DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Stacks, Thursday 4/5

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

NYY (vs. BAL)

Aaron Judge made the Spotlight Hitters list, but there’s no reason to stop there. If you’re on FanDuel, try to take advantage of the 5.4 implied run total for the Yankees as much possible. Gary Sanchez, Brett Gardner and Tyler Wade have a great mix of upside and value. If you have enough money, Giancarlo Stanton pairs nicely with Judge, like lamb and tuna fish. Maybe you like spaghetti and meatball? Are you more comfortable with that analogy?


Even with a small slate, the Cubs looks like a great stack regardless of size. Their implied total only ranks behind the Yankees for the Main slate. We already know about Bryant, but Anthony Rizzo shares a similar outlook. Wilson Contreras looks nice on either site. Albert Almora has a salary on FD just $100 more than the minimum, and he is currently projected to bat lead-off. Plus, Ben Zobrist is ranked B/A on both sites. Follow the expected runs.

MIL (vs. CHC)

The Cubs aren’t the only nice bats in the night game. All three teams in the Spotlight stacks had a representative on the hitters list. The prices for the non-Braun Brewers are prime on DraftKings, with 3 As and 2 Bs in the Value column. Don’t fret on FanDuel, though. While it may not be as cost efficient, you can still legitimately make a 3 or 4 hitter stack.
