Monday’s seven-game main MLB slate won’t include the first two games of the week. A pair of games at 7:10 p.m. ET will get things started before two games at 7:40, a game at 8:00, and a final matchup between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland A’s at 9:00. A couple of games stand out as ideal fantasy action.
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 Monday, May 24th. Prices courtesy of DraftKings.
Rockies vs. Mets, 7:10 p.m. ET
Francisco Lindor ($4,900)
Dominic Smith ($3,900)
Jonathan Villar ($3,400)
The Mets are struggling in a big way on offense this year and have a host of key players on the IL, but only three teams have given up more runs than Colorado. There’s great value on the table if the Mets have an above-average performance. Lindor is in a hitting slump but has tallied five hits in his last five games while scoring two runs and notching two RBIs. Smith and Villar have each notched seven hits in seven of their last 10 games while combining for 11 runs and six RBIs. There are few stacks capable of returning more value than this one you’re pressed for salary.
Cardinals vs. White Sox, 8:10 p.m. ET
Tim Anderson ($5,900)
Jose Abreu ($5,100)
Yermin Mercedes ($4,900)
Yoan Moncada ($4,700)
The White Sox unexpectedly got swept by the New York Yankees in a three-game series that ended on Sunday but can bounce back against a Cardinals. Kwang Hyun Kim has given up 17 hits in 13 2⁄3 innings, and Chicago has one of the most lethal lineups in MLB when hot. Anderson is as lethal as any leadoff man and is batting just under .300 with 44 hits and five home runs. He’s also among the league leaders in stolen bases with seven. The middle of the order can do damage as well. Abreu ranks eighth in RBIs with 35, Mercedes is a Rookie of the Year contender batting .347, and has 25 RBIs alongside Moncada.
