4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 7/29/19
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 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.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Normally, we don't usually cover the Coors Field game in this piece, but on a seven-game slate that is massively impacted by the Coors game, we have to talk about both sides of it.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have the night's highest implied total (6.50) for their matchup with Jon Gray. While Gray is a decent pitcher who has pretty solid numbers at Coors, this Dodgers lineup is loaded with lefties, and left-handed bats have racked up a .340 wOBA and 43.8% hard-hit rate this season against Gray.
Cody Bellinger ($4,900) is super expensive, but he's worth it as he's tagged right-handers for a .443 wOBA, 50.7% hard-hit rate and 41.9% fly-ball rate in 2019. There's also Joc Pederson ($4,200) and Max Muncy ($4,400) on the high-priced side of things. Muncy owns a .381 wOBA and 42.7% hard-hit rate against righties while Pederson -- who should be in the leadoff spot -- has a .369 wOBA, 46.0% hard-hit rate and 42.9% fly-ball rate in the split.
The Dodgers offer up some modestly priced lefties, as well, with Corey Seager ($3,500), Alex Verdugo ($3,100) and Matt Beaty ($3,000) all possible starters. If Verdugo hits second, his usual spot against righties, he'll be one of the slate's highest-owned hitters.
Of course, you can tap into the Dodgers' right-handers, too, with Justin Turner ($4,300) and Will Smith ($3,000). Our models have Smith -- who donged 20 times in 268 Triple-A plate appearances this season -- as the slate's second-best point-per-dollar play, and with all the good options at first base tonight, the rookie backstop could go overlooked.
