MLB DFS: Power Index – DraftKings & FanDuel Main Slates – 9/29/23

The final Friday slate of the MLB season features a dozen games on both sites, originally 13 but the Phillies vs. Mets game was postponed due to neverending rain in the New York area. The slate features a strong lean toward hitting, with several teams landing at or around the magic number for home run potential and strong projections up and down the board, the pitching options today are less than ideal. The slate demands a strong spread both on the mound and at the plate, with numerous options from the Braves, Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, Cubs, and Rangers in their typical places and upstart squads like the Athletics sneaking into the top portion of the home run model. The pitching board has good options in several spots but falls short of true ace-caliber talent almost universally across the slate.

Main Slate Power Index – 9/29/23

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.
