MLB DFS Projections and Lineup Optimizer Values: September 27

Great twelve game main slate today with no rain issues. I’m also going to call a HR in the 3rd set against Berrios on a 2-2 curveball to tie Roger Maris and then a 9th set Grand Slam to break the record just in case that happens why not.

It’s a daily weekday MLB article that will hopefully show you new tools on RG as well as choices and analysis based on these tools.

Today’s FanDuel and DraftKings MLB DFS Projection overview

There are ways to get edges in DFS MLB like stacking a lineup or targeting guys higher in the order and more likely to see an extra batsman and we always have to find value bats that constantly change every slate that allow us to fit as many guys as we know are more likely to hit HRs and get those cap games that we need to win tournaments. I will focus on “main slate” of the day, but you can still find plenty of reviews for “early slate” games on RG and feel free to leave suggestions in the comment sections for any strategies/tools you’d like to see here!

This article is intended to highlight some of the most useful RG tools for MLBincluding our industry leading MLB DFS projection and MLB range optimizer, with some choices and analysis along the way. Let’s go!

MLB DFS Weather check

Before we take a look at the projected rosters and picks for the day, it’s important to have an idea of ​​how the weather is impacting the slate so we know whether we want to target certain plays or avoid those. which are too risky. Two tools to use are MLB weather report and MLB WeatherEdge which are both managed by RG’s weather expert Kevin Roth who you should follow on twitter for the latest weather news.

The hottest game of the day is OAK/LAA with times in the 70s while the coldest games are BL/BOS, CSA/MIN, ISP/CHC, and COLLAR/SF sees all times between 60 and 50.

BL/BOS will see a 5 to 10 mph wind blowing; MIA/NYM will see 12-14 mph blow; ISP/CHC will see a 14 mph wind blowing from left to right; COLLAR/SF will see a 10-18 mph wind towards the center.

Dome games include today NYY/TOR, STL/MIL, ARI/HOU, and TEXAS/SEA.

always watch MLB WeatherEdge to see how a wide range of statistics from games in similar weather conditions (since 2000) are more or less likely to occur based on the current weather in that specific stadium. Today we see home runs for COLLAR/SF are +12% while the total strokes for BL/BOS are +7.4%.

MLB Projected Alignments – Analysis and Top Stacks

Let’s take a look at MLB Starting lineups to see what the likely batting orders are today (main slate for this article) as well as the teams I’m looking to stack. Projected rosters will generally be pretty consistent day-to-day, with major changes occurring based on whether the opposing pitcher is right-handed or left-handed, as well as some guys more likely to have the day off if they play a game of day after a night game.

‘Cause the D-Backs are back off the mourners list as he was chosen to AAA and is on track to return from IL for SEA. is probably still with his eye issues and we’ll see if or are able to get back to the lineup for BL with various injuries. is also set to come back from IL for Philly and the Cubs will come back too (Suzuki won’t start). I’m sure there will be more to report once the lineups start to roll out, but for now that’s about it as far as injuries or big trades go.

The Braves are my favorite stack today against bottom right-hander Espino and the Astros are right behind them for a top stack option at home against right-hander Davies. In the next level, I like the Orioles and the Yankees and some others MPE batteries to consider include BOS, NYM, STL, AALand SEA.

MLB DraftKings and FanDuel Range Optimizer Picks

With a good idea of ​​projected lineups, weather and strong stacks to consider, let’s take a look at LineupHQ, where you can create lineups in seconds with our optimization tool as well as the “build” tool where you can create up to 300 queues at once based on your custom settings.

If we click on the “P/$” column header in the LineupHQ grid, all available players will be ranked from high to low based on their expected fantasy points per salary dollar on the specific point. DFS site you have selected – this is one of the best starting points for finding value on any slate.

On FanDuel, I start with ($3,300) at a great price on my favorite and most expensive stack ATL options my favorite bat is ($4,100) like its HR, SB and RBI upside hitting 5th gives it one of the highest caps on the slate. ($3,100) is a good cheap option while Riley, Swanson and Acuna all have a big advantage if you want to play in another bat from ATL.

BOS and BL continue to have high-value options as everyone besides Devers and Bogaerts is under $3,200 on both teams. ($3,000), Anthony Santander ($3,000), ($2,700) and ($2,900) are my best BL options while ($2700), ($2800) and ($3000) are where I’m looking BOS assess.

The Mariners also offer great value sticks today against bullpen play for TEXAS as ($2,100) should keep hitting until Rodriguez returns while ($3,000), ($2,700), ($2,700) and ($2,300) are all good cheap options to consider today.

More bats I like for today’s price include ($2,500), ($2,300), ($2,900), ($2,600), ($2,700), (2 $700), ($3,100), ($2,500) and ($2,500).

Watching DraftKings I start over with ($4,500) and ($4,700) like I really want ATL exposure and these are the most bullish bats for under $5000. On the other side of this game, I like the value of ($3,400), ($3,300), and ($2,200) all with the peloton advantage over Muller.

For BL and BOS my favorite options are ($3,700), Anthony Santander ($4,300), ($3,900), ($4,100) and ($4,100) while ($2,300) and ($2,100) are a few extreme salary savings to consider.

($3,000), ($2,500) and ($2,200) remain at excellent prices for SEA and a few other value bats that I like today are ($2,800), ($3,200), ($2,700), ($3,000), ($3,700) and ($3,500 ).

Keep checking LineupHQ as we start getting rosters confirmed and throwing changes based on batting order or guys taking the day off and we learn of their replacements. The best p/$ games are usually fairly consistent throughout the day to MLB but can always change if someone hits higher in order than originally expected or if a cheap value play gets a tee off for an injured/rested player.
