Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Tuesday, September 15, 2020
I got a little unconventional with some of my daily fantasy baseball stacks to start the week on Monday. Short slates will do that to you. Tuesday’s is anything but, as we get a marvelous 15-game slate to work with.
You need some of the best MLB DFS stacks to hit it big in daily fantasy baseball tournaments, and I’m back again to point out my favorites for September 15th, 2020.
If you agree with my top MLB DFS stacks, consider using my fantasy insight to target some MLB wagers at the top baseball betting apps.
New York Yankees
New York is always a viable stack, especially when they’re at home in a hitter’s paradise like Yankee Stadium. The pinstripes are surging at the right time, as they’ve won five straight games, and are also a healthy 18-7 in their home park.
Form and the location of the game assist the Yanks, but I also love their matchup. They get to face right-handed hurler Taijuan Walker (3-2, 2.95 ERA), who has respectable numbers on the year but could be due for an implosion.
Walker isn’t a bad pitcher, but he’s in an impossible spot. He’s shown vulnerability against left-handed hitters, so you can prioritize that side of the plate before rounding out stacks with New York’s litany of viable righties.
New York Mets
The Philadelphia Phillies are also in play in this matchup, as they get to face the king of hard contact in Rick Porcello. I like them a lot, but they’re the Phillies and always seem to be popular.
I’ll go the more contrarian route and attack Jake Arrieta. He’s a big name, but he isn’t the ace he once was. More of a grind-it-out arm these days, Arrieta doesn’t miss enough bats (18% K rate), and can get obliterated (.379 wOBA, .218 ISO) from the left side of the plate.
The Mets have to be on your radar here. They have some quality bats operating from the left side, and collectively have a ton of power. Factor in their positive matchup in a hitter’s park, and they feel like a really fun stack on Tuesday night.
Kansas City Royals
If the sun is out and we can breathe, we target Matthew Boyd. He can absolutely shred this Royals lineup, but the guy is a home run waiting to happen, and he brings an ugly 7.63 ERA to the table in this one.
Kansas City is rarely an offense we can be confident about, but they have some nice power bats and a slew of right-handed hitters that could get to Boyd early.
When Boyd took on the Royals earlier this year, he got smacked around (9 hits, 4 runs), while his recent form (9 earned runs, 4 HR allowed) over his last two games isn’t very inspiring.
Give me all of the A’s today. I will probably have most of my exposure to this particular stack, as we get one of the best fly ball offenses in baseball at Coors Field.
It’s a beautiful marriage, plus Antonio Senzatela isn’t a very scary matchup in general. Matt Olson gets the party started for me from the left side of the plate, but you can use any and all Athletics tonight.
This is probably the best MLB DFS stack of the slate, but it’s admittedly an obvious one. I just couldn’t get through this post without gushing over it.
Julio Teheran isn’t good, and his nasty 8.23 ERA probably tells us all we need to know. He’s vulnerable to lefties, but this is a guy who gives up a lot of contact, and really isn’t limiting anyone.
I had no qualms suggesting the abhorrent Rangers against him in his last start, and he gave up five runs in that outing. He’s now allowed multiple runs in every start this season, and with the guy not missing any bats, he continues to be one of the best pitchers to stack against.
Arizona doesn’t really stand out on their own, but the matchup makes them one of the top daily fantasy baseball stacks for the day.
There are some good options for staking on Tuesday night, but I’d start all of my MLB DFS lineups off with some exposure to Coors Field. You can obviously also include the Rockies, but I certainly favor Oakland in this spot.
Beyond that obvious stack, I think the Yankees are in a good spot, while I am very high on the Mets. More contrarian stacks like KC and Arizona could be pretty rewarding, as well.
My personal approach will probably be a full five-man Athletics stack, with a sprinkling of Royals, Yankees, Mets, and Diamondbacks (among other offenses) in several different daily fantasy baseball lineups.
Hopefully, one of these MLB DFS stacks hits big and helps you win. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
