MLB DFS Hitter Stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel for 06/30/2022 – Win Daily Sports
Published11 months ago
Welcome to the Thursday edition of the Stack City, where I’ll be going through the top MLB DFS Stacks on DraftKings and Fanduel.
Depending on the site you play on, you’ll either have a 7 games slate of MLB DFS on DraftKings or a 5-game slate on Fanduel. Either way, we have some really solid options for bats tonight
Always make sure to read Adam’s Starting Rotation when setting your lineup. It’s hands down the best pitching article in the MLB DFS business.
Let’s dig in and see if we can find some stacks to use today!
MLB DFS Stacks – Main
Tampa Bay Rays vs. Yusei Kikuchi
We’re going old school today and stacking the Rays. While the Rays of 2022 are nothing like the Rays of 2021, they still have some nice pieces to the lineup and got one of their main pieces back this week in Wander Franco. The Rays get a phenomenal matchup tonight vs. Yusei Kikuchi. To say that Kikuchi has struggled of late would be quite an understatement.
If we look at what he’s been able to accomplish over the last month, it’s quite remarkable. In just 15 innings of work (he’s had a short leash), Kikuchi has given up 9 homers and an insane number of barrels at 14. Hitters have a 46% flyball rate and a 54% hard-hit rate. He’s been bad, and we’ll want to take advantage of that. To put it mildly, righties have had their way with Kikuchi this year and that’s where we’ll want to focus our efforts. Righties have a .550 slugging % and a .407 wOBA vs. Kikuchi in 2022.
We’ll start this stack off with Randy Arozarena. Arozarena is a haven for fantasy goodness. He went 0-2 yesterday but still managed to score 16 DK points thanks to his legs and his 2 SB. That’s now 5 SB in his last 3 games and 17 for the year. Over his last 4 games, Aroz has scored at least 16 DK points 3 times. There’s no reason to think he can’t go off in a matchup vs. a pitcher struggling right now.
Next up will be Isaac Paredes. While he’s cooled off over the last 2 games, he’s still in a great spot vs. Kikuchi. Over the last 30 days, Paredes has had an ISO of .591 vs. lefties. The only reason that I can think to fade Paredes tonight is that he’ll probably have exaggerated ownership and you hope that he’ll get a goose egg tonight.
Other bats that I really like here will be Wander Franco, Harold Ramirez, and Yandy Diaz.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Drew Rasmussen
Tonight could be somewhat of a perfect storm brewing for the Blue Jays. They’re facing off against a pitcher in Drew Rasmussen that plays extremely well into their hands. Rasmussen is a reverse splits pitcher, especially away from the comfy confines of Tropicana Field. On the road this season, Rasmussen has allowed a pretty high slugging % of .604 to righties. 4 of the 7 homers he’s allowed this season have been against righties on the road.
Tonight, he’s facing off against one of the top teams in the league against righties. Over the last 30 days, the projected lineup for the Blue Jays tonight has a .202 ISO and a .345 wOBA against righties. The stars seem to be aligning for a monster night from the Blue Jays.
I’m starting off my Blue Jays stack with Alejandro Kirk. Kirk has been arguably the Blue Jays’ best hitter over the last month or so. Over the last month, Kirk has a .521 wOBA vs. righties and a .375 ISO. Since June 21, he’s had an explosion of power. He has 4 homers over that stretch and has also driven or scored 17 runs. He’s been the main part of this offense and should continue to smash tonight.
Next up I’m going to look at Matt Chapman. Chapman has been an underrated part of this offense recently. He has hits in 6 of his last 7 games and some of those games have seen him just fill the box score. Over the last week, Chapman has 8 RBI and has scored 5 runs. At just $4k, he’s considerably cheaper than his teammates and is going to provide a similar upside.
I’m also going to look at Vlad Guerrero, George Springer, Teoscar Hernandez, and Santiago Espinal.
Milwaukee Brewers vs. JT Brubaker
The Brewers train heads to Pittsburgh tonight with JT Brubaker in its path. The Brewers’ offense is rolling right now and we’ll want to make sure we use them in our stacks until they either face a good pitcher or cool off. Since they don’t face a good pitcher tonight, they are 100% in play. While Brubaker hasn’t been too bad, he’s still someone that won’t be able to just shut down an offense rolling.
Over the last week, this Brewers offense has scored less than 5 runs just once, and in that game they still scored 4 runs. With Brubaker, we want to focus on the lefties. At PNC Park this year, Brubaker has given up a .471 slugging % to lefties and the Brewers have some lefties that smash.
The first Brewers playing I’m going to use in my stack will be Rowdy Tellez. Tellez is hot right now and his current swing path has him hitting bombs. Over the last 3 games, Tellez has 2 multi-homer games. When he’s locked in like he is right now, you’ll want to use him. At just $3.5k on DK tonight, he’s actually a value piece that has the potential to have the most points out of anyone on the slate. He’ll be popular and fading him is on the table, but he’s hot and in a great matchup.
Next up is my favorite Brewers play of all time, Jace Peterson. Jace is always cheap, under-owned, and in my lineups when I stack the Brewers against an average righty. He’s made me a pretty penny over the last couple of years and will do so again tonight. He’s riding a 5-game hitting streak currently and will make it 6 after tonight. He homered yesterday and can absolutely do it again tonight. He’s also only $2.5k on DK tonight and gives you all the salary flexibility you’ll want.
Other guys I like here are going to be Christian Yelich, Willy Adames, and Kolten Wong.
MLB DFS Summary
Other stacks I like tonight will be the Phillies vs. Ian Anderson, Pirates vs. Jason Alexander, and Reds vs. Kyle Hendricks.
Good luck and hope to see you in the green.
