DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Hitters, Wednesday 4/11

Josh Engleman



The following are Josh’s favorite hitters of the main slate. Stay tuned throughout the day, as Awesemo will update with his thoughts throughout the afternoon.

Joey Gallo
FD: $3600
DK: $4400

With the huge implied total, this Rangers/Angels game should be incredibly popular and with good reason. Gallo is the bat I’m looking to target. Everyone knows Gallo can mash. He’s up against Jaime Barria, who’s making his major league debut tonight for the Angels. If he makes even the slightest mistake, Gallo can capitalize in a big way.

Mike Trout
FD: $5300
DK: $5700

Trout doesn’t have the benefit of a pitcher making his debut, but he does get a chance to go against lefty Matt Moore. The Angels have the 2nd highest implied total in the main slate, along with a sea of right handed hitting against Moore. The price tag is steep, but that’s what you pay for the best hitter in baseball.

Wilmer Flores
FD: $2200
DK: $3000

Flores made an appearance on this list yesterday, and if you played him, you were rewarded with a huge night. Flores went 2-5 with a double and homerun, 2 RBI and a run scored. I’m going back to the well again tonight. Flores is hitting in the heart of the Mets order, with the 4th highest implied run total of the night and a prime RHH/LHP matchup.

Awesemo’s Notes

All three of these guys are in my cash lineups on both sites tonight. The Angels @ Rangers game tonight will have most of the popular bats, but one I like from another game is Curtis Granderson, who has been underpriced seemingly all year.
