4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 7/7/16
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 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.
Just a few days ago, Chi Chi Gonzalez made a start against these very same Minnesota Twins. Things went well!
Gonzalez lifted after recording 2 outs in the first. Trails 4-0.

Well, for the Twins, that is.
Gonzalez gets another go at it tonight when he'll try to bring down his career 5.66 SIERA. Gonzalez made 14 starts at Triple-A before rejoining the Texas Rangers, and in those outings, his strikeout rate was a mere 15.9%. That's a low enough number for stacking in the big leagues before you account for the dip he'll see in moving up a level, and it puts the Twins in a great spot to duplicate their big output from the last time they faced Gonzalez.
The beauty in stacking the Twins is that you're going to have some serious shots at finding value. Both Kennys Vargas and Eddie Rosario recently rejoined the team from the minors, and their prices are sitting near the minimum on FanDuel. Both have their very serious flaws, but when they're holding down spots in the middle of the order -- as they have done at times this week -- you'll want to give them a peep in a matchup and park this sweet.
