Stacks are essential to most DFS players success during MLB season in my opinion. This article will highlight some promising stacks in prime spots to go off. I will never write up Coors Field as it is a known hot bed for stacking. Early in the year, I will use numbers from last 2 years (length of players will less than 2 years of MLB service time) until things start settling out. Stack’em up Fancave!
Toronto Blue Jays (Cash)
The Blue Jays dropped double digits last night and get to face Carson Fulmer today, cue the chalk! Fulmer has a higher contact rate the last year (80+%), which is not the best, with a higher hard contact rate last year (20.9%). That does not bode well to me. Note – I hate playing Blue Jays as chalk, they constantly fail. Take that how you want. I will have few in cash but ZERO in GPPS
VS LHBs: .320 wOBA and .181 ISO
VS RHBs: .321 wOBA and .145 ISO
Curtis Granderson and Josh Donaldson will be my cores because they are most likely the Jays in my cash line unless I see better spots. They are two I expect to be highest owned. Granderson could lead off at $2,100 on FD.
Granderson: .348 wOBA and .182 ISO vs RHB last 2 seasons
Donaldson: .396 wOBA and .266 ISO vs RHB last 2 seasons
Justin Smoak is another name that could draw tons of interest. I have interest in him but interest in others. Yangervis Solarte is another bat to look at for value. All of these four mention did work last night.
Colorado Rockies (Cash/GPP)
Rockies get a favorable road matchup at PETCO tonight. Clayton Richard toes the mound and the lefty will see tons of RHB power, which has hurt him a lot in the past. I say exploit that tonight!
VS LHBs: .296 wOBA and .059 ISO
VS RHBs: .369 wOBA and .189 ISO
Let’s hope Bud Black looks at numbers here and gets as many RHBs in there as possible. Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story are my core of the Rockies RHB stack here. When you think Rockies RHB power these are the names. This is a pitcher friendly park but they have the power and matchup to not be concerned with that.
Arenado: .447 wOBA and .328 ISO vs RHB last 2 seasons
Story: .409 wOBA and .226 ISO vs RHB last 2 seasons
I will not look at a LHB so every RHB is viable to me. Chris Iannetta and D.J. LeMahieu are others I have my eyes on but any other RHB viable to me.
