Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Saturday, September 5, 2020
Our daily fantasy baseball stacks continue to do well. It’s up to you which stacks you mix and match, of course, as well as which pitchers you use.
However, nailing the best MLB DFS stacks is half the battle, and that’s what we’re here to do. Saturday offers a huge 17-game slate, so there is going to be plenty to think about.
With that, let’s see which daily fantasy baseball stacks are worth trusting for Saturday, September 5th.
Believe me, even considering using the Pirates gives me indigestion, but hear me out. Nobody will be on them due to the pitcher park, their matchup, and because they’re the Pirates.
Ownership probably isn’t such a pressing issue on a slate like this, but I am a fan of this matchup. It’s true that Anthony DeSclafani can miss bats, but he’s not exactly thriving in 2020 (1-2, 7.71 ERA) and the guy has major issues (.345 wOBA, .218 ISO, 46% fly-ball rate, and 44% hard-hit rate) against lefties.
This is also a spot where you can just use DeSclafani here and feel pretty good about it, but the Pirates are at home, and can throw five or more lefties out in this matchup.
Pittsburgh is a high-risk stack, but they’re probably my favorite low-owned option of this slate.
The Twins haven’t really mashed southpaws like they’re capable of this year, but they’re still one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball and they’re at home.
They’re also facing a young lefty in Tarik Skubal, who has had bad numbers against righties in a small sample size. He did contain Minnesota on August 29th, but you can no longer say this Twins lineup hasn’t faced this kid.
While talented, Skubal is on the road against a very good offense, and he’s gotten taken deep in every game this year. This could be a brutal learning experience for him, as the Twins now are a bit more familiar with him and have five hitters with an ISO at .189 or better they can throw at him.
Usually, you don’t need an extra nudge to play the Twins, but I’d be selling you (and myself) short by not plugging them in Saturday’s best MLB DFS stacks column.
New York Yankees
The pinstripes are still down some of their best bats, but they offer plenty of pop and will be in a hitter’s paradise in Camden Yards.
On top of that, the Yankees face a beatable southpaw in Keegan Akin. The sample size is incredibly small, but Akin hasn’t exhibited an ability to consistently get right-handed bats out, and he’s given up too much hard contact.
New York is facing a pitcher they don’t know, but the matchup and park play out well for this lineup. Luke Voit, Gary Sanchez, and Gio Urshela lead a plenty capable band of righties who all boast ISOs over .217.
There are a few other daily fantasy baseball stacks I don’t mind for Saturday, with the Chicago White Sox and Atlanta Braves both being elite offenses in solid enough spots.
I wouldn’t put them ahead of these stacks in terms of matchup, however. My favorite stack on this slate is Minnesota, followed by the Yanks and the sneaky Pirates.
Be sure to mix my favorite MLB DFS stacks with your own, while using elite fantasy lineup tools for entering numerous MLB DFS lineups is always encouraged.
