MLB Top Stacks for Fanduel and Draftkings August 15th

Welcome back, everyone! This MLB Top Stacks article will be a daily Article here at DFS Army, where I will do my best to highlight my top offenses to target each day for Fanduel and Draftkings. In the list below the MLB Top Stacks, I will also list my Top5 at each position to give you more ideas on how to construct stacks today.

If you have any questions hit me up in the DFS Army VIP chat shoot me a DM @CeeGee and we can chat one-on-one about your process.

I appreciate you taking time out of your day to check out the article 🤟❤💯

(NOTE – these could change later in the day as more lineups are confirmed) 

I will update this later in the day when lineups are confirmed so make sure you follow me on Twitter so you don’t miss any of the updates @DailyRotoSharks

I use this sheet daily to help me identify top stacks on each slate

I’ve included the RAW number to show you the number that is being Ranked. This is the resulting number from my formula each day and should help illustrate exactly how much separation there is from team to team on the list. Some days there are very clear teams ranked in the Top 1 or 2. Other days they are grouped much tighter.

I’ve added a new Leverage Column, which is simply the Projection (minus) the Ownership. In theory, this should help us see who we can target at lower ownership but still a solid projection.

Let’s see how the rankings shake out below and let’s figure out where we can gain our edge today.

Twins

  • The Twins are the Top stack by a wide margin tonight. I have more faith in them, overall, as an Offense than I do in the Mariners, who were the overwhelming top stack last night, and they fell flat on their face. Pedro Payano allows a 462/200 woba/iso to righties with a 35% hard contact rate. Against lefties, he gives up a 41% fly-ball rate in a small sample size. The temperature will be nearing 100 degrees tonight in Arlington and when it gets that hot the ball really flies in this park.

Rangers

  • The other side of this game is in play as well and I don’t think anyone would blame you for going with a full YOLO Game stack here. Pineda has been ok this year, but if we dig deeper we see he’s due to come back down to earth. On the year he has a 4.58 xFIP and gives up a 37% fly-ball rate and 35% hard contact rate against left-handed pitching. Against right handers he’s really bad, giving up a 334/217 woba/iso along with a 44% fly ball rate and 46% hard contact rate. This game currently has a 12 run total and I’m expecting way over that number here tonight!

The MLB Research Station is my #1 source for research every single day and is one of the VIP Only tools our members have access to daily. Everything from wOBA and ISO vs the Handedness of today’s starting pitcher, to Average Exit Velocity this tool will cut your daily research time in half. If you’re familiar with Myself and Ben you already know the time we’ve put into the “Sheets” and we’re extremely happy to bring them over here to the DFS Army!

Reds 

  • Wacha has been getting rocked this year and I don’t expect that to end tonight in Cincinnati. On the year vs lefties, he allows a 351/216 woba/iso along with a 37% fly ball rate and a 39% hard contact rate. Against righties, he’s even worse allowing a 415/260 woba/iso along with a 41% hard contact rate. This is a great ballpark for hitting and it’s going to be hot and humid tonight, perfect conditions for the Red to do some damage here in front of the home crowd!

Indians

  • Currently ranked 3rd in projection but ranked 11th in ownership is the Indians tonight against the Yankees. Chad Green is the starter for the Yankees tonight. He serves as an opener usually be we don’t know yet who (if anyone) will come in early after him. On the season Green allows a 339/161 woba/iso to lefties with a 39% fly-ball rate and 51% hard contact rate. Against righties, he’s even worse allowing a 354/208 woba/iso with a 43% fly-ball rate and a 43% hard contact rate. If we’re going to get more than 1 inning against Chad Green this is a fantastic low owned spot for the Tribe in the Bronx!!!

Batter Rankings 08/15

These rankings are not site-specific and are intended to give you a solid pool of players to build your lineups from. I’m going to use the standard positions, Catcher through Outfield in these rankings so be aware of that if you’re constructing teams on Draftkings where some players can play multiple positions.

I will use the 😍 ADORE feature in the MLB Domination Station to increase the projection of each of these players by 15%. Doing this will allow me to get MORE of them throughout all of my lineups.
