DFS MLB Stacks: March 31 (Early Slate)
A look at today's MLB Early Slate and the best DFS stacks to play in both cash games and GPP contests.
We missed last night on this one, but in any event, they still have the highest total on the board for early slates by over an entire run. That's quite a lot. Once again, you will have to use some of the cheaper guy in this lineup ie. Marwin Gonzalez, Jake Marisnick, Brian McCann. I would also be in favor or using Lance McCullers with your stack in this one. Houston gets to beat on Matt Moore today which is good news considering Houston had a .347 wOBA against LHP last year.....good for 2nd in the MLB.
Though you could use Houston here as well, and might want to entertain doing so, I like the Yankees as a play here with CC Sabathia. Obviously you are going to have a difficult time using Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton so get that out of your head. I would tilt toward Stanton in this one. Marco Estrada has had one of the highest fly ball % in baseball history. It is miraculous he is still a major league pitcher. You can get away with that against the Rays, not against the Yankees, and especially not this year. Just to reiterate...Marco Estrada...50% FB rate last year.
This should be an under the radar type of play today with so much ownership falling on Houston. As pointed out yesterday, Khris Davis had 34/41 home runs come against RHP last year. Matt Shoemaker does not exactly have blow away stuff so Oakland could easily hit 3-4 homeruns off him today. Matt Joyce may also lead off today at 3.2k on DK which is a fabulous price. Jedd Lowrie is in the 3-hole at 3.3k. At these prices you can easily pair this stack with NYY.
