MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Picks For FanDuel – 7/6/16


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.  You can use our formula for your own wanted and given stacks and pitchers.  This process wheels them all in alignment.

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). 

just have to say that Dallas Keuchel, Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki, Giancarlo Stanton and Rickie Weeks saved our bacon from a sheer butt kicking Tuesday night.  Since we used such cheap pitchers, we were able to use Donaldson on 23 rosters out of 63, and liked Stanton so much we placed him on the same amount.  Since we had Dallas Keuchel, it made up for longshots Carlos Rodon and Mike Foltynewicz being so poor.  We almost broke even on the night.

It is another reason why the formula works.  We have the link at the top of every Fanduel Article and this page.  You have 30 – 63 Rosters, and you hope 2 – 3 have a chance to win on any night.  The more lineups we put in with stacks being wheeled, the more times a unique player comes up on the board with little ownership, that may go off and be the difference in winning a  GPP.

We like playing the $1 and $3 Sac Fly contests, because this system is situated for it. 

Another rule of thumb is to have 10 or 12 players to have in mind for filling our rosters.  3 – 4 expensive players, 3 – 4 midlevel and 3 -4 bargains, that can be combined with the two team stacks per roster.  Use the, as much as you can.  If need be check the quick player replace to see how many times you have used a player once you have completed all of your lineups.


July 6, 2016: All 8 Games on Main Slate

(If you want to avoid the sharps with DFS, please head to – 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

San Francisco Giants vs Jorge De La Rosa (De La Rosa has a 1.60 WHIP and doesn’t miss bats too often, while the Giants make good contact.)

Blue Jays vs Ian Kennedy (Has given up 20 HRs in 93.4 IP and has a 5.37 ERA on the road, not a good recipe going against the Blue Jays lineup.)

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Colin Rea (despite having a great game vs the Yankees at home, the RHP came off a June where he had a 6.15 ERA and is pitching in Chase Field.)

Tampa Bay Rays vs Jered Weaver ( The Angels Veteran does not miss many bats, and the score on Tuesday of 13 – 5 could mean a lot of runs all series.)

LA Angels vs Drew Smyly (The BVP is too limited to account for – even though he has fared well against the Rays individual batters.  What is real is the 19 HRs and 5.33 ERA in his 96.2 Innings Pitched this season.  C.J. Cron is off the chart hot right, and Smyly will have to fend off Mike Trout and Albert Pujols too.  Smyly has also had 3 bad games in a row, yielding 16 Runs in his last 18.2 IP)

3 Pitchers to use

Johnny Cueto, COL @ SF, $10, 800 (Cueto has been absolute money in DFS this year, and has to be played.  Colorado has been in a massive hitting slump on this road trip.)

Jaime Garcia, PIT @ ARI, $8300 (Garcia has good numbers vs the Pirates, and with Jeff Locke as the opposite starting pitcher, this is a good chance for a win.)

Shelby Miller, SD @ ARI, $6900 (Call it a hunch, but it is also backed with good BVP numbers versus the Padres in a limited sample size.  You have to roster a cheap pitcher sometimes to get the expensive bats.

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.

SF/TOR (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

SF/ARI (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

SF/TB (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

SF/LAA (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

TOR/ARI (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

TOR/TB (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

TOR/LAA (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

ARI/TB (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

ARI/LAA (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 3 Rosters)

TB/LAA (Johnny CuetoJaime GarciaShelby Miller,= 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 12 rosters, 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 (our partner website for a great list of player to select from, that isn’t exclusive to team stacks).
