Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks to Target for September 8, 2020

Our daily fantasy baseball stacks column cooled off a bit on Saturday. After a nice start, my top stacks going into the weekend disappointed, with the Pirates being a bad reach, and the Yankees failing to deliver in Camden Yards.

Even the Twins (four runs) didn’t get the job done on a night where the Angels, Nationals, and Red Sox ruled the day.

Even the best MLB DFS stacks can be hit or miss, but if you play the right matchups at the right time, magic can happen. I’m seeing a few more daily fantasy baseball stacks that look pretty appealing for Tuesday, so let’s break them down to see why we might want to use them.

This insight is for the MLB DFS scene, but if you want to bet on MLB games, consider using my vote of confidence for these offenses to target winning wagers at the best MLB sportsbooks.

Chicago Cubs

Let’s try this again. The last time the Cubs faced Tyler Mahle, I fired up some Cubs stacks, assuming Chicago’s string of lefties would give Mahle serious troubles.

They honestly did initially, as they donged him twice. Mahle regrouped and whiffed them 11 times en route to his best performance of the year, however.

I doubt that happens again.

Mahle has been rock solid to start 2020, but he has traditionally been battered by left-handed hitters. He’s showing reverse splits thus far, but I’ll be stacking Cubs and betting on his past, rather than this year’s small sample size.

Philadelphia Phillies

The last time I went out of my way to target Martin Perez, it didn’t go as planned. My Toronto Blue Jays stack eventually panned out nicely, but they got worked when Perez was in the game.

The veteran southpaw has been slightly better than expected to start 2020, but he doesn’t make enough bats miss, and he gives up too much contact.

That’s a bad combination against the Phillies, who can be rather explosive and operate out of a hitter’s paradise. Bryce Harper heads a stacked lineup that boasts a .379 wOBA AND .246 ISO against southpaws. I think Perez is in trouble on Tuesday.

San Diego Padres

A stacked Padres offense has a nice matchup at home tonight, where they’ll take on Chi Chi Gonzalez.

Gonzalez traditionally fares much better against right-handers than left-handers, but over the past two years, he’s still having issues across the board.

I’d certainly suggest guys like Eris Hosmer, Trent Grisham, Jason Castro, and Jake Cronenworth from the left side first (Chi Chi allows a .389 wOBA and .238 ISO to L), but you shouldn’t feel awkward about forcing in mashers like Manny Machado or Fernando Tatis.

Gonzalez simply doesn’t miss enough bats, and in 2020, he’s having major control issues against righties. The ballpark isn’t ideal, but San Diego is in a prime spot to fire away and generate a bunch of runs.

Toronto Blue Jays

This is a game that is rather stackable from both sides. However, given Taijuan Walker’s success against right-handed power (.071 ISO), I’m more inclined to buy Toronto here.

J.A. Happ used to be a pretty useful pitcher that allowed hard contact, but at least missed bats. He’s no longer doing the latter, and his numbers against the right side of the plate (.345 wOBA, .234 ISO, 43% fly ball rate, 41% hard hit rate) are positively ghastly.

Even the best daily fantasy baseball stacks can go wrong, but my goodness, is this a terrific spot for the Jays.

Toronto offers five or more hitters that wreck southpaws, depending on the lineup they go with. They’re probably my favorite stack of the day, and it’s not particularly close.

Summary

When searching for the top MLB DFS stacks, you need to assume a little risk, and attack the best situations possible.

Sometimes it means targeting quality pitchers in less than ideal spots, but if you can, the play is to get solid offenses in viable parks against pitchers who give up hard contact.

That’s mostly the case with the MLB DFS stacks listed above. A lot of the pitchers going up against these offenses have extreme splits, and if things break our way, it’ll be a fun day.

These four offenses will take up most of my hitting exposure, but as always, be sure to differentiate things and do your own research. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck in your daily fantasy baseball contests!
