Stacks are essential to most DFS players success during MLB season. This article will highlight some promising stacks in prime spots to go off. I am currently using mostly 2017-18 stats until stats get settled out. I will never write up Coors Field as it is a known hot bed for stacking. Stack’em up, Sheet Squad!
New York Yankees (Cash/GPP)
Kendall Graveman toes the rubber vs the Yankees tonight and I DO NOT expect this to go well for him. The righty was suppose to be an “Ace” for them this year but has struggled enough to be sent down to Triple A already. Using Yanks vs pitcher that do not miss bats is always a good idea and Graveman is that type of guy.
VS LHBs: .335 wOBA and .172 ISO
VS RHBs: .368 wOBA and .184 ISO
OPPO K%: 24.4%
OPPO SWSTR%: 11.6%
OPPO HC%: 37.2%
Aaron Judge is my only core here. He is pricey but check is splits…he hammers RHP this year.
Judge: .421 wOBA and .327 ISO vs RHP last 2 seasons
All the Yankees are in play here to me. Didi Gregorius has been struggling but a great spot for him. Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, Gary Sanchez and Miguel Andujar are other Yankees I like here (In that order).
Atlanta Braves (GPP)
Braves vs a struggling Dan Straily, yeah I am in! The is only one other current team with more 10+ run potential this year and that is the Cubs (who have one more 10 plus run game than Braves). The can pop off any night and Straily looks off big time so far.

Freddie Freeman is my only core guy here. He is feeling it right now and time to ride the wave..
Freeman: .414 wOBA and .285 ISO vs RHP last 2 seasons
I went with one core guy to give some options here. If there is one thing you do, ROSTER NICK MARKAKIS with a stack. He will troll dong you. He has done it to me all year. Other Braves to like are Ozzie Albies, Ronald Acuna and Ender Inciarte.
