DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Hitters, Monday 4/9

These spotlight hitter picks come directly from the lineups of the #1 player in DFS, Awesemo. Follow him on Twitter for more.

Joey Votto
FD: $4000 | Fpts: A | Value: C
DK: $4200 | Fpts: A | Value: A

Even though Votto’s been off to a cold start, he’s still an elite hitter. Votto gets a matchup against the hittable Ben Lively and his projected 5.30 FIP. This could be just what he needs to turn his April around. The Reds have a reasonable implied total for an underdog, and Votto looks to be the best of the bunch, particularly on DraftKings where he has an A/A ranking.

Dexter Fowler
FD: $2800 | Fpts: B | Value: A
DK: $3100 | Fpts: B | Value: A

Fowler has been a popular Spotlight hitter in this young season, with a regular combination of nice matchups and a depressed price. It continues again tonight, as Fowler is expected to hit lead-off for the Cardinals against the Brewers and Jhoulys Chacin. Chacin has given up a ton of hard contact in 2018, and he has always struggled with left handed hitting. This makes Fowler an excellent value.

Scott Kingery
FD: $3000 | Fpts: B | Value: B
DK: $3300 | Fpts: B | Value: A

The Phillies sport the 2nd highest implied run total of the night, as they welcome LHP Cody Reed to the city of Philadelphia. Kingery grades out nicely as a shortstop on FanDuel, while having 2B/3B eligibility on DraftKings. Kingery is projected to hit 3rd tonight, which is a prime spot to capitalize on the best non-Coors offense on Monday.
