We have a 15-game schedule 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 14 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, August 6th.

Mariners vs. Yankees, 7:05 p.m. ET

Joey Gallo ($5,000)
Gleyber Torres ($4,300)
Giancarlo Stanton ($4,200)

The Yankees have been one of the hottest teams in the majors, winning 6 out of their last 7 games since the July 30th trade deadline. New York’s offense has been carrying them with 5.6 runs per game in that span of time.

The Yankees’ offense could be due another high-scoring game with Seattle starter Marco Gonzales. Gonzales has struggled mightily on the road this season with an ERA of 5.34 and opponents batting average of .280. Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo is a great pick for the DFS team stack. The power-hitting outfielder has great career number against Gonzales, hitting .333 with 2 HRs and 7 RBI in 18 at-bats.

Indians vs. Tigers, 7:10 p.m. ET

Jose Ramirez ($6,400)
Franmil Reyes ($5,200)
Amed Rosario ($4,200)

The Indians are going to be our second team stack for tonight’s main slate, despite them losing 4 out of their last 5 games. Cleveland will be opening up a three-game set against the Tigers.

The Indians will be looking to get back on track against Detroit starter Matt Manning, who has a 0-3 record and 8.20 ERA on the road this season. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 9.5. This stack will likely be one more the expensive stacks on the slate as you have two sluggers in Ramirez and Reyes. In his last five games, Ramirez is averaging 11 FPPG with 2 HRs. As for Reyes, he’s producing 6.8 FPPG in his last five games, which is lower than his season average of 9.3 FPPG.

Rangers vs. Athletics, 9:40 p.m. ET

Matt Olson ($5,300)
Starling Marte ($5,000)
Jed Lowrie ($3,700)

The Athletics are a heavy favorite on the moneyline (-310) tonight against the Rangers and should be a must-play in DFS. Oakland will be going up against Texas starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz, who has been downright horrific this season. The 29-year-old starter is 2-10 with an ERA of 6.00 and has allowed 31 HRs through 21 starts.

Foltynewicz’s ERA has risen to 8.39 on road and allowed opposing teams to hit .312 at the plate. Two A’s that are good plays for this stack are Starling Marte and Jed Lowrie, who are both hitting .273 and .375 respectively against the Rangers’ starter in their career.
