MLB DFS 4/15/22 – Top Stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel

Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks for 4/15/22! 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…

New York Yankees

We’ll start with an obvious spot with the Yankees facing off with Jordan Lyles in Baltimore. Lyles is a below-average pitcher that’s always been vulnerable to allowing power. We also have a 60 plate appearance sample size of him against this Yankees lineup, resulting in just 14% strikeouts. There’s power up and down this lineup, and above-average weather for this time of the year as well. They won’t be a secret, but I do think they are the top non-Coors stack tonight and a top option in all formats. Given the lackluster O’s bullpen, I wouldn’t isolate your stack to one side of the plate and instead roll with the full five-man stack.

Los Angeles Dodgers

We’ll then head to LA in what should be another high-owned spot — the Dodgers against Vladimir Gutierrez. Gutierrez is terrible against left-handed batters, and allows above-average hard hits to righties as well. Most people will be jamming in the left-handed hitters here, but I am 100% fine with including the righties in a full stack as well. Max Muncy, Freddie Freeman and Cody Bellinger grade out as the best overall plays for me. Like the Yankees, they will be catching heavy ownership so stacking the bottom of the order makes sense if you’re playing in bigger field GPPs.

Milwaukee Brewers

For a lower-owned stack we can look at the Brewers against Miles Mikolas. Mikolas is a solid real-life pitcher, but he struggles to generate swing and misses with a 16% strikeout rate over the last two seasons. Milwaukee started off very slow, but they’ve picked it up at the plate over the last few games. They have several players with power against right-handed pitching — and bounce-back candidates in Christian Yelich and Andrew McCutchen as well. Mikolas throws a lot of sinkers, so we can focus on the guys that hit that pitch well for the core of our stack. All of Kolten Wong, Willy Adames, Omar Narvaez and Rowdy Tellez own above-average wOBA marks against the pitch. I don’t think most people will be looking at this game, so we should get them at low-ownership in large field tournaments.
