Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Thursday, September 24, 2020
MLB offenses have been a little all over the place lately. Some, like the Houston Astros, have been MIA pretty much all year.
While that can be the case, we still need to try to locate the best MLB DFS stacks in an effort to climb the ladder in daily fantasy baseball GPPs.
If we hit the right stack, it could mean you win all the money. That’s the plan with our Thursday breakdown, as I look at the top daily fantasy baseball stacks – both chalky and contrarian – that you’ll want to consider targeting at DFS sites.
Not into daily fantasy baseball, but want to apply the below advice to some MLB wagers? Consider testing the waters at some of the best baseball betting apps.
With that, let’s dive into Thursday’s top MLB DFS stacks.
San Francisco Giants
You know it’s an interesting slate when I waste no time to roll out the Giants of all teams. Normally I would never dare utter their name – especially in this park – but the early slate may demand it.
Whether you’re eyeing a showdown slate or playing an early or all day slate, I think we can eye the Giants. They’re at home and facing Chi Chi Gonzalez (7.53 ERA), and to be frank, nothing more needs to be said.
But let’s dive in, anyways.
San Francisco doesn’t have a great offense, but they’re facing a hard contact fiend that isn’t missing bats and walks way too many hitters. Chi Chi can keep the ball on the ground, but he has major issues with lefties, as he only whiffs them at a 15% clip, and walks them literally just as frequently.
That’s, um, bad.
The Giants aren’t loaded with power or scary hitters, but their lefties whiff less and walk more than their righties.
Alex Dickerson, Brandon Belt, and Brandon Crawford are the easy sticks to point out here, and Gonzalez’s lack of resistance against lefties (.371 wOBA, .221 ISO) should see the Giants force as many left-handers in this lineup as possible.
Toronto Blue Jays
This isn’t an awful matchup for Jordan Montgomery in the context of getting strikeouts, but it’s otherwise pretty bleak.
Montgomery is talented, but he isn’t great against right-handed hitters. He’ll enter this game with the rival Blue Jays allowing a .357 wOBA, .240 ISO, a 37% fly ball rate, and a 39% hard hit rate to the right side of the plate.
Toronto has numerous righties that could spell trouble for Montgomery, with Lourdes Gurriel (.309 ISO) leading the way. This is a tough spot for Montgomery, and a pretty fun time to stack Jays.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox haven’t been very good in 2020, but they’re at home against a contact pitcher that can definitely be had in Alex Cobb.
Cobb doesn’t miss enough bats, he issues too many free passes, and he’s looking to go to work against a fairly talented offense in a brutal setting.
That, and he is an equal opportunity sad sack against both sides of the plate. Basically anyone that can offset his ground ball tendencies is in play here, with J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, and Rafael Devers all standing out.
Thursday’s slate will be broken up a bit and we’re only dealing with 11 total games. The Giants stack is for early slates, while you can eye Toronto and Boston for the slates at night.
There are undeniably going to be other daily fantasy baseball stacks to consider, but I am prioritizing these stacks, and then looking for elite one-offs in other sports.
Hopefully, these offenses help you today, whether it’s in the MLB betting scene, or in GPPs in daily fantasy contests.
