DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Stacks, Thursday 4/12

Josh Engleman



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

WAS (vs. COL)

If you read the Spotight Hitter’s article first, then you’ll know the Nats are one of the best stacks of the night. I would honestly be comfortable with any one of the bats for the Nats, but my main priority would be to start at the top. Brian Goodwin and Trea Turner are in excellent positions at the top of the order. Bryce Harper needs no explanation. You can safely include Anthony Rendon and Ryan Zimmerman to go for a full 1-5 stack.

MIN (vs. CWS)

This is a perfect storm stack for me. The Twins have three lefty bats at the top of the order, which stacks nicely against RHP Lucas Giolito. The two right handed bats in the top of the order, leadoff hitter Brian Dozier and Miguel Sano, are both outstanding hitters in their own right, regardless of matchup. Giolito has the prospect pedigree, but this lineup and the implied run total are impossible to ignore.

Awesemo’s Notes
Josh picked two of my top stacks of the night. I agree with Josh about Giolito being good to stack against and I think you can hedge on DraftKings by playing Giolito, who has good strikeout potential as a SP2. On FanDuel, it could be interesting to stack 4 Minnesota bats with Jose Berrios, which is allowed this year. I also have the Giants grading as a good contrarian stack on FanDuel (they’re not on the DraftKings slate).
