Best MLB DFS Stacks September 19, 2020

The weekend is here, but that changes nothing for your daily fantasy baseball degenerates. There is still baseball to be played, and money to be won in MLB DFS tournaments.

Don’t worry, I’m not judging you. I’m joining you.

To fight our way to the top, we need MLB DFS stacks. And then cross our fingers our starting pitchers don’t go full Matt Latos on us.

Here are some of the best MLB DFS stacks to consider using on Saturday, September 19.

Chicago White Sox

Target Trevor Bauer? Blasphemy. I know this one is out there, and I still encourage you to have like 90% Bauer Outage exposure.

But the White Sox are one of the most dangerous offenses in baseball, and they get to swing for the fences at Great American Ballpark.

Bauer will get plenty of whiffs here, but a White Sox stack could still pay off. Lefties are typically the better one-off hitters to use against Bauer, but this is a tough park to excel in, and he still gives up a 40% hard-hit rate and 36% fly-ball rate to right-handed hitters.

Chicago has too many guys to navigate here. You shouldn’t use them in cash games, but in tourneys, 3 to 5-man stacks could be pretty darn sneaky.

Milwaukee Brewers

I don’t always stack Brewers, but when I do, I do it in a good park against left-handed pitchers. Milwaukee is at home, they’re in a solid park for home runs, and they’re facing a beatable southpaw in Kris Bubic (4.50 ERA).

Bubic gets a sharp park downgrade here, and the (somewhat) surging Brewers have the bats to give him trouble. Christian Yelich can always be tried from the left side, but this lineup is littered with viable one-offs, and this is a great spot for a full stack.

Yelich is from the left side, but offers a .297 ISO versus lefties. Depending on who makes the lineup for this game, Milwaukee could have as many as seven hitters with an ISO over .209.

Bubic is getting hit hard (43%) from the right side, and offers a .181 ISO against righties. I love the Brewers tonight.

Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays are always a fun offense to target when they see a big park jump. A game in Camden Yards certainly qualifies, and their many quality righties get to take on John Means.

Means is a capable pitcher, but taking on a good Rays team in this park is asking for trouble. Means has a weak 5.63 ERA on the year, and gives up plenty of power (.204 ISO, 48% fly-ball rate).

Tampa Bay has a slew of guys we can look to here, with Hunter Renfroe (.336 ISO) leading the charge.

Boston Red Sox

Normally I’d be touting the Yankees in this spot – and I have been – but on Saturday I turn my focus to their opponent.

The reason? J.A. Happ gives up too much hard contact (41% hard-hit rate, 43% fly-ball rate, and .236 ISO) to righties, and he’s on the road in a dangerous park.

Fenway Park is a hitter’s paradise, and Boston’s slew of viable right-handed hitters could get to Happ early. Usually that’s bad, as the Yanks have a terrific bullpen, but I suspect he’ll stick around long enough to absorb a good amount of damage.

J.D. Martinez leads an underwhelming but still talented Boston offense that could destroy Happ in this spot.

Los Angeles Dodgers

This is the most obvious stack on the slate, but it’s still probably the stack. Sending Los Angeles into Coors Field will do it alone, regardless of who they’re facing.

But the mighty Dodgers are in Coors against Chi Chi Gonzalez. He’s been hammered by lefties (.388 wOBA, .236 ISO, 35% hard-hit rate), and he can’t get anyone out.

Yes, please.

You don’t really need me to sell you on the Dodgers much more than that. Mookie Betts and the righties can be thrown in stacks, too, but I’d prioritize the left-handers here.

Summary

Most of the MLB DFS stacks listed here are pretty much on the surface. You don’t need me to twist your arm to use the Dodgers tonight, after all.

I doubt many will feel inclined to stack the White Sox or Brewers, though. If either goes off, you’ll know who to thank at the end of the night.

Of course, daily fantasy baseball is a fickle beast. Even the most obvious stacks fall flat, and teams like the Pirates can hammer out 10 runs at the drop of a hat.

If you want something a bit more controlled, consider just betting on the games. You can use our free MLB picks to do just that.
