We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Tuesday’s main slate.

We have a loaded 14-game schedule in MLB on Tuesday, which means there are endless opportunities for your prospective lineup in DFS. The main slate features 8 games starting around 7:05 p.m. ET. There are a few teams putting their No. 1 starter on the mound, which might be less than ideal. But we also have a bunch of backend starters making their debuts this season across the majors.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Tuesday, April 6th.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET

Trevor Story ($5,400)
Charlie Blackmon ($5,200)
Ryan McMahon ($3,700)
Chris Owings ($3,300)
Garrett Hampson ($3,200)

On the eight-game main slate on DraftKings, we’ve got the D-Backs and Rockies at Coors Field. As is tradition, Coors usually has the high over/under total, which is 10.5 as of now on DraftKings Sportsbook. So this game will be a trendy stack. The Rockies go up against Luke Weaver, who was awful in 2020. Weaver surrendered 38 ER in 52.0 IP with a 1.55 WHIP. The Rockies offer a nice mix of studs and value options with Owings and Hampson likely to bat 1-2 and Story and Blackmon right behind them in the lineup.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET

Joey Gallo ($4,200)
Isiah Kiner-Falefa ($4,000)
Nate Lowe ($3,800)
David Dahl ($3,500)
Nick Solak ($3,100)

Arlington offers another launching-pad type of ballpark that will make for a few chalky stacking options. The Rangers are a bit more affordable than the Rockies and Blue Jays. I don’t mind stacking up Toronto on the other side, though Texas is going with a starter in Dane Dunning and then long reliever in Taylor Hearn. Tanner Roark is the starter for Toronto and was awful in Spring Training and had a very bleak 2020. Roark had a 6.80 ERA and allowed 14 HRs over 11 starts last season. If you stretched that out, he would have given up a lot of dingers. The Rangers have plenty of power with Gallo and Dahl in the middle of the lineup.
