Healy’s MLB Daily Fantasy Plays – 9/27/23

Healy's MLB DFS Breakdown

Healy’s MLB Daily Fantasy Intro:

Excited to bring my MLB GPP cheatsheet back to the team at 4DEEP, where we will look to build upon all of our past success. Today, I’ll be covering the main slate beginning at 7:07pm. If you’re not familiar with this piece, it will be broken down into the following three sections. A cheat sheet with three tiers of players (each pricing tier is based on DraftKings positions/pricing and includes my preferred cash plays from each position), my favorite stacks to target and which players in said stacks I prefer, and lastly, my “Today’s Edge” section, which covers my edge play/fade of the slate, top HR picks, and the players I expect to be the top performers.


I’m here to give you the players to consider for your 9/27/23 MLB GPPs. This isn’t a list of every player I will have, but rather the top guys I am including in my stacks/core, whether it be as a matchup-based play, ownership-based play, or even a leverage play, they will all be included in this core list.

$ Tier SP C 1B 2B 3B SS OF
Top Tier Framber Valdez Will Smith Fred Freeman Ozzie Albies Max Muncy Corey Seager Garcia/Yordong
Mid Tier Jose Berrios Luis Campusano Nol Schanuel Ha-Seong Kim Man Machado X. Bogaerts Kepler/Outman
Value Tier Matt Waldron Ryan Jeffers Garrett Cooper Edouard Julien Matt Batten Kyle Farmer Wallner/Heyward

Pitching Pool:

  • Gerrit Cole – NYY @ TOR – DK: $12k / FD: $11.1k
  • Framber Valdez – HOU @ SEA – DK: $10.2k / FD: $10.6k
  • Jose Berrios – TOR vs. NYY – DK: $8.6k / FD: $9.9k
  • Matt Waldron – SD @ SF – DK: $7k / FD: $6.5k


  1. Dodgers: Once again going right back to a chalky Doyers offense in Coors Field, who project to be extremely under owned IMO. With Noah Davis’ ability to generate ground balls to RHH, I’ll primarily focus on the LHH and the Doyers have SEVERAL and the ones in the second half of the lineup are very cheap to still allow us decent SP. Muncy is my favorite, followed by Outman and Heyward. I’ll note, Mookie and Smith have natural Flyball swings, which should lead to more line drives, so they remain in play. 
  2. Padres: This seems like a spot our beloved ABER will be all over. Manaea, a middling lefty, vs. the Padres, who have been MLB’s top offense in the split recently. They should roll out Soto plus eight RHH, making this a spot to mix and match 1-9. Campusano, Kim, and Batten are my favorite values after Bogaerts and Manny.
  3. Twins: They nuked last night and now draw a far more favorable matchup vs. a mediocre triple A call up, followed by a bad bullpen. When this team isn’t striking out, they are a dangerous offense. All but Polanco and Taylor have a strong ISO vs. Estes’ pitch mix, putting all nine bats firmly in play. Kepler and Wallner are my preferred plays.
  4. Rangers: They let us down last night, but we will have a short memory and go right back to the Rangers, who still have something to play for as they look to lock down the AL West. Canning has been reverse splits, so aside from Seager (elite), I’ll focus on building my stacks with 2-3 RHH in each (lineup dependent). Garcia is once again my favorite despite a goose egg last night.
