We had a nine-game MLB DFS slate on Saturday, September 23rd, but currently it's down to seven games as the weather has already postponed two contests. There are three other games dealing with bad weather today that could result in postponement or delay, so keep a close eye on them. The weather center below will be updated as we get more information closer to lineup lock. Be sure to check out all of our tools including the MLB Lineups page, MLB DFS Projections – powered by FanJections –, MLB DFS Ownership, and all of the rest of our tools HERE! Let's dive into today's playbook, core plays, and top stacks of the day!

MLB DFS Weather Center

Arizona Diamondbacks @ New York Yankees


Atlanta Braves @ Washington Nationals


New York Mets @ Philadelphia Phillies

It looks like they *could* play if they wanted to, but there are going to be 40 MPH wind gusts blowing in.

Los Angeles Angels @ Minnesota Twins

There is game-ending rain in the area, but it’s for later in the game. There is a chance nine innings aren’t played here unless it’s played QUICK.

Chicago White Sox @ Boston Red Sox

There is going to be a lot of rain early in this one along with some projected wind. They could wait it out and play, but we’ll have to see what they do as the day progresses.

Favorite Starters to Use for DFS Lineups

Brandon Woodruff, Milwaukee Brewers

There have been few pitchers in baseball this year pitching as consistently well as Woodruff has thus far. Now, granted, he’s only made 10 starts, but he has a sparkling 1.89 ERA and has only allowed more than 2 ER in one start. He’s picked up five consecutive quality starts and has 20+ DKP in 9-of-10 games. He actually fired a complete game shutout against the Marlins on the 11th of this month while striking out seven. He’s expensive, but with how much uncertainty there is on today’s slate with the weather alone, Woodruff is the clear-cut top pitching option in all formats.

Zack Wheeler, Philadelphia Phillies

IF THIS GAME PLAYS, there will be 40 MPH winds blowing in. MASSIVE advantage for pitchers here. This game is being bet down big time as it opened at an 8 O/U and is down to 7 in some sportsbooks. The question remains; do they just PPD it because they don’t want to play wind ball?

Marcus Stroman, Chicago Cubs

Will Stroman be limited in his first start since returning from the IL? That remains to be seen. He has pitched twice in relief since returning and maxed out at 31 pitches. After an amazing start to his 2023 campaign, he really struggled prior to his IL stint, but he gets a cupcake match-up against a Rockies team that’s been one of the league’s worst offenses this season. Stoman’s enjoyed pitching at home this year and at just 8.4K on DraftKings, he’s a solid mid-tier option if there is little to no limit.

Nick Pivetta, Boston Red Sox

This game is a bit risky because of the weather, but there’s a lot to like about Pivetta here. The White Sox are 29th in OPS and wOBA against right-handed pitching in September. Pivetta is back in the rotation and has looked pretty good over his past two starts posting a 16:1 K:BB ratio over 11.2 IP. Tournaments only because we’re just a little unsure on the weather aspect of this game.

Joey Wentz, Detroit Tigers

The Tigers are sending Joey Wentz to the mound and Wentz, let’s face it, has been awful this year. He has a 6.64 ERA across 97.2 IP. He has, however, struck out 91 batters and is coming off 7 Ks against the Angels. He has double-digit FP in three straight outings in which he’s worked at least four innings. Take that for what it’s worth. He faces the Athletics who have a 30% K-rate against southpaws in September along with the 25th-ranked offense in terms of OPS.

Favorite Hitters to Use for DFS Lineups

Rafael Devers, Boston Red Sox

With how well Devers has played to close out the season and how poorly Dylan Cease has pitched, this match-up is perfect for the Red Sox 3B. He had another two hits on Friday and has now slashed .379/.550/.690 over his last 10 games. He has a .239 ISO and .400 wOBA against RHP this year.

Seiya Suzuki, Chicago Cubs

The Cubs lead the slate in implied runs as they face off against the Rockies and Chris Flexen. For whatever reason, Suzuki is the only Cubs player not juiced up in terms of price, yet he’s been the best offensive option they’ve had. He’s notched a .342 AVG, 1.106 OPS, 4 HR, and 11 RBI over his last 10 games. He’s done this much throughout the second half and he’s really hit RHP well. Chris Flexen’s struggled more with RHH than LHH as well.

Brent Rooker, Oakland Athletics

Although I like Joey Wentz, I’m not overlooking the fact that Rooker is on one right now. He’s homered in three straight games, four over his last five, and six over his last nine. He’s had a great season against left-handed pitching specifically, too, notching a .238 ISO and .375 wOBA. Wentz has been crushed by righties allowing a .256 ISO and a .395 wOBA.

Michael A. Taylor, Minnesota Twins

Taylor has done a LOT of damage against left-handed pitching this year and is really cheap on this slate. Taylor has a team-leading .313 ISO vs. LHP along with a .347 wOBA. He faces southpaw, Kenny Rosenberg, who’s allowed a .392 wOBA to right-handed hitters this season. Taylor’s a very nice value if this game isn’t overly impacted by rain. Considering it’s the first game of the slate, we should have an idea whether it plays or not.

Junior Caminero, Tampa Bay Rays

Is today the day we see Junior Caminero make his debut? It feels like it. Brandon Lowe was placed on IL yesterday, Randy Arozarena also left and is day-to-day. In 81 games at Double-A this year, Caminero belted 20 bombs while hitting .309. This kid RAKES and gets a lefty here. Against lefties across his two minor league stints, Caminero hit .372 with a 1.176 OPS.
