This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s six-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.
MLB DFS Stack: Seattle Mariners
vs. RHP Edwin Jackson (DET): 5.50 Runs
It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to go after our favorite fantasy pitcher, Edwin Jackson. He has been downright bad this season, owning a 9.35 ERA, 8.23 FIP, and 5.69 SIERA. He is pitching for the worst team in baseball. The Tigers have a run differential of -233 so I can see this one getting out of hand quickly. Detroit also ranks 27th in terms of bullpen efficiency, so when Jackson comes out I expect the runs to continue to pour. The Mariners are not at their best, slashing to a .295 wOBA, .123 ISO, and 86 WRC+. Despite the poor hitting averages, the Mariners are poised to break out of their hitting slump with a gravy starting pitcher and bullpen matchup.
Preferred Stack:Daniel Vogelbach ($3900 FD|$4300 DK), Domingo Santana ($3300 FD|$4400 DK), Mallex Smith ($3300 FD|$4200 DK), and J.P. Crawford ($3200 FD|$3800 DK). Omar Narvaez ($2600 FD|$4200 DK) for catcher on DK. Kyle Seager ($3400 FD|$4100 DK) and Austin Nola ($2700 FD|$3700 DK) for value.
MLB DFS Stack: Atlanta Braves
vs. LHP Steven Matz (NYM): 5.50 Runs
The Braves will likely draw a nice chunk of ownership as they have been hitting well over the last month and it is a pretty small slate. They are slashing to a .331 wOBA, .181 ISO, and 101 WRC+. Steven Matz is on the mound and has massive struggles away from home, allowing hitters to slash to a .381 wOBA, .573 SLG, and .362 OBP. He has allowed 42 earned runs and 16 home runs in 55 innings pitched during that span. He owns a 4.49 ERA, 4.72 FIP, and 4.46 SIERA. His 47% GB rate coupled with a .315 BABIP should set the Braves up nicely for some extra base hits tonight.
Preferred Plays: Freddie Freeman ($4300 FD|$5600 DK), Ozzie Albies ($3700 FD|$5200 DK), Ronald Acuna Jr. ($4500 FD|$5700 DK), and Josh Donaldson ($3500 FD|$4700 DK). Ender Inciarte ($2700 FD|$3900 DK)and Adam Duvall ($2800 FD|$4200 DK). serve as good value plays.
