MLB Hitting Stacks: Winning Edge for August 21

Published

on

This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s 11-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 DFS Cheat Sheet as well.

Teams with Highest IRT

MLB Hitting Stack: Houston Astros**

vs. LHP Daniel Norris (DET): 6.35 Runs

**Low Risk

The Astros offense has come back down to reality as of late after going on a heater for the last month. This is still a dangerous lineup and they get a favorable matchup against LHP Daniel Norris. He is having an average season, owning 4.82 ERA, 4.86 FIP, and 4.70 SIERA. Norris has a GB rate of 41% and a BABIP of .318. He is allowing 1.68 HR/9. His splits are pretty identical so i feel comfortable going R or L through this Astros lineup.

Preferred Plays: Yordon Alvarez ($4300 FD|$5500 DK), Alex Bregman ($4500 FD|$5200 DK), George Springer ($4100 FD|$4900 DK), and Jose Altuve ($4400 FD|$5100 DK).

MLB Hitting Stack: Boston Red Sox

vs. LHP Drew Smyly (BOS): 6.60 Runs

**Moderate Risk

As of now the Red Sox hold the highest implied run total on the slate. They get a weak left handed pitcher in Drew Smyly, who had a flash of greatness when traded to the Phillies, but now he seems to be back to his normal 7.00+ ERA self, giving up four or more runs in his last three starts. Smyly is allowing a massive 47% hard contact, 46% fly ball rate, and 2.81 HR/9. I have a tough time paying the premium salary for these Red Sox players with the fantasy output we’ve been getting in return lately, but they should be one of the top owned stacks tonight.

Preferred Stack: Andrew Benintendi ($3600 FD|$4800 DK), Sam Travis ($3000 FD|$4100 DK), J.D. Martinez ($4200 FD|$5100 DK), and Rafael Devers ($4600 FD|$5700 DK). Also consider Mookie Betts ($4400 FD|$5400 DK).

Other Teams I Have Interest in

MLB Hitting Stack: Los Angeles Dodgers

vs. RHP Thomas Pannone (TOR): 4.25 Runs

**Moderate Risk

Preferred Plays: Corey Seager ($3400 FD|$4200 DK), Cody Bellinger ($4900 FD|$5200 DK), Justin Turner ($3900 FD|$4600 DK) and A.J. Pollock ($3500 FD|$4100 DK). Also consider: Matt Beaty ($2800 FD|$4300 DK) for value.

MLB Hitting Stack: Washington Nationals

vs. RHP Joe Musgrove (PIT): 5.10 Runs

**Low Risk

Preferred Plays: Juan Soto ($4100 FD|$5400 DK), Anthony Rendon ($4400 FD|$5300 DK), Trea Turner ($4200 FD|$5400 DK), and Matt Adams ($3400 FD|$4600 DK). Also consider: Adam Eaton ($3800 FD|$5000 DK).

MLB Hitting Stack: Atlanta Braves

vs. LHP Caleb Smith (MIA): 5.75 Runs

**Moderate Risk

Preferred Plays: Adam Duvall ($2900 FD|$3800 DK), Josh Donaldson ($3600 FD|$4500 DK), Ozzie Albies ($3400 FD|$4500 DK), and Charlie Culberson ($2000 FD|$3600 DK).

Pitching

  1. Adrian Houser RHP (MIL): 4.20
  2. Yu Darvish RHP (CHC): UPDATE
  3. Walker Buehler RHP (LAD): 4.25 Runs
