MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings – 4/27/16 – 2nd Lineup (Coors Field Factor)

Coors Field is still a hitting haven. While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB'ers to bat. Some of the organizational players will not hit as good on the road, with playing in the NL West, in cavernous parks like Dodger Stadium, Petco Park and AT & T Park, however the weight will only affect their overall numbers away from the thin air. Historic players like Larry Walker and Todd Helton displayed good road numbers, despite their gawdy home statistics, however they will never be looked in the same eye.

Coors Field is still a hitting haven. While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB’ers to bat. It is also the best place to set MLB Daily Fantasy Rosters based on lineup stacks.  Colorado has led the home averages in all but 2 years out of their 23 year existence for home batting average.

We are going to run a daily feature of a 2nd lineup every time there is a game played at Coors Field.  Lets face it, whatever you did yesterday would not have mattered much unless you had Andrew McCutchen in your roster.

This park continues to serve up fantasy points galore.

I absolutely am stacking versus Jon Niese, who owns a 7.94 ERA at Coors Field in 4 Game Starts.  Hello Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.

I think the Pirates are due for an offensive letdown tonight, and will choose top of the lineup hitters from the Nationals and Cubs to fill the roster instead.  Give Me Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy, Dexter Fowler and Anthony Rizzo.

Look for the Jays to salvage game three of this series against the Sox.

My process for picking Nick Tropeano has to be for value to load all the hitters.  I wouldn’t use him in FanDuel, but Draftkings only offers 4 points for the win.

I did go with Steven Wright on FanDuel as my only chucker.
