MLB DFS 4/14/22 – Top Stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel

Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks for 4/14/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall stacks for today’s main slate. Last year was an extremely big year for the Karma team in MLB, and we are looking to continue that success in 2022. 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…

Coors Field

We have a small six game slate on tap tonight, with heavy attention getting pushed onto two games. Typically, on a Coors slate I will avoid listing that game in this section to avoid the obvious, but we just aren’t presented with a ton of pivots tonight. The pitchers in this game are pretty average all around, with Justin Steele and Kyle Freeland both leaning ground balls over strikeouts. They’re both lefties that are much worse vs right-handed hitters — so that is where the main focus will be. I will note that the Rockies only have one left-handed pitcher to bring out of the bullpen — so if full stacking, including lefties is perfectly fine. Overall, I would probably lean Rockies over Cubs, but whichever one comes in lower owned is probably the better move given how closely they grade out. Some of the value guys like Clint Frazier and Randal Grichuk are likely to pick up the highest ownership on DraftKings.

Los Angeles Dodgers

And the clear second spot for offense is the Dodgers who match up with Reiver Sanmartin and the Reds bullpen. Given that we don’t really know how long Sanmartin is going to pitch, I wouldn’t isolate one side of the plate in my Dodgers stacks. The top seven or eight guys in this lineup have a .200+ ISO over the last two years, and they will continue to be a top stack almost daily this season. It all comes down to OWN% in tournaments, if they end up more popular than Coors Field I would lean there, if not then I’m fine grabbing the full five man stack in my main lineup. Be conscious of what OWN% the stack has as well, and I am 100% fine adding in guys like Cody Bellinger to lower my overall ownership just because he hits down in the order.

Detroit Tigers

Detroit is my favorite lower-owned stack today, against Zack Greinke. As I noted above, this slate is very straightforward offensively and it’s 100% fine to get off the board especially in larger-field contests. Kansas City has the higher implied run total in this game, so I like pivoting to the lower-owned side when the pitching match-ups are both attackable. Greinke is what he is at this point, he’s had an amazing career but isn’t the Greinke of old. He doesn’t strike guys out, and relies entirely on his elite control. Over the last two seasons he’s been pretty bad against righties, giving up over a .200 ISO and .346 wOBA in the split. He will see a good amount of righties tonight, and the few lefties here — Austin Meadows and Javy Baez — have power. Spencer Torkelson is my favorite play, however, batting from the right side. This is one of the best prospects in baseball and he finally hit his first big league HR yesterday. Once one leaves the yard they could come in bunches, and Grienke doesn’t have the swing and miss stuff to beat him multiple times through the order.
