Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks for 4/7/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall stacks for today’s main slate. We got a lovely 10 game slate today and there are a ton of great ways to go. I will be providing Core Plays for every main slate this season — you can gain access to the Core Plays as well as our premium discord here. You can also try out the Core Plays package with a $5 daily pass. Let’s get to the stacks…
Toronto Blue Jays
First up is the Blue Jays, who get a great matchup against Spencer Howard. He is a pitcher we want to attack as he gives up a lot of hard hits and walks a decent amonut of guys as well. He is only throwing one pitch over 10% of the time besides his fastball and it’s his cutter. Danny Jansen gets the nod at catcher today and provides some value in an expensive Toronto team. Their hard hit % as a team so far sits over 50 and they are projected to have a 6.4 run total. Toronto makes for an elite stacking option today. It will be interesting to see how many full stacks we see with how pricey they are. That being said, there are ways to get a full stack here with some value pitchers on the mound.
We have already attacked the Pirates pitching this season and it worked out splendidly. This is probably my favorite stack for the day as they should come in lower owned than the others I have mentioned. They have been hitting well since opening day and also have some value plays in their starting lineup. Bryse Wilson had a 5.35 ERA last year along with giving up over 40 hits in just eight starts. This is exactly that kind of pitcher we want to attack and I can easily see this getting to double digits in runs with their bullpen also being weak. Corey Dickerson provides some salary relief here and is batthing fifth which makes it very easy to fit into a stack. Half of this lineup is hitting over 500. against Wilson and the matchup is just as good if not better than the previous two games.
The Phillies have come out firing to start the year. Hitting four home runs in their first two games and 13 total runs in that span as well. Daulton Jefferies is getting the nod at the mound for Oakland and in his few appearences it hasn’t gone very well. Sporting a 5.82 overall ERA and averaging 8 hits a game. There is a ton of power in this lineup and it should be on display today. The lefties are extra appealing with Jefferies being a righty. Kyle Schwarber and Bryce Harper are looking to get it going and this is a perfect spot to do so. Jean Segura has already gotten off to a hot start and is batting 2nd in the lineup today right in between the two I mentioned above. Realmuto was given the day off making Garrett Stubbs another value piece here and I don’t mind wrapping around the lineup for a stack here.
BONUS: The Cleveland Guardians are a great mini stack/one off play today. Winds are supposed to be blowing outwards over 15 mph. Using Jose Ramirez/Franmil Reyes is a great option if you can afford it!
