DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Hitters & Stacks, Tuesday 8/14

The following Spotlight Stacks & Hitters were selected by Awesemo.com’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.

Blue Jays (#1 DraftKings / #2 FanDuel)

  • Devon Travis
  • Curtis Granderson
  • Justin Smoak
  • Randal Grichuk
  • Danny Jensen [DK]

Let’s try this again. I went pretty hard against Heath Fillmyer in his last start, and today will be no different. That’s what happens when you project as a replacement level starter and so does your bullpen. The Blue Jays are also incredibly cost efficient, which is the icing on my cake. Russell Martin and his 3B eligibility are solid on FanDuel. I don’t have much Teoscar or Kendrys, but I have no issues slotting them into a stack. The most interesting play, possibly of the day, would be Danny Jansen on DraftKings. Jansen has catcher eligibility and has a $2000 price tag. If he‘s in the lineup, he‘ll be owned heavily.

Diamondbacks (#2 DraftKings / #1 FanDuel)

  • Paul Goldschmidt
  • A.J. Pollock
  • Steven Souza
  • Ketel Marte

With the highest implied total of the slate and a date with Yovani Gallardo, the Diamondbacks are in a tie for the top spot in my stack rankings. David Peralta is more approachable on FanDuel due to the $5700 price point on DraftKings. I get a small amount of Eduardo Escobar, but he‘s simply overprice right now. On FanDuel, Daniel Descalso is in the bargain role once again. I think staying away from Alex Avila is a safe bet if he ends up hitting 9th as projected. When push comes to shove, you want to have parts of this game because it‘s the best hitting environment of the slate.

Indians (#5 DraftKings / #3 FanDuel)

  • Jose Ramirez
  • Francisco Lindor
  • Yonder Alonso
  • Michael Brantley

Well, this worked out really well yesterday. Once again, I’ll be paying up for these Indians bats. It’s too good of a matchup to be light. Roberto Perez is a favorite catcher option at $2800. I‘m an irrational Jason Kipnis fan. If he‘s facing a righty, I‘m interested in him as a 2B option. Melky Cabrera continues to be under-priced, making him a good alternative for keeping the Indians stack cheap. I just like having high-end bats as much as possible. They‘re easy to get to with some of the pitching options on the slate, so I‘ll hopefully be well over the field.
