4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 6/27/16
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. As always, we will not be including today's game at Coors Field here. Coors Field is dope for DFS, but you likely don't need me to tell you that. Here are the other teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.
New York Yankees
Chi Chi Gonzalez had a few issues his first foray into the Majors. Even though he had a 3.90 ERA, he issued more walks than strikeouts on his way to a 5.59 SIERA, resulting in his starting the 2016 season down in the minors. As he rejoins the Texas Rangers for a second go-round, there are reasons to believe he hasn't quite resolved those issues just yet.
Gonzalez made 14 starts at Triple-A prior to his re-promotion, and while he was able to limit his walks, his strikeout rate was still just 15.9%. He had shown significant improvement over his past five starts, striking out 21.9% of the batters he faced, but even that might be a bit concerning as he makes the jump to the big leagues. The New York Yankees' offense is certainly not great, but with the tremendous park they've got, they could still push forth a solid outing.
When you check out the pricing on the Yankees' lineup for today on FanDuel, one thing leaps off the page and smacks you square in the face: Mark Teixeira is only $2,300. This isn't to gloss over how horrendous Teixeira was this year prior to his injury, but a guy that cheap batting fifth at Yankee Stadium should just hold an automatic slot on your roster. It certainly doesn't hurt that he did this yesterday.

If Teixeira's time on the shelf helped correct whatever was ailing him earlier, we could be in for a few days of some sweet, sweet salary relief and quality production.
