Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Monday, September 21, 2020
We kick off another fun week of daily fantasy baseball action with some of the best MLB DFS stacks to target on Monday.
My last list of hitters to roll with came on Saturday, where I vouched for three teams that put up at least five runs. It wasn’t an amazing day for daily fantasy baseball stacks, but with zero teams scoring more than eight runs on the slate, one stack really didn’t rule the day.
Either way, it’s back to the drawing board on Monday, as we hope to hit on those MLB DFS stacks that can help us win all of the money. Here are my favorites for Monday, September 21st.
Want a contrarian stack nobody will be on? Consider the Mariners. Yes, Lance McCullers Jr. should be high on your list as far as arms to use go, but we need to think about a few things.
First, this dude has been horrendous on the road this year. Not only does he have a disgusting 13.50 ERA away from home, but he has just seven whiffs in four road starts, to go with 19 earned runs.
The sample size isn’t huge, but McCullers hasn’t been reliable on the road. He’s also facing a lineup that he’s crushed twice (at home both times), that is going to be pretty familiar with him.
It’s also worth noting that he sports a .357 wOBA and .276 ISO against lefties (as well as a 49% hard hit rate). Whether you go for a full stack or just limit the bats to Jose Marmolejos, Kyle Seager, or J.P. Crawford, I think we can attack a likely high-owned LMC tonight.
You can also target the Astros on the other side of that Mariners game, but Marco Gonzales is better than people seem to think, and Houston has been pretty bad in 2020.
I’d rather load up on the Braves. It’s been a winning strategy for most of the year, and on Monday they’re back home against Trevor Rogers.
Rogers has displayed some real strikeout upside so far, but the contact he’s allowing against righties (.352 wOBA, .321 ISO, 54% hard hit rate, and 39% fly ball rate) is going to get him into serious trouble.
I won’t be alone here in recommending Atlanta bats, as Marcell Ozuna (.392 ISO) and Adam Dunvall (.361 ISO) smash southpaws and are two key pieces to the full stack puzzle.
They join Ronald Acuna as elite one-offs if you can’t get them all, but I’m aiming for five Braves tonight if I can swing it.
New York Yankees
The pinstripes shouldn’t be a shocker here, as they’ve been on fire for some time now. Not only have the Yanks gone 9-1 over their last 10 games, but they’re suddenly threatening for first place in the AL East again.
The best MLB betting sites still have them as a threat to win it all in 2020, too.
Their offense has largely been feeling it, with at least six runs in five of their last six games. They’re on the road tonight, but they face the hittable Matt Shoemaker, who is making his first start since August 23rd.
Shoemaker can miss bats when he’s clicking, but he could be a bit rusty here, and there’s nothing like facing a red hot (and stacked) Yankees offense in your first game back.
That, and Shoemaker allows a .202 ISO, 47% hard hit rate, and 41% fly ball rate to right-handed hitters. There are a lot of strikeouts in this Yankees lineup, but ultimately, Shoemaker simply has too much power to work around.
I can’t go much deeper here in search for viable MLB DFS stacks, as this slate is just eight games over at DraftKings. You can still look at the Astros, and do note that the Brewers and Reds are waging war in a hitter’s park.
The pitching is probably just too good there to get excited about those sticks. Does that make it as simple as stacking the Braves or Yankees? Maybe, but that’s not always the case.
It may make sense to “get cute” and piece together some stacks involving the Mariners, Royals, or even the Pirates.
Whatever you do, hopefully my MLB DFS stacks breakdown helps you in some fashion. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
