Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks – Sunday, September 24
Only two Sundays left in the long 162-game schedule. As teams are clinching playoff spots and others are eliminated from the hunt, we are running out of time in the baseball DFS season as well. Put your favorite daily fantasy baseball stacks from the article below in our lineup optimizer and hit calculate. You can let it fill in the rest of the spots for you or choose your personal favorites from the MLB Player Lab.
Max Scherzer vs. New York Mets
Park – Citi Field
Scherzer has had another stellar campaign in 2017 as he is 15-6 with a 2.59 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and has 253 strikeouts in 191.1 innings. Scherzer is on pace to have a WHIP under 1.00 for the fourth time in the last five years. When you limit base runners to that extent, you are bound to have success. This will also be his sixth straight season with a 10.1 or higher K/9. In summary, he’s awesome. He has also been excellent on the road this season, posting a 1.84 ERA and 0.82 WHIP away from Nationals Park. Roll with him again Sunday.
Chase Anderson vs. Chicago Cubs
Park – Miller Park
After never posting an ERA below 4.00 in his career, Anderson has made major strides this season as he enters Sunday 11-3 with a 2.74 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 120 strikeouts in 128 innings. He has been excellent over his last three starts, allowing only one run to go along with 15 strikeouts over 16.1 innings. Consistency has been a big plus for Anderson as he has allowed three runs or less in each of his last 14 appearances. Miller Park has treated Anderson kindly this season as he has a 2.34 ERA and 0.99 WHIP at home. Anderson presents a nice option in the mid-tier price range Sunday.
Boston Red Sox vs. Jackson Stephens (Cincinnati Reds)
Park – Great American Ball Park
Stephens has only made five appearances in the majors this season, two of which have been starts. He has not had much success as he has a 4.80 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 13 strikeouts over 15 innings overall. The concerning part about Stephens is that he did not pitch well in the minors this season either, posting a 4.92 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 110 strikeouts in 139 innings at Triple-A. This looks like a receipt for disaster against a hot Red Sox team.
Players to consider stacking: Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Devers and and Jackie Bradley Jr.
Atlanta Braves vs. Nick Pivetta (Philadelphia Phillies)
Park – SunTrust Park
Pivetta has had a terrible season for the Phillies, posting a 6.57 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 129 strikeouts in 122 innings. The fact that Sunday will be his 25th start of the season shows just how bad the Phillies rotation is. He’s been even worse of late, allowing at least six runs in three of his last six games. The road has not been kind to him either as he has a 7.29 ERA and 1.75 WHIP away from Citizens Bank Park. This is the day to stack your lineup with the Braves offense.
Players to consider stacking: Freddie Freeman, Nick Markakis and Ender Inciarte
