Several standout players are a part of the 22-team MLB DFS player pool Monday. Juan Soto and Trea Turner are both hitting .360 this season, and lead the Nationals against the Phillies at 7:05 p.m. ET. Fernando Tatis Jr. is tied for the MLB lead with 13 home runs as he and the Padres take on the Rockies at 9:30 p.m. ET. 

But are Soto, Turner and Tatis strong MLB DFS lineup options for you Monday? Nailing the correct mix of streaking players and strong matchups is pivotal to MLB DFS success. So before you decide who to pick from off the 11-team MLB DFS slates Monday, be sure to check out the optimal MLB DFS strategy, advice and stacks from SportsLine daily Fantasy guru Mike McClure first.

When it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

His model led him to some massive returns from his MLB DFS picks in 2019, producing daily Fantasy baseball lineups on SportsLine that returned as much as 30x. He also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice last season. 

On Sunday, McClure was on Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. in his lineup. The result: Tatis doubled twice and scored three runs against the Rockies. Anybody who built their lineup around him was well on the way to a profitable day. 

Now, with the 60-game 2020 MLB schedule continuing on Monday, Aug. 31, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks. Head to SportsLine now to see them. 

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Aug. 31

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Monday is Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado at $5,600 on DraftKings and $4,100 on FanDuel. Arenado has had a torrid week, with four doubles, four RBIs and four runs scored in six games.

Arenado and the Rockies finish a series with the Padres on Monday facing right-hander Garrett Richards (1-2, 5.17 ERA). Arenado feasts on righties, with all but one of his seven home runs and all but five of his 20 RBIs coming from right-handed pitchers.

Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy Monday includes rostering Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman at $5,300 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel. Freeman is hitting .307 this season with five home runs and 21 RBIs. 

Freeman and the Braves begin a series at Boston on Monday. The Red Sox are starting right-hander Colten Brewer (0-0, 4.57 ERA), which is a great matchup for Freeman — who has hit all five of his homers and driven in 18 runs against right-handers.
