Of all of my stack recommendations today, I will not have any one-offs not on this list. I have five stacks that I like, some probably a little obvious, but I think ownership will be spread out among all of these today.
And one stack I am going against my rule, so if it doesn’t work out, then please remind me that I am stupid not to follow my own rules!
We have 9 games on the slate today, and while the Yankees, Orioles, Mets and Phillies play doubleheaders today, we don’t get any of them on the main slate.
Check out the stacks below, follow me on Twitter (@hotdogdaily_DFS) and on DRAFT (hotdogphingers). Good luck tonight and may the force be with you!
GAME STACK – WASHINGTON NATIONALS @ PITTSBURGH PIRATES
1. Bryce Harper
2. Juan Soto
3. Daniel Murphy
4. Matt Adams
1. Corey Dickerson
2. Gregory Polanco
3. Colin Moran
4. Starling Marte
Analysis: I think the Nationals will garner quite a bit of ownership today, but again I believe it will be a bit spread out. I like this game overall as a game stack. The Nats are warming up and are coming off a 17-run game over the weekend. Things might be finally gelling for this team that struggled for most all of June. Bryce Harper is my favorite play from this game, and he is well overdue for a home run and a big day. The Nats get Ivan Nova, who has allowed a .358 wOBA and .220 ISO to lefties this season. Adams and Harper have solid early BvP numbers against Nova – 8-for-17 combined with 2 home runs, 7 RBI and 3 doubles. Murphy is 4-for-11 with 2 walks, Soto hasn’t faced him yet, but he’s destroying Nova’s pitch-types this season, especially the sinker, which Nova throws 40% of the time. Against sinkers, Soto owns a .522 wOBA and .286 ISO against. As for the Pirates, they get rookie Jefry Rodriguez who has struggled early on in the bigs, especially lefty bats as he owns .414 wOBA and .281 ISO against. Dickerson, Polanco and Moran are a cheaper stack out of everyone on the Stack today as a 3-man lefty stack. I like Marte just because he hits righties better than lefties, has 3 straight games with 2 or more hits and Rodriguez owns a .226 ISO against righties this season.
