This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s nine-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.
Teams with Highest IRT
MLB DFS Team Stack: Colorado Rockies
vs. RHP Hector Noesi (MIA): 7.80 Runs
I hope all of you considered my advice yesterday when I said to fade Coors. Three runs from the Rockies isn’t a good fantasy output but that brings us to today. I am all over the Rockies. They face Hector Noesi, who has struggled with his splits his entire career. He has only pitched 11 innings this season, but owns a 8.18 ERA, 7.58 FIP, and 5.29 SIERA. He struggles where we need him to, allowing right handed batters to slash to a .387 wOBA, .640 SLG, and .321 OBP. Limited sample, but even in years past Noesi has always struggled to righties. The Rockies are slashing to a .338 wOBA, .196 ISO and 92 WRC+, just above their season averages. I will have a nice chunk of exposure to the Rockies tonight.
Preferred Stack:Trevor Story ($4500 FD|$5700 DK) , Charlie Blackmon ($4700 FD|$5700 DK), Nolan Arenado ($4600 FD|$5300 DK), RyanMcMahon ($3700 FD|$4700 DK). Also consider: Dom Nunez ($3000 FD|$3700 DK) and Raimel Tapia ($3300 FD|$4500 DK).
MLB DFS Team Stack: Boston Red Sox
vs. RHP Asher Wojciechowski (BAL): 7.00 Runs
Last night I faded Coors for Boston and it worked out pretty well. Today I will be doing the exact opposite and will be fading Boston. I’m not saying they aren’t in a good spot, cause it is the Orioles and their bullpen is awful as we all know. I’m not inclined to attack Wojcie with his respectable 27.5% K rate, although he has struggled in recent outings. My hope is the Coors letdown yesterday will drive ownership down and people will gravitate to this game instead. The Red Sox are hovering right around their season averages, slashing to a .349 wOBA, .217 ISO, and 113 WRC+ for the month of August.
Preferred Plays: Xander Bogaerts ($4200 FD|$5100 DK), Rafael Devers ($4400 FD|$5600 DK), and Mookie Betts ($4100 FD|$5200 DK), and Andrew Benintendi ($3700 FD|$4500 DK)
MLB DFS Team Stack: Minnesota Twins**
vs. RHP Ariel Jurado (TEX): 6.50 Runs
Did somebody say two Coors Fields in one slate? I am all over the Twins tonight. An excellent hitting park, a bad pitcher, and one of the best hitting teams in the league that are slashing to a .349 wOBA, .230 ISO, and 114 WRC+ for the month of August. Ariel Jurado is one of, if not the worst pitcher on tonight’s slate. Jurado owns a 5.31 ERA, 4.80 FIP, and 4.96 SIERA. He has a 44% GB rate coupled with a .314 BABIP. Jurado also has the lowest K rate on the slate at 17% and he is facing the fourth best team in MLB in terms of strikeout percentage. It’s a hot one in Texas today, folks. Load up on the MIN bats.
Preferred Plays:Max Kepler ($4000 FD|$5100 DK), Eddie Rosario ($4000 FD|$5400 DK), Luis Arraez ($3100 FD|$4800 DK), and Miguel Sano ($3500 FD|$5400 DK). Also consider: Jorge Polanco ($3800 FD|$4900 DK) and Jason Castro ($2700 FD|$4000).
Other Teams I Have Interest in
MLB DFS Team Stack: San Francisco Giants**
vs. RHP Taylor Clarke (ARI): 4.85 Runs
Preferred Plays:Alex Dickerson ($3200 FD|$5500 DK), Mike Yastrzemski ($3300 FD|$4800 DK), and Stephen Vogt ($2700 FD|$3600 DK). Also consider: Evan Longoria ($3200 FD|$4400 DK) and Kevin Pillar ($3400 FD|$4300 DK).
