4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 6/10/19
The Colorado Rockies are at home all week, and while they could certainly run up the score against Yu Darvish tonight, this isn't necessarily a must-have spot, particularly with an expensive Chris Sale ($11,800) having a tempting matchup at Fenway against the Texas Rangers. Luckily, if you choose to ride with Sale, there are some cheaper stacking options available to us to make things work.
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. As usual, we will not include today's game at Coors Field in these recommendations. You already know that you want bats at Coors when you can afford them, and you don't need us to tell you. Here are the other teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.
They take on Odrisamer Despaigne, a 32-year-old with a career 4.94 ERA and 4.70 SIERA, who's never shown a strikeout rate above 20% at the Major League level. While he's posted a 3.34 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in Triple-A this year, there's nothing in his underlying numbers to suggest some big turnaround is on the horizon. In 2018, Despaigne put up a 4.57 SIERA, 18.6% strikeout rate, and a 10.1% walk rate over 39 big league innings, and he also allowed a 38.6% hard-hit rate.
Of course, Trea Turner ($3,900), Anthony Rendon ($4,400), and Juan Soto ($3,900) are all great plays if you can afford them, and as noted in today's daily helper, Rendon, in particular, is having a phenomenal season.
But if you're looking for the bargain bin, then Matt Adams ($2,700), Howie Kendrick ($2,900), and Adam Eaton ($3,000), and Brian Dozier ($2,700) all check in on the cheap. Kendrick has been excellent at the plate and has the Statcast numbers to back it up, and although Dozier hasn't had great results against righties this year, he's produced a promising 40.7% hard-hit rate and 45.4% fly-ball rate in the split. Victor Robles ($3,100) also has some upside despite hitting at the bottom of the order due to his blend of pop and speed.
