DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Stacks, Tuesday 5/1

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 Brewers made this list yesterday and were able to put up 6 runs, which I’m more than happy with. I think I like them more tonight. Spotlight Hitter Christian Yelich and Travis Shaw have the lefty/righty benefit, but that’s not all I’m looking at. I want to have a bunch of Lorenzo Cain, Ryan Braun and Domingo Santana. Orlando Arcia is a nice SS option at a bargain price. I’ll end up with every single guy on the Brewers in some form.

STL (vs. CWS)

This is as much of a play on the Cardinals as it is against James Shields. Matt Carpenter looks great at the top of the order. I would happily use the next five guys (Tommy Pham, Jose Martinez, Marcell Ozuna, Yadier Molina and/or Dexter Fowler) in any order. You can even make a case for Kolten Wong as a cheap 2B option in the stack, if you aren’t using Carpenter.

MIN (vs. TOR)

The Twins have cheap-ish pricing against Marco Estrada and the Blue Jays, which should make it easy to fit this stack in. Joe Mauer, Eddie Rosario, Max Kepler and Logan Morrison all have the lefty/righty match-up. I haven’t even mentioned Brian Dozier or Miguel Sano, who certainly will be in a ton of my lines.

Awesemo’s Notes
With team totals of 5.3 and 5.9, the Brewers and Cardinals make great stacks today as Josh pointed out. Minnesota is a stack I’ll definitely have and I think it could be a good ownership play in GPP formats. Another contrarian option I like are the Marlins on DraftKings. Their team total isn’t great but they are all priced super cheap, which is really useful on a slate with several ace pitchers.
