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


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). 

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Cleveland Indians

July 16, 2016: All 14 Games on the main slate (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) we refer you to (for player picks all day)

We don’t like most of the pitchers – and team stacks are pretty unpredictable on the 11 game contest schedule, so we are only putting forth 9 rosters for the night.

Stacking Options  – Todays Rankings

Kansas City Royals vs Mike Pelfrey

San Francisco Giants vs Luis Perdomo

Cincinnati Reds vs Jimmy Nelson

3 Pitchers to use

Jeff Samardzija, SF @ SD, $9200 (Samardzija is good to go 7 IP, and the Padres struggle against RHP.  Giants are a far superior team as well.)

Trevor Bauer, CLE @ MIN, $8600 (Check weather on this one as it looks like it may rain.  If there shows a rain potential rain delay, switch to Matt Shoemaker, CWS @ LAA, )

James Shields, CWS @ LAA, $7400 (Shields has been pretty good over his last 4 starts since being shelled on his 1at 3 GS, and has nice numbers BVP against the Halo’s in a pitcher friendly game.  I like this even if Bauer is negated because of weather concerns, and you implore Shoemaker for the roster.  It is essentially wheeling the game with the starters.  This practice is okay in using 3 pitchers on the night.)

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

KC/SF ( Jeff Samardzija, Trevor Bauer, James Shields, = 3 Rosters with team stacks + Pitchers)

KC/CIN ( Jeff Samardzija, Trevor Bauer, James Shields, = 3 Rosters with team stacks + Pitchers)

SF/CIN ( Jeff Samardzija, Trevor Bauer, James Shields, = 3 Rosters with team stacks + Pitchers)

These are just 3 of the 9 Lineups we will construct for the night (3 team stacks wheeled x 3 pitchers, in the end, each of the 3 teams will have 6 rosters, so each player will be listed a lot of ( 2 – 3) 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).
