Welcome to another MLB DFS Game Theory for the 2021 Season! This year we have a good amount of overlap between the NBA & MLB season, so lots of money to be made. This article will highlight my top plays at each position, and in the analysis portion of the article, we will highlight my top pitchers and stacks for the day.
Today’s pitching features a ton of aces. First, we have Gerritt Cole and Shane Bieber on the upper end of the options. I love the upside for both of these guys, they have a similar floor and ceiling, but I think that Cole slightly edges out Bieber for me today because of the matchup. Cole is the second best pitcher in New York, behind the one and only Jacob DeGrom of course. His 50:3 K:BB ratio in 31.2 innings is extremely impressive.
If you want to pay up for the bats- who are at a premium tonight, which we will talk about below, I reccommend going mid-tier with Andrew Heaney. He gets a good matchup vs the Mariners, and other than his first abysmal start of the season, he’s cruised to a 25:5 K:BB in 17.2 innings.
Yankees- Stanton, Judge, Urshela, LeMahieu, Torres are my main targets here. Pretty obvious so I’ll just leave it at that, but I want atleast 2+ Yankees tonight in my lineups. They get Skubal and the Yankees have some powerful righties in the lineup.
Marlins- Aguilar, Rojas, and Duvall are my main targets here. Jon Lester is… still in the MLB? Somehow, the 37 year old is still in the bigs, and after a really tough season last year for the Cubs, he’s trying to revitalize himself with a new team, the Washington Nationals. Stack righties here!
Braves- Robbie Ray fell off really hard. He used to be one of my favorite pitchers to roster with his K upside every night but now he’s just a mid-level talent that has to keep his walks down. I like the Braves righties here.
