Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Thursday, September 17, 2020

Best MLB DFS Stacks September 17, 2020

After a wild 16-game slate, things cool down in professional baseball on Thursday, with just 12 games on the docket. It’s nice to have less to sift through in one regard, but fewer games also limit our options.

Have no fear, as there are still some viable daily fantasy baseball stacks to target in DFS tournaments.

For the best MLB DFS stacks for Thursday’s main slate, read on.

New York Yankees

I feel like I talk up the Yankees every day. It’s weird, seeing as they’re not 100% healthy. Even so, they’re at home, and Yankee Stadium is a dicey place for pitchers.

Oh, and they’re also getting Giancarlo Stanton back.

You could argue the same for the Blue Jays. I’d just rather pick on Chase Anderson.

He’d actually been having a solid 2020 campaign, but the door came off the hinges in his last start out. Anderson also tends to have reverse splits, so taking on a murderer’s row of New York righties feels like a suboptimal position to be in.

I love the Yankees as a full-stack today, but you can limit yourself to individual bats if you’re not on board.

Baltimore Orioles

This is in reference to game two of a doubleheader where Baltimore is technically the road team, but this game is still at Camden Yards.

Tampa Bay is the obvious chalk in this spot, and Tyler Glasnow is going to be one of the best pitchers to use in daily fantasy baseball contests.

But there are a lot of great MLB DFS stacks on this small slate. I say let’s go full Frank Reynolds here and get real weird with it. Stacking the O’s isn’t safe, but in this park, it’s on the table.

Houston Astros

Houston hasn’t been that great in 2020, and they have especially underwhelmed at home. That’s to be expected, as they have been really banged up, and their home stadium is rather pitcher-friendly.

Load them up, anyways.

They are nearing full strength, for one, and tonight they get the most hittable righty known to man in Jordan Lyles (7.80 ERA). Maybe that’s a bit rash, but he’s been horrendous in 2020, and he gives up loads of contact.

You don’t need the numbers. Houston has an amazing matchup, and on a slate with plenty of other great daily fantasy baseball stacks – including a game at Coors – Houston could even fly a bit below the radar.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers are as potent as anyone, and you get to load them up at Coors Field tonight. That has me sold on a full-stack, but their righties could be in business against Kyle Freeland.

He’s preventing runs, but this is Coors Field, and the guy offers a .364 wOBA and .232 ISO versus righties.

Freeland has actually been solid in 2020, but this is an impossible spot for him. Dodgers lefties can still be used – and they may even be contrarian – but I’m favoring the right side of the plate, led by Mookie Betts.


It’s weird, but I feel like there are a ton of viable MLB DFS stacks today, even though we have a really small main slate at DraftKings.

You’re probably best off just sticking to 1-2 of your favorite stacks as the main stacks to go around, and then splicing interest elsewhere in secondary stacks, and/or one-offs.

Shane Bieber will probably be the top arm to go after, so starting things off with Bieber and as many Dodgers, you can cram in your MLB DFS lineups may be a great way to go.
