This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s seven-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 stay up to date with all our favorite plays on our Premium Gold DFS Cheat Sheet as well.
Teams with Highest IRT
MLB GPP Stack: Milwaukee Brewers
vs. RHP Adam Wainwright (STL): 5.10 Runs
The Brewers and Yankees will likely be your most popular stacks on this short slate and for good reason. Wainwright struggles a lot with left handed batters on the road. They are slashing to a tune of .414 wOBA, .610 SLG, and .423 OBP over 24.2 innings pitched. He has allowed 24 earned runs and five homers over that span. Wainwright is a big time ground ball pitcher at near a 50% clip of batted balls. He faces a team with three players in the top 15 in terms of flyball percentage and he just gave up five earned runs against the Brewers in his last start. Now the Brewers get him at home and are hitting right around their season averages.
Preferred Plays: Christian Yelich ($4800 FD|$5800 DK), Keston Hiura ($3600 FD|$5400 DK), Yasmani Grandal ($4000 FD|$5100 DK), and Mike Moustakas ($3700 FD|$5000 DK). Eric Thames ($2900 FD|$5000 DK) on FD.
GPP Stack: New York Yankees
vs. LHP Tommy Milone (PLR) (SEA): UPDATE
I actually love this entire game and can see myself stacking it with only seven games on the board. No definitive answer on who is pitching for SEA, but it looks like Tommy Milone gets the nod for projected long reliever. Either way the Yankees get a dream matchup against left handed pitching. They are absolutely destroying lefties, slashing to a .400 wOBA, .300 ISO, and 186 WRC+. All of the LHPs on this SEA staff below Marco Gonzalez are horrendous to righties at home so I’m not going to overthink this one and have plenty of exposure to the Yankees.
Preferred Stack:Aaron Judge (an absolute lock at his salary) ($4100 FD|$4600 DK), DJ LeMahieu ($3900 FD|$4900 DK), Gio Urshula ($3300 FD|$4300 DK), and Gleyber Torres ($4200 FD|5100 DK). Mike Tauchman ($2600 FD|$4100 DK) offers salary relief and correlation batting 9th.
Other Teams I Have Interest in
MLB GPP Stack: Seattle Mariners
vs. LHP J.A. Happ (NYM): 5.30 Runs
Like I said, I’m crazy about this game. J.A. Happ is on the other side and he has had a pretty bad season as we all know. I don’t love the Mariners as a full stack but they offer some great value pieces (particularly on FD) for those expensive NYY/MIL stacks.
Preferred Plays:Austin Nola ($2800 FD|$4500 DK), Tom Murphy ($3000 FD|$5100 DK), Tim Lopes ($2600 FD|$4300 DK), and Kyle Seager ($3700 FD|$4600 DK).
MLB GPP Stack: San Francisco Giants
vs. LHP Alex Young (ARI): UPDATE
Preferred Plays:Evan Longoria ($3300 FD|$4200 DK), Austin Slater ($2600 FD|$4400 DK), Kevin Pillar ($3200 FD|$4300 DK), and Donovan Solano ($2300 FD|$3900 DK). Also consider Mike Yastrzemski ($3200 FD|$5100 DK).
Sonny Gray RHP (CIN): 3.30 Runs
Pablo Lopez RHP (MIA): 4.20 Runs
Dustin May RHP (LAD): 4.10 Runs
