MLB DFS Hitter Stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 7/24/2022

Published

on

Welcome to the Sunday edition of the Stack City, where I’ll be going through the top MLB DFS Stacks on DraftKings and Fanduel. 

We’ve got identical nine-game main slates on DK and FD, both starting at 1:35 PM EST. Six of those nine games have projected totals over 9 runs, including eight teams with individual projected totals higher than 4.8 runs. So we should have plenty of options today on a slate that also has a couple of clear-cut aces — which we know from reading Adam’s Starting Rotation article to help narrow down our pool of viable SPs.

Now it’s time to get to the stacks and build that bankroll!

MLB DFS Hitter Stacks – 1:35 PM EST

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox Game Stack

We’re only a couple of days removed from the weird football score 28-5 game, so it’s fresh in the minds of MLB DFS participants. The Jays have the pitching edge here, so we’re probably looking at a 4-2 TOR-BOS or 4-3 TOR-BOS (or more) in most of our builds. Red Sox starter Brayan Bello hasn’t given up a home run in his two starts, but he has been knocked around pretty good by the Rays, yielding 5 and 4 ER in his two 4.0 IP appearances. And his pitch repertoire of fastball-slider-change plays right into the strengths of this Jays lineup.

Let’s begin with a player pool of George Springer, Alejandro Kirk, Vladimir Guerrero, Teoscar Hernandez and Matt Chapman, who’s really heating up at the plate. We’ll have to choose between catchers Danny Jansen and Kirk on DK, but using both on FD in a wraparound 9-1-2-3 stack could be a sneaky move. Bo Bichette is a solid option but expensive, and we can always find room for Lourdes Gurriel, Jr. and Santiago Espinal if we can’t afford the aforementioned bats.

As for the Red Sox, I’m most interested in leadoff hitter Jarren Duran, Xander Bogaerts, Alex Verdugo and the very affordable Bobby Dalbec, who is 1B/3B eligible on DK. Dalbec may benefit from these hot-and-humid hitting conditions and stiff winds blowing out to left-center; he should smack at least one out of the park today.

Atlanta Braves vs. Reid Detmers

Once again, we get to use the Atlanta Braves vs. a lefthander. This bunch now has a 118 wRC+ vs. LHP — the third-highest mark among MLB teams after the White Sox and Yankees.

I’ll start my stacks out with Ronald Acuna, Matt Olson, Austin Riley, Dansby Swanson, and William Contreras, if he gets the start. I’m partial to Adam Duvall over Marcell Ozuna vs. LHP, and while there’s not much salary relief to speak of among this lineup, Duvall and Orlando Arcia are the cheapest two hitters in there.

Like the Yankees, it’s a bunch that we don’t want to ignore on a slate with plenty of obvious MLB DFS stacking options — largely because of the massive upside that’s baked into their salaries. If you can find a way to get a few Braves stacks and fund the SPs to allow it to happen, I can’t argue against it.

New York Yankees vs. Dean Kremer

Once again, we get to see the Yankees at possible lower ownership facing a pitcher who’s benefited from relatively few long balls (just three in 41.2 IP this season). Kremer is carrying a 2.59 ERA, 3.60 FIP and 4.63 xFIP — who means he should be poised for a regression in the coming weeks, a time that will likely be marked by a HR/FB rate well over the 5.5% mark he’s currently boasting.

Last week we discussed how the Bronx Bombers can rarely called a sleeper stack, and that even in tough matchups they are capable of dropping double-digit run totals. While I’m not focusing all my builds around them, I think it’s a mistake not to have some exposure to them on a slate where they could still be the highest scoring team.

D.J. LeMahieu and Aaron Judge just keep getting on base, and today’s projected 3-7 hitters are all power-plus guys. Anthony Rizzo (22), Giancarlo Stanton (24), Gleyber Torres (15), Matt Carpenter (13) and Aaron Hicks (6) have combined for 80 home runs of their own this season, and they’re all in play, some at a discount. In 106 plate appearances for the Yankees, Carpenter has a .512 ISO. The next closest ISO this season with at least 100 PA is Yordan Alvarez (.365), followed by Judge (.351).

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chad Kuhl

You’d expect a Rockies’ pitcher to post better numbers on the road, but Kuhl actually does poorly away from Coors, sporting a .355 road wOBA that’s relatively equal vs. righties and lefties. The Brewers, with four left-handed bats among their projected 1-7 hitters, do a considerable amount of damage to RHP.

Those four include Christian Yelich, Kolten Wong, Rowdy Tellez and catcher Omar Narvaez, but I have plenty of interest in using Willy Adames and Andrew McCutcheon here as well. I’m not anticipating that much ownership for this bunch considering the TOR-BOS game and another viable spot to stack the Yankees and/or Braves. But the individual team total is the third highest of the slate and they make for an excellent GPP pivot at a decent value.

Also consider:

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Kris Bubic: Remember when we used to pick on Bubic? Well, we’re still doing that, based on his ERA/FIP over 5 and the strengths of this Rays lineup. The best options are Ji-Man Choi, Taylor Walls, Yandy Diaz, Josh Isaac Paredes, a cheap catcher option in Christian Bethancourt, and Randy Arozarena.

Cardinals at Reds (Game Stack #2): This game has a 9.5 total and boasts a slew of value options among both lineups in the $2-4K range that could help offset the bigger salaries of our featured stacks. The big bopper are in play, but I’m looking more at guys like Nolan Gorman ($3,100) and Brendan Donovan ($3,000) for STL and the 4-8 hitters in Cincy: Joey Votto ($3,100), Donovan Solano ($2,600), Kyle Farmer ($3,200), Tyler Naquin ($3,800) and Nick Senzel ($2,400).

I'm a writer from upstate NY in a cool little Hudson River town called Coxsackie. Too many interests to list, but the films of David Lynch, the books of Kurt Vonnegut, the music of Jack White and the maddening sport of golf are near the top of my list. Big into DFS, specializing in baseball, football, golf and hoops. I've written for FFToday.com, RotoExperts and Baseball America, to name a few.
