Yankees (#2 DraftKings / #1 FanDuel)

  • Brett Gardner
  • Didi Gregorius
  • Giancarlo Stanton
  • Greg Bird

The Yankees currently have an implied total 2.5 runs higher than the Orioles. That’s massive. I’m all over this lineup from top to bottom. You can easily slot Aaron Hicks into the Stanton spot, if need be. Austin Romine would work well as a catcher in a stack. I’m even fine with Neil Walker, and he’s a bit past his expiration date, in my opinion. Yefry Ramirez is going to have a tough time navigating this Yankees lineup, so I want to make sure I have parts of all of it.

Braves (#3 DraftKings / #2 FanDuel)

  • Freddie Freeman
  • Ozzie Albies
  • Ronald Acuna
  • Ender Inciarte

Two days in a row! I was honestly a bit surprised that the Braves popped up today, as I’m generally a Dan Straily fan, and the weather wasn’t super hitter friendly. The implied total is carrying a ton of weight. I like the lefties a lot. Nick Markakis is someone that doesn’t pop for me all that often, but today is a different day. If Kurt Suzuki is slotted into the 5-hole, that’s a great catcher option on DraftKings at $3500. Johan Camargo’s dual eligibility is a major asset with dual eligibility and a small price tag. Go Braves!

Red Sox (#1 DraftKings / #4 FanDuel)

  • Mitch Moreland
  • Xander Bogaerts
  • Eduardo Nunez
  • Andrew Benintendi

The Red Sox have a similar vibe to the Braves today. I’m a fan of Jake Arrieta and I didn’t expect Boston to come up as much in my initial crunch. Turns out, the implied total is pushing them to the top. Ian Kinsler looks to be starting at 2B tonight, so I’d like to have some of him if this total stays as high as it is. I have a weird interest in catchers under $3000 on DraftKings, so Sandy Leon will be in more of my lines than most would expect. It should be obvious that Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez are good, but expensive, options as part of a stack. If you have the money, absolutely move up to them. If not, you can still be relatively cheap with these guys.
