DFS MLB Stacks: July 22
Tom Vecchio studies the match-ups to find you some of the better stacks to use for your DFS MLB GPP contests on Sunday's slate.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blues Jays come in with an implied team total set at 5.31, which is third highest on the slate, which should be a good indication for them to be one of the higher scoring teams on the day. They are facing off against Andrew Cashner , who is giving some seriously bad numbers this season. He is allowing a .355 wOBA to lefties this season along with 1.78 HR/9. His numbers vs righties aren’t too much better with a .361 wOBA and 1.08 HR/9. With numbers as bad as those, you can really stack up anyone you want from the Blue Jays, which shouldn’t be too hard today, since there are no players over $4K on FanDuel and only three players over $4K on DraftKings. There are plenty of players who have power upside, which should maximize your home run potential. Dwight Smith Jr. .303 ISO. Randal Grichuk .273 ISO. TeOscar Hernandez .263 ISO. Justin Smoak .249 ISO. Curtis Granderson .229 ISO. Kendrys Morales .188 ISO.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are up against Blaine Hardy and the Tigers today, who have one of the worst bullpens in the league, with a 4.40 ERA. Hardy hasn’t been a full-time starter this season, so he has a bit of a smaller sample size, only 54 innings pitched. He is giving up a .325 wOBA to righties, along with 0.95 HR/9, which truly aren’t that bad, but he is now facing off against one of the top offensive teams in the league. The Red Sox have a .350 team wOBA and a .201 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season, both of which are first in the league. They had an off game last night, so hopefully, they can bounce back today and put up some runs. Generally, when it comes to the Red Sox, it comes down to how much money you have to spend on a stack and if you are able to, you should jam them into your lineup. Mookie Betts .336 ISO. J.D. Martínez .294 ISO. Steve Pearce .242 ISO. Mitch Moreland .149 ISO. Rafael Devers .147 ISO.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers get a nice positive park shift, since they are at Miller Park this weekend, so a good spot to get some exposure to their bats. They will be up against Brent Suter, who is giving up 1.59 HR/9 to lefties and 1.43 HR/9 to righties. Those numbers can be very dangerous in a park like this, thus leading to plenty of upside for the Dodgers. They have an implied run total sitting at 4.48 today, which is right in the middle for projected totals today. Their players are decently expensive, so it might mean you have to spend down at pitcher, or look for another stack which is a bit cheaper, so you are able to fill out a solid lineup. With this park, and how home run prone Suter is, you should be looking for all the power you can get into your lineups. Max Muncy .333 ISO. Cody Bellinger .253 ISO. Manny Machado .250 ISO. Matt Kemp .217 ISO. Chris Taylor .198 ISO. Enrique Hernandez .179 ISO.
