Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Another fun MLB DFS slate is upon us come Tuesday, as 14 games hit the diamonds. This schedule includes a lot of tense matchups, while the league is also still recovering from some wild MLB trades on Monday.

If you’re getting a head start on your daily fantasy baseball research, I’m here to help. My goal in this post is to highlight the top MLB DFS stacks, while also touching on some that may go overlooked.

With that, here are the best daily fantasy baseball stacks to target for Tuesday, September 1.

San Francisco Giants

Uh, doy. I don’t know if you really need me to talk up Coors Field, but I’ll do so for two reasons, anyways. First, because a lot of the focus will understandably be on the Colorado Rockies.

Yeah, you can stack the Rockies against Kevin Gausman, and you certainly should. But the Giants could easily be a bit more contrarian. First, they’re not very good, and second, because they have the tougher draw in facing Jon Gray.

That said, the Giants have a slew of lefties to throw at Gray, and that’s traditionally the side of the plate that’s given him the most trouble.

Gray has given up all four of his 2020 home runs to lefties, too, while the talented pitcher is just 1-2 with a ghastly 6.55 ERA at home this year. San Francisco gets the big park bump, and the team as a whole has hung 14 runs against Gray in their last five meetings.

Houston Astros

I always love me some Astros, and the allure grows stronger on a slate where we have Coors Field and other capable offenses working together to keep ownership down.

This post isn’t here to just list every stack that is worth targeting, of course. If that was the goal, I’d list over half the teams today and be done in 10 seconds.

My goal is to point you to the top MLB DFS stacks – in my opinion, at least – and one is for sure going to be Houston. The Astros are at home and need to keep winning to keep pace with the Athletics, but they also get to battle a total gas can in Jordan Lyles.

Lyles (1-3, 9.25 ERA) has been bad in every regard this year. Obviously, he’s facing a dangerous Houston offense, but he’s on the road (where he owns an absurd 13.50 ERA in 2020), he’s having issues with the long ball (five allowed in five starts), and he simply can’t stop giving up runs.

Houston is loaded with nasty right-handed hitters, and they’ll be one of my top daily fantasy baseball stacks against Lyles, who is allowing a .413 BA, four dongs, and a 1.234 OPS to righties on the year.

Cleveland Indians

Mike Clevinger will not be making his scheduled Tuesday start, as he got traded to the San Diego Padres on Monday.

While that’s a bummer, Cleveland still has a good offense, and it gets a considerable boost in a matchup against the forever hittable Matt Harvey.

The Dark Knight was once quite good, but his days of dominating are long gone. He gives up way too much contact at this stage of his career, and he’ll be trying to keep it together against a team that can still take out even the best of pitchers.

Harvey has unsurprisingly been bad again in 2020, as he owns a disgusting 11.12 ERA after two starts. He’s racked up just six Ks in those two outings, while opponents own a .360 OBA, two homers, nine hits, and seven earned runs.

We shouldn’t expect Harvey to turn the corner anytime soon, either. The Dark Knight went 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA last year, and gave up 13 homers in just 12 starts. Expect more of the same and ride the Tribe to a win on Tuesday.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves offer as much upside as anyone, and it’s certainly hard not to love them in Fenway Park against Kyle Hart.

Nothing has gone right for Hart, who is facing an impossible task in a very dangerous ballpark. The lefty owns an ugly 13.00 ERA through his first three starts, and has failed to make it even four innings in any of those contests.

Hart is talented, but he’s just been so incredibly hittable (17 hits and 13 earned runs!), that we can’t trust him yet. I certainly won’t go out on a limb for him against a stacked and potent Braves offense that has a litany of nasty righties to throw at him.

Summary

That does it for my favorite MLB DFS stacks for Tuesday. I also am lending a cursory glance at other stacks like Milwaukee and Pittsburgh, while you can certainly build a case for the Dodgers, Red Sox, and a few others.

There are always going to be a lot of daily fantasy baseball stacks to like, and if you’re entering a lot of MLB DFS lineups, you can mix and match as needed.

As far as Tuesday’s top MLB DFS stacks go, however, the teams above are my favorites to pay off in a big way.

If you want to take these MLB DFS stacks and go the extra mile, consider betting on these teams at the top online sportsbooks.
