3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 9/28/17

The Athletics have been bashing the ball around the yard and have another sweet matchup on tap tonight. Is that enough to make them Thursday's top MLB DFS stacking option?

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.

Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics are on fire at the plate and they will look to continue their torrid pace against Miguel Gonzalez of the Texas Rangers this evening.

In 150 innings pitched, Gonzalez has recorded a 5.44 SIERA, a 14.4% strikeout rate, and an 8.2% walk rate. Both sides of the plate have hammered him, as he has allowed lefties to sock him for a .364 wOBA while same-sided bats have bashed him for a 31.0% hard-hit rate and 42.9% fly-ball rate.

As we build around the A's stack, Khris Davis is a bad man against same-sided arms.

He's tattooed righties for a .365 wOBA and has been white-hot lately with three jacks in his last five contests.

While Davis is priced up a bit at $4,200 to reflect that run of good play, Matt Joyce provides some salary relief at $2,900. Even better than his cheap price, Joyce has an impressive batted-ball profile against righties with a 31.4% hard-hit rate and 45.5% fly-ball rate.

To round out the stack, Matt Chapman ($2,400) is a very affordable option, but still has plenty of pop -- he has recorded a .240 ISO in this situation.
