MLB DFS: Power Index – 8/20/23 – DraftKings & FanDuel Main Slates

The Saturday afternoon MLB DFS main slate includes nine games on both DraftKings and FanDuel with an abundance of premium hitting options and a fairly concentrated pitching pool with a group of four or five high-end options at the top of the board. The slate includes the Braves against Jakob Junis in bulk relief, the Blue Jays facing returning Hunter Greene in Cincinnati’s band box, the Yankees drawing fair power marks against Nick Pivetta in the Bronx amidst a major downswing that may render the team under-owned, and the Cubs as our favorite go-to stack of the day in a great spot against Jordan Lyles. The slate seems to demand more of a spread of shares at the plate, between the value side of the equation and all of the teams showing quality power potential there are a lot of directions that this slate could swing.

Main Slate Power Index – 8/20/23

The power index represents a team’s opportunity for home run upside in the matchup against the scheduled starting pitcher. This is not a direct guideline for stacking, but it can be utilized to determine the most likely sources of power-based contact, hitters who are not homering are frequently hitting doubles and driving in runs, and providing valuable MLB DFS scoring. The “Full” column averages our home run opportunity score for each player in the lineup from 1-9, while the “Top 6” column averages only hitters 1-6, where teams typically place their most significant bats.
