Best MLB DFS Stacks to Consider Rostering for Thursday, September 3, 2020

Daily Fantasy Baseball September 3, 2020

It’s often easy to suggest MLB DFS stacks are obvious, but the popular stacks don’t always necessarily work, and sometimes we all get a little bit too cute.

If you’ve been rolling with my favorite daily fantasy baseball stacks, however, chances are you’ve been doing a good amount of winning.

The goal is to once again hit it big in MLB DFS tournaments, and the best way to do that is to hit on the best stack, or even combine a couple of quality MLB DFS stacks.

For Thursday, here are the best MLB DFS stacks to consider.

Washington Nationals

I don’t know if the Nats will be chalky beyond Juan Soto, who is obviously just unstoppable these days. Washington does have a lot of viable lefties to throw at Zach Eflin, however, and that could put the Phillies pitcher in a tough spot.

The Nationals get a nice park boost at Citizens Bank Park, but their bats could create some chaos when you look at Eflin’s issues (.375 wOBA, .257 ISO, 11% walk rate, 38% hard-hit rate, and 39% fly-ball rate) against left-handed hitters.

Soto headlines a nice group of lefties, which also features Eric Thames, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Adam Eaton.

Toronto Blue Jays

Give me all of the Blue Jays in this one. Before the season started, I predicted the Jays would be a team to fear (in some regard), and here they are, entering Fenway Park with a winning record.

On Thursday they offer loads of upside against Martin Perez, who sports a weak 4.58 ERA, along with a .345 wOBA and .184 ISO against right-handed hitters. Perez can’t get strikeouts like he used to, and he gives up way too much contract.

This is a recipe for disaster in this park, especially against a sea of capable Toronto righties.

The list of viable sticks is long here, but Randal Grichuk, Teoscar Hernandez, and Lourdes Gurriel all sport an ISO of .229 or better against left-handed pitching.

Chicago White Sox

Yes, Danny Duffy has been better this year than he was a year ago. He’s not necessarily always a guy we want to pick on – especially at home in a park that has largely been kind to pitchers.

That said, his whiffs go down against right-handed hitting, while he also allows a .317 wOBA and a .198 ISO against that side of the plate.

Against an endless string of nasty right-handed mashers like Jose Abreu, Luis Robert, and so many others, Duffy really has his work cut out for him in this spot.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Cody Bellinger is about to have himself a day.

Perhaps the Nats qualify as a contrarian stack to target on this slate, but the Dodgers capping things off as a third MLB DFS stack feels too good to ignore.

You can honestly always think about stacking Los Angeles, but I especially like them at home in a spot where their lefties can swing for the fences.

They’re the last game of the night and operating out of a fairly pitcher-friendly park, and they’re also rarely cheap. All of this could honestly suppress their ownership a bit, even though it shouldn’t.

Luke Weaver is a talented pitcher, but he’s off to a rough start this year and has an impossible task on the road. The matchup itself isn’t great just because of who the Dodgers are, but he’s also bringing in a .327 wOBA AND .186 ISO against lefties.

Weaver is an equal opportunity sad sack against both sides, though, so Mookie Betts and all of L.A.’s righties are in play. I certainly wouldn’t call Weaver a gas can usually, but in this spot, he might as well be.


The above daily fantasy baseball stacks are my favorite of this slate. Do keep in mind that things could change based on pitching scratches, as well as final lineups.

That, and this is a pretty small baseball slate. You’ll want to hedge your bets a bit no matter which route you go, but if you’re limiting your action, I’d mostly stick with the MLB DFS stacks listed above.
