We have 14 games on deck in the majors on Friday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 12 games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET.

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 Friday, May 28th.

Royals vs. Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET

Whit Merrifield ($4800)
Salvador Perez ($4700)
Andrew Benintendi ($3400)

Thursday’s main slate DFS stacks did not get a single win, but we did score a good amount of points, which would’ve been good on any other day. The White Sox stack, which had the likes of Jose Abreu, Nick Madrigal, and Yoan Moncada produced 25 points. Meanwhile, the Texas Rangers stack of Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Adolis Garcia, and Nick Solak scored 5 points.

That being said, we have a ton of games on Friday’s schedule to choose from and hopefully bounce back in a huge way. Our first stack we are going to pick is the Kansas City Royals, who play the Minnesota Twins at 8:10 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at 9, which is currently the second-highest on the board.

The Royals should be able to do well and score points against Twins starting pitcher Randy Dobnak. Dobnak is 1-3 with a 5.75 and will be making his second start since being recalled from the minors. Left-handed hitters are slugging .289/.357/.605 with 4 HRs and 7 RBI this season against the 26-year-old.

Andrew Benintendi is a great value play in this stack as he is hitting .285 with 4 HRs, 16 RBI, and averaging 7.0 fantasy points per game. The former Red Sox OF has recorded a hit in five out of Kansas City’s last six games and has hit two home runs against Dobnak in his career.

Cardinals vs. Diamondbacks, 9:40 p.m. ET

Carson Kelly ($4400)
Ketel Marte ($4400)
Pavin Smith ($3300)

If you remember on Thursday, we formulated a team stack using the Cardinals that had the likes of Nolan Arenado, Tommy Edman, and Paul Goldschmidt. Arenado and Goldschmidt both had good nights at the plate, scoring 10 and 13 fantasy points, respectively.

For Friday night’s main slate, we are going to go with the Diamondbacks, who have lost 11 straight games and averaging 3.4 runs in their last five games. The DBacks will be facing off against Cardinals starter Johan Ovieda. The 23-year-old is 0-2 with an ERA of 5.74 and has a 13.50 ERA in his lone road appearance against the San Diego Padres. Rookie Pavin Smith is a good value play at $3300 for this stack. He’s recorded a hit in seven straight games and is averaging 9.1 fantasy points over that span of time. Infielder Josh Rojas, who I did not list in this stack, is another great value play if you want to go with four players.

Rangers vs. Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET

Isiah Kiner-Falefa ($4000)
Adolis Garcia ($3500)
Willie Calhoun ($3500)

The Rangers failed us on Thursday night against Chris Flexen, but they should be able to get going on offense against Mariners starter Justus Sheffield. Sheffield is 3-4 with a 5.11 ERA in eight starts this season. Despite a high overall ERA, the 25-year-old pitcher has pitched well at home with a 3.57 ERA. Left-handed batters are hitting .326 and right-handed batters are slugging .278 with 4 HRs. Since a Rangers stack gives you most cap flexibility, this might be the best play of the night.
