Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Player Picks For FanDuel 4/4/17


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.

Fanduel – 4/4/17 ( 8 Game Main Slate)

What We Will Give You – Daily During The Season

3 – 7 team stacking options ( We are going to draw most of our players from these squads)

SF Giants vs Patrick Corbin

Chicago Cubs vs Adam Wainwright

LA Dodgers vs Clayton Richard

Houston Astros vs Hisashi Iwakuma

Tampa Bay Rays vs CC Sabathia

3 – 5 Pitching candidates (High level, midlevel and budget).

Jake Arrieta, CHC @ STL, $10, 800

Kenta Maeda, SD @ LAD, $8600

Matt Shoemaker, LAA @ OAK, $8000

If you are looking for more players themselves than stacking options (as oppose to full lineup cards with a lot of advance for both FD/DK,  we refer you to (for player picks all day)

So we start of by saying that the Chicago Cubs will be a favorable stack vs Adam Wainwright, however check weather for issues that may arise.

A contingency pitcher for Jake Arrieta is Johnny Cueto, and the stack team to replace would the Colorado Rockies in hitter friendly Miller Park.

We love the Rays to light up CC Sabathia, and in particular Evan Longoria speedbags him.

Kenta Maeda at $8600 is the highest Vegas favorite to win his game tonight and the Dodgers offense looked awesome yesterday.

Finally Matt Shoemaker was a fantastic DFS player in the midseason during 2016, and we like him to beat Oakland tonight.

Now here is what we are going to do for today’s MLB DFS FanDuel style.

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.

Team Stacks Wheeled with Pitchers 3 Rosters for every two team stack combo.

SF/TB (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

SF/CHC (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

SF/LAD (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

SF/HOU (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

TB/CHC (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

TB/LAD (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

TB/HOU (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

CHC/LAD (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

CHC/HOU (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

LAD/HOU (Jake Arrieta, Kenta Maeda, Matt Shoemaker)

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 clubs will have 12 STACKED rosters, so each player will be listed 3 –  5 times each on average.  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).  Should you choose to use your own stacks it is easy to workout the wheeled stacks. Take the 1st team you ranked for a stack, and write all of the teams with it.  Once you have completed that, you take  the team to the right in the 1st stack, and run down the right side for all the clubs underneath in the lines.  Each time you complete one club, you go down one line to the far right to follow the same template, until you hit your final two clubs.  Each wheeled 2 team stack will have all pitchers you are going to roster to be combined with it.  We like to use 3, 5, 7 or 9 team stack

If you’re not familiar with the points breakdown, here’s the format utilizing a $35 million salary cap.

Scoring System:

1 Starting Pitcher (SP)

1 Catcher (C)

1 First Baseman (1B)

1 Second Baseman (2B)

1 Third Baseman (3B)

1 Short Stop (SS)

3 Outfielders (OF)
