We have a 12-game MLB DFS main slate on Saturday, July 15th, on DraftKings and a 10-game slate on FanDuel. Both slates include Coors Field, however, so the Yankees and Rockies are featured on both slates and it's a pretty good match-up for both teams as they have the two highest implied run totals of the day. Be sure to check out our tools including the MLB Lineups page, MLB DFS Projections – powered by FanJections –, MLB DFS Ownership, and all of our tools HERE! Let's dive into today's playbook, core plays, and top stacks of the day! 


MLB DFS Weather Center

Miami Marlins @ Baltimore Orioles

This game has a chance for a delay, but nothing we should take too seriously.

San Diego Padres @ Philadelphia Phillies

Much like the game in Baltimore, a delay is possible but nothing beyond that is expected.

San Francisco Giants @ Pittsburgh Pirates

There is definitely a delay risk and potentially even one that impacts pitchers in this game if the delay turns out to be a lengthy one.

Milwaukee Brewers @ Cincinnati Reds

Another spot that looks as if a delay is very likely. It doesn’t look worse than that, but a length delay is possible.

Los Angeles Dodgers @ New York Mets

Another game with delay risk, but that’s if the storms even show up above the stadium or not.

Favorite Starters to Use for DFS Lineups

Spencer Strider, Atlanta Braves

You look at the price and wonder if it’s worth it each and every time, considering he’s been over 12K for five straight slates, and in each of the last four he’s put up 28+ DKP. He’s topped 34 twice over that span. He has 166 strikeouts in 104.2 innings and is 11-2. He gets a subpar-offense White Sox offense that is right-handed heavy.

Pablo Lopez, Minnesota Twins

Lopez is coming off the best start of the season twirling a complete-game shutout in which he struck out 12 Royals and has now put up three straight quality starts, and has 22+ DKP in five of six starts. Oakland has a top-three strikeout rate against right-handed pitching and is bottom-five in every offensive category including OPS, wOBA, and ISO against righties. Lopez is in a great spot.

Alex Cobb, San Francisco Giants

Over the last month, no team has been worse against right-handed pitching across the entire league than the Pittsburgh Pirates. They rank last in OPS, wOBA, and ISO along with a 23.7% K-rate which is tied for 11th in baseball. Insert Alex Cobb coming off six scoreless innings his last time out and has five shutouts this entire year, which is a lot in only July. Cobb has had a good season pitching to a 2.91 ERA up to this point.

Kyle Gibson, Baltimore Orioles

This is tricky because Gibson hadn’t been great until his last outing. He has twice this season put up double-digit strikeout games and has a pretty good match-up against the Marlins. Miami has not been great against right-handed pitching this year ranking in the bottom-10 in OPS and wOBA while posting a 22% K-rate and we saw their strikeout propensity just yesterday with Dean Kremer on the mound. He has put up 16+ DKP in four of his last seven starts and is his lowest price of the year.

Favorite Hitters to Use for DFS Lineups

Matt Olson, Atlanta Braves

Olson opened up the second half of his 2023 campaign with a bang hitting a first-inning grand slam, which was his 30th bomb of the year. The Braves take on Lance Lynn in this spot and Lynn has struggled mightily with left-handed hitters this season. Lefties have a .300 ISO and a .438 wOBA against Lynn, which are both robust marks. Olson himself leads the team with a .354 ISO against righties and has a .426 wOBA to boot.

Giancarlo Stanton, New York Yankees

When using Giancarlo Stanton you have to be very selective and pick a time when he’s feeling good at the dish. He homered for the third time in three games on Friday and has two multi-hit games over his last three. He has a .187 ISO against righties and gets to hit in Coors Field again Saturday. He faces Connor Seabold who’s been crushed by both splits, but righties have a .254 ISO and a .370 wOBA against him.

Alec Bohm, Philadelphia Phillies

Bohm picked right up where he left off before the break going 2-for-3, reaching base three times, while driving in and scoring one run a piece. Bohm’s hit .405 over his last 10 games and has raked against left-handed pitching this season notching a .277 ISO and .398 wOBA, both second on the team and both elite marks. A sub-4K price on DK is criminal as he faces Ryan Weathers who’s allowing a .220 ISO and .410 wOBA to right-handed bats this year.

Brendan Donovan, St. Louis Cardinals

Donovan has really hit his stride at the dish coming into Saturday’s double-header he was hitting .400 in July after hitting .320 in June. He homered in the first game on Saturday and continues to lead off each and every day. He’s done all of his damage against right-handed pitching this year and has a .358 wOBA against righties. Jake Irvin, Nationals starter, has allowed a .161 ISO and .343 wOBA against left-handed bats this season.

Mike Yastrzemski, San Francisco Giants

The Giants are criminally priced and you can get to them as an entire stack if you’d like, but I really like Yastrzemski here. I like Conforto too, but after leaving Friday’s game it’s a TBD if he suits up here. Yas leads today’s projected Giants lineup with a .228 ISO and his .365 wOBA is third. He faces Johan Oviedo who struggles with left-handed hitters specifically as they’ve posted a .190 ISO and .342 wOBA against him.
