4 FanDuel MLB Stacks for 9/15/16
Stacking can be a controversial topic in many daily fantasy sports, but you can count baseball as a glaring exception. Here, it's universal.
Using multiple players on the same team on a given day presents you with the opportunity to double dip. If one of your players hits an RBI double, there's a good chance he drove in another one of your guys. When you get the points for both the run and the RBI, you'll be climbing the leaderboards fast.
Each day here on numberFire, we'll go through four offenses ripe for the stacking. They could have a great matchup, be in a great park, or just have a lot of quality sticks in the lineup, but these are the offenses primed for big days that you may want a piece of.
Premium members can use our new stacking feature to customize their stacks within their optimal lineups for the day, choosing the team you want to stack and how many players you want to include. You can also check out our hitting heat map, which provides an illustration of which offenses have the best combination of matchup and potency.
Now, let's get to the stacks. Here are the teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers are the top stack of the day by a wide margin, and their left-handed sticks are particularly enticing. Archie Bradley gives up a ridiculous amount of hard contact to left-handed hitters (38.6% hard-hit rate), which is good for the eighth-highest mark in baseball among qualified pitchers. The Dodgers are extremely potent from the left side and will likely be trotting out Adrian Gonzalez, Corey Seager, Yasmani Grandal, Joc Pederson, Josh Reddick, and Chase Utley, all of whom hit righties very well.
One of the best offenses over the second half of the season, Los Angeles also get a huge ballpark boost moving to Chase Field, which sits fifth in park factor.
If all that isn't enough to sway you, starter Rubby De La Rosa got pulled from yesterday's D-Backs' game after the first inning. If Bradley gets chased early, the Dodgers will get to tee-off against a depleted Arizona bullpen, which is already among the worst in the MLB with a 4.29 SIERA that ranks next to last.
Lock and load.
