Fantasy Baseball Stacks: Top Offenses to Target for July 11

WATCH: Why Machado was one of Tuesday’s top fantasy stars


Here are my top fantasy baseball stacks for Wednesday evening’s 11-game MLB main slate:
 

1. COLORADO ROCKIES

 
The runs just keep flowing on these main slates lately, but it was surprising to see just eight total runs at Coors Field on Tuesday. I think things turn around on this slate, particularly for the home team, who will square off against Arizona RHP Shelby Miller ($4,500) and his 0-3 record and 9.00 ERA through his first 14 innings. That’s not ideal for a pitcher going up against a lineup that’s hit him well in the past — 39-for-131 (.298) with 18 extra-base hits. This is an ideal spot for the Rockies to feast on a struggling pitcher, sporting a 6.1 run projection.

Players to Consider

Nolan Arenado ($5,600)
Charlie Blackmon ($5,400)
Trevor Story ($5,300)
DJ LeMahieu ($4,300)
Carlos Gonzalez ($4,300)
Tony Wolters ($3,200)
 


2. BOSTON RED SOX

 
The Red Sox came through with eight runs Tuesday and are projected for another 5.8 against Texas RHP Bartolo Colon ($4,100). Winners of eight in a row, Boston’s offense is shredding opposing pitching and has shown the ability to go off for 15+ runs along the way. This offense jacked four homers against Colon in seven innings earlier this season, so the expectation for production is obvious. J.D. Martinez, Mitch Moreland and Rafael Devers all have homered twice against the ageless wonder (Devers in just three at-bats).
 

Players to Consider

 
Mookie Betts ($6,000)
J.D. Martinez ($5,600)
Andrew Benintendi ($5,300)
Xander Bogaerts ($5,000)
Mitch Moreland ($4,100)
Rafael Devers ($4,000)


3. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

 
A 5.5 run projection for the Diamondbacks against Colorado’s German Marquez ($5,100) feels too light for me at Coors. This Arizona lineup has a .331 batting average against the RHP in 118 at-bats, including 18 extra-base hits. Paul Goldschmidt very well could be the most intriguing individual bat on the slate despite his price tag, going 8-for-15 against Marquez with two doubles and three bombs.
 

Players to Consider

 
Paul Goldschmidt ($5,900)
A.J. Pollock ($5,100)
Jake Lamb ($4,700)
John Jay ($4,200)
Nick Ahmed ($4,000)
Daniel Descalso ($3,900)
 

4. CLEVELAND INDIANS

 
I don’t have anything bad to tell you about Cincinnati’s Tyler Mahle ($6,800). The RHP has been solid nearly every outing of the season for the Reds. However, the Indians are projected for 5.3 runs for a reason. These talented bats will be looking for revenge after giving up seven runs in the ninth inning Tuesday to blow the game. By Cleveland standards, these bats can be had on the cheap side on this slate.
 

Players to Consider

 
Francisco Lindor ($5,700)
Jose Ramirez ($5,700)
Michael Brantley ($4,500)
Edwin Encarnacion ($4,500)
Yonder Alonso ($3,800)
Jason Kipnis ($3,700)
 


 

5. NEW YORK YANKEES

 
Much like the Indians, the Yankees are projected for 5.3 runs coming off a disappointing comeback at the hands of the Orioles that ended with a walkoff. The opposing pitcher will be Dylan Bundy ($6,100), who I also have nothing mean to say about — I guess I’m in a good mood today. So in that regard, I’ll compliment the Yankees, who’ve scored seven or more runs four times already against Baltimore this season. Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge have all homered off Bundy in limited plate appearances, so there’s some history of success in this matchup.
 

Players to Consider

 
Aaron Judge ($5,500)
Giancarlo Stanton ($5,000)
Aaron Hicks ($5,000)
Didi Gregorius ($4,700)
Brett Gardner ($4,400)
Greg Bird ($4,000)
