Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Friday, September 18, 2020
Stacking in daily fantasy baseball remains the quickest path to glory. Sometimes it pays to hedge your bets against an ace, and other times you just need to eat chalk.
Whatever the case, I’m back at it again on Friday, eyeing some of the best MLB DFS stacks worth targeting. I doubt they’ll all hit, but if even one does, we could all be on our way to glory.
Keep an eye on the latest odds from the best MLB sportsbooks, as well as any pitcher, lineup, or weather news. Barring anything wild, though, these are my favorite daily fantasy baseball stacks for Friday’s main slate.
New York Yankees
Change the record, right? Maybe, but the Yankees are facing the hated Red Sox in the ever hittable Fenway Park. That alone is enough to get me on this stack.
Only feeding my interest is the fact that this unit is finally getting healthy. Both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton have made their way back into the lineup, and the Yanks are on fire at the moment.
On Friday we can target these guys as elite one-offs against Martin Perez, who traditionally gives up a lot of hard contact to the right side of the plate. Fire up your Yankees, folks.
Los Angeles Dodgers
We have the Dodgers in Coors Field still, so we need to draft our MLB DFS lineups accordingly. I know, Coors hasn’t been as kind to us lately as it should be, but this is the Dodgers in the best park in baseball.
L.A. gets to face a beatable arm in Ryan Castellani (4.46 ERA), who is allowing a .342 wOBA and .302 ISO to left-handed hitters.
The Dodgers are at their best when facing exploitable righties, and that most certainly is the case here. This offense should be crazy chalky, but you can’t let that limit your exposure.
Stack your Yankees, but cram those Dodgers in there, too.
On a slate full of viable MLB DFS stacks, the Brew Crew will undoubtedly go overlooked. Milwaukee is in a pretty good spot, though, as their band of mashing righties welcomes Danny Duffy and his middling 4.24 ERA into town.
Duffy has been respectable on the year, but this is a considerable park downgrade for him. He’s been better on the road, but the park dip is going to hurt him, as is his issues against righties.
All eight of Duffy’s home runs allowed in 2020 have come from the right side of the plate. You can still fire up Christian Yelich here, but I love this offense anytime they face a southpaw in a good park.
San Diego Padres
There are a lot of offenses to consider tonight, but I’ll cap things off with Slam Diego. In all honesty, these four MLB DFS stacks are probably all we’ll need, anyways. The rest of our focus will be on getting the pitching right.
The Padres are always in play, but tonight they could fly under the radar a bit, for obvious reasons. They probably shouldn’t, though. Yusei Kikuchi isn’t awful or anything, but his 5.35 ERA tells you he isn’t exactly elite, either.
That isn’t the stat we want or need, though. Kikuchi is getting hammered by righties (.359 wOBA, .226 ISO, 37% hard-hit rate) in 2020, and logic suggests the nightmare doesn’t end against the Padres.
Fernando Tatis headlines a loaded group of righties who make for a great stack. You can limit them to their top three righties, or go all-in on a stack that may be under-owned.
The Dodgers and Yankees jump out at you more than anyone else. I definitely see that as well as anyone. You have to use them and talk about them on this slate, but it’s possible they’re not the stacks that help you make it to the top.
Identifying that secondary stack is pretty key, and if that’s all the Brewers or Padres are, I can live with that.
However you mix and match your MLB DFS stacks, I just hope one of these groups hit and you can win.
Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
