Healy’s MLB Daily Fantasy Plays – 9/30/23

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 7:10pm. 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 9/30/23 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 Luis Castillo W. Contreras Spenc Steer Jon India M. Machado Elly Cruz Bellinger/Tucker
Mid Tier Joe Boyle Elias Diaz Kris Bryant G. Torres C. Morel Dan Swanson Jones/Happ
Value Tier Kutter Crawford Ty Stephenson CES B. Rodgers Ryan McMahon Noelvi Marte Senzel/Sheets

Pitching Pool:

  • Luis Castillo – SEA vs. TEX – DK: $10.3k / FD: $10.6k
  • Joe Boyle – OAK @ LAA – DK: $7.8k / FD: $7.4k
  • Kutter Crawford – BOS @ BAL – DK: $6.8k / FD: $7.2k


  1. Rockies: Final opportunity for this group to take the field this season vs. an unmotivated Twins team who certainly won’t push their starters or top BP arms as they await the post season. This sets up an elite spot for us to go ALL IN on the ROX. All affordable, my preferred bats start with Jones, Bryant, and McMahon.
  2. Reds: We missed them last night, but they get another attackable spot vs. young, inconsistent Drew Rom. He brings a generous 11% walk rate into tonight’s game. Nick Senzel is a clear top option, but with endless power in this lineup, 1-9 all in play. Preferred stack: 9, 1, 2, 3, 4.
  3. Cubs: Technically still alive, they should be putting their top effort forward tonight vs. Eric Lauer. A few key bats to focus on who thrive vs. his pitch mix. Bellinger, Morel, Happ, and Suzuki are the top plays while Swanson, Gomes,and Wisdom are secondary.

Today’s Edge:

  • Home Run Predictions:
    • Spencer Steer
    • Nolan Jones
  • Highest Scoring Hitter: Ryan McMahon
  • Highest Scoring Pitcher: Luis Castillo
  • Top Value Play: Nick Senzel
  • Player to Fade: Kyle Farmer
  • Slate Edge: Nick Senzel
