DFS MLB Stacks: September 16
Tom Vecchio pores over all of the statistics, splits, and matchups to uncover the very best DFS MLB Stacks for today's contests.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are in a spot where they truly do need to win games and have an easier matchup at home to do so. They are up against Thomas Pannone , who has a very limited sample size this season but is giving up a .378 wOBA to lefties and 1.83 HR/9 to righties. This leads to the Yankees coming in with an implied run total set at 5.47, which is second highest on the day. As always with the Yankees, their hitters are going to be very expensive, but the park factor can lead to multiple home runs, so you are really paying for the potential upside. Plenty of hitters to pick from, so focus in on the ones with the most home run upside. Giancarlo Stanton .340 ISO. Gleyber Torres .333 ISO. Aaron Hicks .285 ISO. Luke Voit .257 ISO. Gary Sánchez .246 ISO. Miguel Andujar .221 ISO.
The Orioles make a nice stacking option today and come in very cheap specifically on FanDuel, so they bring savings along with the power. They are at home in a solid hitter’s park, facing off against Lucas Giolito , who is giving up 1.34 HR/9 to lefties and 1.48 HR/9 to righties this season. Giolito has given up three or more earned runs five of his last seven games. Giolito is also giving up a 43% fly ball rate to left-handed hitters this season, which can lead to plenty of home runs, so that is where you want to be targeting some hitters. Cedric Mullins .195 ISO. Trey Mancini .179 ISO. Austin Wynns .160 ISO. Adam Jones .147 ISO. Chris Davis .138 ISO.
The Braves are going up against Tanner Roark , who has given up 15 earned runs in his last three starts, so the perfect time to stack against him, as he is struggling right now. He is giving up 1.30 HR/9 to lefties along with 1.08 HR/9 to righties this season. Very favorable hitter’s park in Atlanta, so we should be in for some runs since the Braves come in with an implied total set at 5.33, which fourth highest on the slate. Great combination of park factor, struggling pitcher, against a powerful offense. Ronald Acuna .285 ISO. Charlie Culberson .217 ISO. Ozzie Albies .192 ISO. Kurt Suzuki .173 ISO. Freddie Freeman .171 ISO.
