The following Spotlight Stacks & Hitters were selected by Awesemo.com’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.
Royals (#2 DraftKings / #2 FanDuel)
- Alex Gordon
- Mike Moustakas
- Salvador Perez
- Whit Merrifield [DK]
- Abraham Almonte [FD]
There’s something oddly satisfying about stacking against Bartolo Colon. The Royals are popping up more than any other team across both sites, but they get there in different ways. Whit Merrifield’s FanDuel price is only $100 cheaper than his DraftKings price, which is making his ownership on FD a bit muted. The opposite is true for Abraham Almonte. Gordon, Moose Tacos and Perez are a solid core that can be added to with anyone in the lineup.
Mets (#5 DraftKings / #1 FanDuel)
- Amed Rosario
- Asdrubal Cabrera
- Todd Frazier
- Wilmer Flores
Cheap Mets bats in Coors? Sign me up! The prices on FanDuel are crazy low for the current scenario. It’s even more striking to see their projected 1-4 covers the entire infield. That allows you load up on big outfield bats or guys like Cole/Bauer. The only guy I have little interest in is Brandon Nimmo. He has the platoon disadvantage and a price that is way too high.
Indians (#1 DraftKings / #6 FanDuel)
- Francisco Lindor
- Michael Brantley
- Yonder Alonso
- Jason Kipnis
I love the Indians tonight, whether that’s batters or Trevor Bauer. Even though he’s $5100 on DK, Francisco Lindor is one of my favorite plays of the day. Yonder Alonso is still a bargain if you‘re not looking to pay up for Edwin Encarnacion. I have an unhealthy obsession with Lonnie Chisenhall in general, but his price point makes me feel better about it. Tyler Naquin is a flyer option on FanDuel at minimum salary.
