We have a 16-game schedule in the majors Saturday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 10 games starting at 7:15 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 Saturday, July 17th.

Dodgers vs. Rockies, 8:10 p.m. ET

Mookie Betts ($5,900)
Justin Turner ($5,800)
A.J. Pollock ($4,100)

The first DFS team stack for Saturday night’s main slate is the Los Angeles Dodgers, who will be continuing their series against the Colorado Rockies. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 11.5, which is the highest on the board. The Dodgers defeated the Rox 10-4 on Friday night for their third-straight win.

Los Angeles will be going up against Kyle Freeland, who is 1-3 with an ERA of 5.48 in 9 starts this season. The Rockies’ starting pitcher has an ERA of 5.48 at home in 2021, which isn’t bad when you compare it to his ERA on the road (6.26). However, opponents are still hitting a solid .321 at the plate against Freeland.

Rays vs. Braves, 7:20 p.m. ET

Freddie Freeman ($5,800)
Austin Riley ($4,700)
Dansby Swanson ($4,700)

The Atlanta Braves are going to be our second stack play for tonight’s main slate. The Braves’ offense is averaging a ridiculous 6.8 runs per game in their last five contests. Now granted, they do not have Ronald Acuna Jr., who plays a big role in their offense. But they’ve shown in their last two games without him that they can still score runs.

Atlanta will be going up against Rays starting pitcher Josh Fleming, who has struggled on the road with a 5.16 ERA this season. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is a must play for this stack. The All-Star first baseman is averaging 17.6 FPPG in his last five games.

Padres vs. Nationals, 7:05 p.m. ET

Manny Machado ($5,500)
Wil Myers ($3,200)
Eric Hosmer ($3,200)

To wrap-up our DFS team stacks, we are going to play the San Diego Padres. In their series opener on Friday night, the Padres scored 24 runs against the Nationals. San Diego should be able to pick up where they left off against Nationals starter Patrick Corbin. The veteran pitcher is 5-3 with an ERA of 4.88 and .269 opponents batting average at home this season.
