS stack from a Coors game almost subconsciously. According to ESPN’s park factors Coors has shot up to the top two or three in every major statistical category that they measure. This is common, exactly where Coors should be found in a list of parks.
To Coors or not to Coors? That is the question tonight in my mind as we have a highly touted rookie pitcher from the Astros (Jose Urquidy, $5,500 FD, not available on DK) against a very good Rockies pitcher (German Marquez $7,100 FD, $8,700 DK). Marquez fares much better on the road than he does at home (.314 batting average against at home vs. 201 away, 5.70 home ERA, 3.06 road ERA, nine HRs allowed at home in 53.2 innings, six HRs allowed in 61.2 road innings). How heavy do we stack this Coors game, or do we do use a few bats here and look for smash spots in other places? This is my first stack choice, so there is your answer.
Stack Two to Consider:
Athletics: Here is my sneaky stack for today. I like them because as good as Jake Odorizzi was in April and May, he was as bad in June. After a sparkling 0.94 ERA in May, Odorizzi allowed 11 earned runs over 15 1/3 innings in his past three appearances. He has also allowed four homers over that span, matching his total from his first 13 starts. This is certainly not a top stack, but a sneaky one tonight being in Oakland (a pitcher’s park) and in a late game. At least one guy I want is Khris Davis ($3,200 FD, $3,500 DK) IF he is back in the lineup after dealing with a bruised hand from a hit-by-pitch. For a guy who has led the AL in HRs, those prices are low.

Stack Three to Consider:
White Sox: Another different stack, so just hear me out please. Matthew Boyd has a problem, a big problem. And it is something that “Chicks Dig” according to commercials in the 90s. No, the problem is not steroids or sharing needles wise guy. The problem is the long ball. He has allowed three homers in both of his past two starts. If this problem continues, in a park that is giving up HRs this year (4th best park for HRs according to ESPN), with the wind blowing out, high dewpoints and warm temperatures, then you could take advantage of Boyd’s problem.
