MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Picks For FanDuel – 7/3/16
Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner)
One of the biggest blunders made by many gamblers is betting against themselves. We are going to simplify the process, so if you win, you can really win – none of this barely break even nonsense.
Our new Draft Strategy is now here. Please read after the post.
Now here is what we are going to do for today’s MLB DFS FanDuel style.
We Will Give You – Daily
3 – 7 team stacking options ( We are going to draw most of our players from these squads).
3 – 5 Pitching candidates (High level, midlevel and budget).
(If you want to avoid the sharps with DFS, please head to www.fanpicks.com – and use the PROMO CODE: HELP25 – to start playing against normal players that are just looking to play a few dollars)
Stacking Options – Todays Rankings
Washington Nationals vs John Lamb (Even if it is a bench game, love the Nats RHB here. Lots of their guys already had games off the other day though, so I doubt they will give everyone a day off. Wilson Ramos, Danny Espinosa, Jayson Werth (or Michael Taylor), to add with Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy heere.
Texas Rangers vs Kyle Gibson (Gibson doesn’t miss many bats, and there are plenty of LHB power guys here. )
St. Louis Cardinals vs Chase Anderson (Anderson’s last 3 games have been awful. Cardinals offense is always dangerous).
Tampa Bay Rays vs Mike Pelfrey (Pelfrey gets lit up almost every time he takes the mound )
Cole Hamels, TEX @ MIN, $10, 100 (Best value of the pitchers on the day. Jon Lester and Noah Syndergaard is a crapshoot who will win the game, and should be faded. Corey Kluber is in Toronto, and Hamels has the best chance for a win, and is less money than the other guys. Minnesota might have wasted all of their bullets plating 17 runs Saturday.
Michael Wacha, MIL @ STL, $7400 (If there continue to be weather problems in STL, just change you quick player replace move to McHugh.)
Team Stacks will most likely have 3 – 4 players on each club and is preferred if they are in order of the batting lineup. In some case ministacks of 2 – with them back to back in the Batting Order can be used in expensive player picks.
TEX/STL (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh = 3 rosters)
TEX/STL (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh = 3 rosters)
TEX/WSH (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh = 3 rosters)
TEX/TB (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh = 3 rosters)
TEX/LAA (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
STL/WSH (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
STL/TB (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
STL/LAA(Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
TB/LAA(Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
TB/WSH (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
WSH/LAA (Hamels, Wacha, McHugh =3 rosters)
These are just 3 of the 30 Lineups we will construct for the night (5 team stacks wheeled x 3 pitchers, in the end, each of the 5 teams will have 12rosters, so each player will be listed a lot of (4 – 6) times each. If you like the conventional way of selecting players. we refer you to dailyrotohelp.com (our partner website for a great list of player to select from, that isn’t exclusive to team stacks).
