Welcome to the MLB DFS Stacks article - where we’ll be looking to highlight the best hitting stacks of the day. These recommendations are categorized as “Cash Game Stacks” and “Tournament Stacks” while outlining risk/reward situations. We will add additional context with other hitting/pitching options throughout the article.

Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our MLB News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.

We will be looking at the five-game main slate beginning at 7:10 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

LA Dodgers (at Colorado - RHP Jon Gray)

Coors Field has not disappointed in this Opening Series, as there have been 13 and 17 total runs respectively in the first two games. It should come as no surprise that the Dodgers have far and away the highest run-scoring projection of the night. In fact, their over/under is nearly two runs higher than the Padres, who are second in that category. Colorado RHP Jon Gray got smashed with a 6.69 ERA last season while allowing a .362 wOBA split to left-handed bats. Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, Max Muncy, and Gavin Lux make for primary picks.

San Diego (vs. Arizona - LHP Caleb Smith)

Caleb Smith isn’t a bad pitcher, but he’s running into a buzzsaw against the Padres tonight. Making matters even better for the San Diego offense is the fact that Arizona ranks 24th in bullpen WAR entering this season. I’ll be treading somewhat lightly with the Padres tonight, but Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Wil Myers lead the way while holding the platoon advantage.

Chicago White Sox (at LA Angels - RHP Alex Cobb)

After a few horrendous years, Alex Cobb returned to league average in 2020. I’m not buying it. Cobb has blow-up potential, and the Angels will be holding their breath while hoping he can somehow eat innings. Right-handed power has been his kryptonite in recent seasons, and the White Sox have plenty of that. Jose Abreu, Tim Anderson, and Luis Robert make for an appealing stack that rivals the Dodgers tonight.

Top Plays: Cody Bellinger (1B/OF), Jose Abreu (1B), Corey Seager (SS), Tim Anderson (SS), Justin Turner (3B), Max Muncy (1B/2B), Luis Robert (OF)

Top Value: Gavin Lux (2B), Andrew Vaughn (1B)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

San Francisco (at Seattle - RHP Chris Flexen)

The White Sox, Dodgers, Rockies, and Padres will get all the love tonight but don’t forget about both offenses from this San Francisco-Seattle matchup. Seattle RHP Chris Flexen holds an 8.07 ERA through 68 MLB innings, and the Giants could get to him tonight. Tommy La Stella, Mike Yastrzemski, and Alex Dickerson are the main lifts.

Seattle (vs. San Francisco - RHP Logan Webb)

I don’t mind stacking the Giants and Mariners together. Logan Webb is the definition of league average, and San Francisco has a below-average bullpen that ranks 18th in WAR heading into 2021. Evan White, Dylan Moore, and Kyle Seager lead the way with a cheap pick like Jake Fraley also in contention if he’s starting. Even if you aren’t stacking the Mariners, there’s plenty of value to sift through, which could help make a LAD or CWS stack work.
