We have a full 15-game schedule in the majors Saturday, which means there are multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 5 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 Saturday, August 21st.

Red Sox vs. Rangers, 7:10 p.m. ET

Xander Bogaerts ($5,700)
J.D. Martinez ($5,300)
Jarren Duran ($3,700)

We spotlighted the Red Sox for our Friday night team stacks and we got some production from shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who scored 19 fantasy points and only rostered in 4% of lineups. We’re going to go back to Boston, who has another favorable pitching matchup in Rangers starter Jordan Lyles.

The veteran pitcher has struggled on the road this season with a 2-7 record, 5.85 ERA, and .279 opponents batting average. Along with Bogaerts, we are also to add in J.D. Martinez to this stack. The veteran outfielder is averaging 6.6 FPPG in his last five games and has a three-game hitting streak.

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

Trevor Story ($5,300)
Charlie Blackmon ($4,800)
Ryan McMahon ($4,500)

The Rockies were another team, who we highlighted for Friday night’s main slate and just like the Red Sox, we are going right back to them. Colorado will be facing Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zac Gallen, who has struggled this month with a 6.48 ERA through 3 starts.

Colorado veteran outfielder Charlie Blackmon is one of the perfect plays for this DFS team stack. Blackmon is hitting .583 in 12 career at-bats against Gallen and is averaging 12 FPPG.

Braves vs. Orioles, 7:05 p.m. ET

Ozzie Albies ($5,900)
Freddie Freeman ($5,500)
Jorge Soler ($4,700)

Our last team stack for tonight’s short main slate will be the Atlanta Braves. The Braves will be going up against Baltimore Orioles starter Matt Harvey, who has a skyrocketing 6.60 ERA and .308 opponents batting average in 11 home starts. Harvey will have to face one of the toughest offenses that has the capability of putting up a big inning.

For this stack, we are going to lead off with Ozzie Albies, who has great career numbers against Harvey. Albies is hitting .571 with a home run and 3 RBI in 7 career at-bats. Then, we’re going to add Freddie Freeman, who is a must start on a nightly basis.
