DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Stacks, Sunday 4/15

Josh Engleman



MLB picks: Our FanDuel MLB DFS Cheatsheets column highlights value plays in each price range for fantasy baseball lineups for July 21

The following Spotlight Stacks were selected by’s Director of Content Josh Engleman. Please check back later for notes/additional picks from Awesemo himself.


The Cardinals are easily my primary stack of the day, with the highest implied total on the board. Matt Carpenter made the list of Spotlight Hitters, but I want to have a bunch of him teammmates with him, too. Dexter Fowler, Tommy Pham and Jose Martinez all fit perfectly on either site. Yadier Molina cna also be added on DraftKings, where you have to play a traditional catcher.

CHC (vs. ATL)

A Cubs stack shines most on FanDuel, where Spotlight Hitter Ben Zobrist is only $2700. You can use Zobrist with Tommy La Stella, Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber and/or Victor Caratini. Bryant’s price is big, but it’s easily affordable with a high end pitcher if you’re using a Cubs stack.


The Yankees might have the highest top end of any team on the slate. They have a relatively high implied total to go along with three straight powerful right handed bats slotted to face the left handed Liriano. Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez are absolutely terrifying in the heart of this order, and I still haven’t even mentioned Spotlight Hitter Aaron Hicks. The Yankees ceiling higher than Judge & Stanton’s light-tower power.


Games on this slate are dropping like flies, but this Pirates stack looked before the other games were postponed. Josh Bell looks like the best combo of high end and value. Josh Harrison, Gregory Polanco, Starling Marte and/or Corey Dickerson make for a nice stack, as the Pirates now have one of the highest implied totals of the teams remaining. With this game in a dome, there’s no need to worry about the weather.
