MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Picks For FanDuel – 7/9/16


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). 

We enter another 4 days before the  ALL Star Break where we have 4 straight slates that will carry Coors Field on them.  We are always going to advise doing a bunch of team stacks wheeled with each other, including Colorado, and we are also recommending you enter all single entry (or low entries max tournaments.)

You at least have a fighting chance to won some money playing FanDuel, with a heavy emphasis on HRs and pitcher wins.  Forget about playing against all of the sharps and rosters on DraftKings. Below we have a full write up on Coors Field for you to read.

Read our latest article about playing against Coors Field nights.

If you decide to play, we have you covered. 


July 9, 2016: All 5 Games on the main night slate (We Don’t Advise Playing Coors Field Slates In Either FanDuel or DraftKings for just a few rosters in GPP’s, and if you want to avoid the sharps, please head to – and use the PROMO CODE: HELP25  – to start playing against normal players that are just looking to play a few dollars)

II you are also looking for premium value plays, we are subscribers over at We often find our 12 players outside of the team stacks to use there. These are great for team stacks of 3 players for each of them, or if you have a Pitcher and a team stack on common, you will need to find 1 extra player.  That one guy may not always be from another stacked team in your wheels.

Personally, Chuck Booth (Josh Robbins) and I will focusing more on Fanduel to select guys.  We apologize for not being able to bring this sooner. but we had to really perfect this before bringing it forth.  It has been a wild ride already.  Look out world!!  Other player’s cash is 10 seconds from a toe-tag!!

Stacking Options  – Todays Rankings

Colorado Rockies vs  Jerad Eickhoff

Philadelphia Phillies vs Tyler Anderson

LA Dodgers vs Luis Perdomo

Texas Rangers vs Ricky Nolasco

Washington Nats vs Logan Verrett

3 Pitchers to use

We had to go ace, midlevel and bargain basement to support our Coors Field Slate.  Scherzer is the best pitcher on the board – and is full value against a Mets offense that is fully decimated with injuries.

McCarthy registered 51 FPP in his 1st start, and is going against SD< who struggles against RHP, while they crush LHP.  Minnesota also fares decently against LHP, however Texas could have a field day on Nolasco, so the $5600 it costs for Martinez is worth it.

Max Scherzer, WSH @ NYM, $11, 900

Brandon McCarthy, SD @ LAD, $7900

Nick Martinez, MIN @ TEX, $5600

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.  All of these wheeled stacks are 3 rosters of the pitchers combined with the offenses

PHI/COL ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

PHI/WSH ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

PHI/LAD ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

PHI/TEX ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

COL/WSH ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

COL/LAD ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

COL/TEX ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

WSH/LAD ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

WSH/TEX ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

LAD/TEX ( Max Scherzer, Brandon McCarthyNick Martinez )

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  – 5 ) 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).
