Offenses to Target for FanDuel Stacking

Arizona's top of the lineup against Kyle Kendrick.

By now I'm sure you know the Coors Field - Kyle Kendrick drill. The biggest run producing park and (what seems to be) the biggest run producing pitcher in Kendrick. In 14 starts this season, Kendrick has a 5.95 ERA, 6.10 FIP and only a 4.36 K/9 average. Normally I'd try and specify whether the right-handed bats or the left-handed bats were the better play, but I'm not sure you can go wrong. Lefties are slugging .570 and righties are not too far behind at .486. Definitely anchor your lineup with Paul Goldschmidt, and go from there. I also like AJ Pollock, Jake Lamb (or Yasmany Tomas if he plays 3B), and David Peralta.

Yankees LHB versus Sean O'Sullivan

The Bronx Bombers did a number on Phillies pitching last night and I've got no reason to believe their lefty heavy lineup can't handle Sean O'Sullivan. He hasn't made a ton of starts, but check out the slash line for lefties against O'Sullivan this season: .322/.394/.636 with a .427 wOBA. I'm targeting Brett Gardner, Brian McCann, Mark Teixeira (if he's back in the lineup), Chase Headley and Alex Rodriguez (if Tex is out).

Pittsburgh LHB versus Josh Smith

Picking on a guy who's making his first major league start is always worth a shot, especially in tournaments. The Pirates don't collectively have any eye-popping stats - even when just looking at their left-handed bats against right-handed pitching - but I still think there's value in the lefties at the top of their order. In my experience stacking Pirates bats, they often seem seldom owned, so if they go off against Smith tomorrow you can really climb the ladder in the standings. I'm targeting Gregory Polanco and Pedro Alvarez for my LHB and then either Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen or Josh Harrison.

Honorable Mention: Orioles LHB versus Joe Kelly

DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider for FanDuel Cash Games

Madison Bumgarner (SP, SFG) - $10,900

For as many aces as there are on the bump today, Bumgarner is my clear favorite in cash games. He faces a very strikeout prone offense in the Padres and you can count on MadBum for two things: 1) strikeouts and 2) going deep into the game. I also really like his chances for a W.

Carlos Martinez (SP, STL) - $9,500

I like Martinez here because he still has a lot of strikeout potential like Bumgarner but his price leaves me a little more breathing room to construct a lineup with. I think Carlos is good for 7+ stikeouts and if he can pitch around Giancarlo, the damage should be minimal and the Cardinals, who are pretty substantial favorites for a road team, should be able to nab a victory.

Honorable Mention - Chris Archer (SP, TAM) - $10,400


DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider for FanDuel Tournaments

Jon Niese (SP, NYM) - $7,400

A little more than I'd normally like to spend on a tournament arm, but the Brewers don't scare me a whole lot and I think Niese is good for 4-6 strikeouts.

Jeremy Guthrie (SP, KC) - $5,900

Picking on Seattle worked well for me last night. Guthrie has been far from good this season but I'm willing to take the risk against the anemic Mariners offense in their spacious stadium suited better for pitching than it is for hitters.

Honorable Mention: Chi Chi Gonzalez (SP, TEX) - $

DFS Infielders to Consider for FanDuel

Stephen Vogt (C, OAK) - $3,600

Vogt is playing in a great park for hitters and comes in hot, owning a .423 on-base percentage over the past two weeks.

Travis d'Arnaud (C, NYM) - $3,100

A bit cheaper than Vogt and with perhaps as much possible return on value, if not more. Travis is a .422 slugger against RHP and over the past 14 days that number is .533 overall.

Chris Davis (1B, BAL) - $3,400

Davis has the platoon advantage going against Joe Kelly, who has really been on a roller coaster this season from one performance to the next. If you don't want to pony up the cash for Goldy, then Davis is your guy.

Jimmy Paredes (2B, BAL) - $2,800

Highly favorable price tag considering the matchup. Paredes is slugging .533 over the past two weeks, handles right-handed pitching well, and should be at or near the top of the order.

Cliff Pennington (SS, ARI) - $2,600

A nice option if you want to punt shortstop or stick him in a D'Backs stack. Pennington has the platoon advantage and park factors in his favor, too.

Brad Miller (SS, SEA) - $2,200

Similar to Pennington above, the price is right for a punt and you get a little power upside with Miller, a .421 career slugger against righties.

DFS Outfielders to Consider for FanDuel

George Springer (OF, HOU) - $4,400

Springer is as hot as anyone in the league (4 HR, .462 batting average last two weeks) and a .403 on-base percentage against southpaws.

Charlie Blackmon (OF, COL) - $4,500

A nice addition to your outfield, even if you don't throw him in what will likely be a popular Rockies stack. Blackmon has a .542 slugging percentage over the past five series.

Randall Grichuk (OF, STL) - $3,600

Grichuk should be able to pick on the young Jose Urena. He's one of the reverse platoon types - a RHB with a .556 career slugging percentage against RHP.
