MLB Top Stacks for Fanduel and Draftkings August 17th

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 🤟❤💯

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 and gain leverage on the field.

** NOTE **

Some of this will likely update later in the day when lineups are confirmed.

I will make edits and post them in our DFS Army VIP chat so make sure you get signed up so you have access to all of the latest info before lock.


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


  • No real surprise here, the Rockies at home in Coors Field against a bad pitcher will always be a Top Stack option. Tonight they get a matchup with Hector Noesi, who, on the year has allowed a 326/200 woba/iso and a 50% fly-ball rate to lefties. Against righties, he gives up a 400/400 woba/iso along with a 52% fly-ball rate and 47% hard contact rate. He has a small sample this season but I’m not too concerned with that. The temperature will be pushing over 90 degrees tonight in Coors and the ball is gonna be jumpin tonight!


  • Ariel Jurado gives up a 329/176 woba/iso to lefties with a 36% fly ball rate and 45% hard contact rate. Against righties, he’s even worse allowing a 379/223 woba/iso and a 42% hard contact rate. Even without Nelson Cruz this Twins lineup is very dangerous 1 through 9 and I will be way overexposed to them tonight while everyone else chases the juicy matchup for the Rockies in Coors.

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!

MLB Top Stacks DFS Fanduel Draftkings


  • The Giants blew up last night and tonight they get another juicy matchup against a bad D’Backs starter. Taylor Clarke has been awful this year allowing a 374/269 woba/iso to lefties and only striking them out 14% of the time. Against righties, he has allowed a 400/289 woba/iso to go along with a 44% fly-ball rate. Big park upgrade here for all the Giants hitters and I think they’ll stay hot tonight in this matchup in Arizona.

Top Leverage Stacks

White Sox

  • We normally target pitchers vs the White Sox but not tonight as they currently have the #1 Leverage rating on the slate. The matchup with Jose Suarez is nothing to fear as he’s been getting rocked by right handers on the season. Against righties this year he’s allowing a 450/279 woba/iso along with a 39% fly ball rate and 43% hard contact rate with a strikeout rate of only 17.8%. The Sox can roll out 9 righties if they chose and I’ll have plenty of exposure to them all here tonight.

Batter Rankings 08/17

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.
