DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Pitchers, Saturday 6/9

Josh Engleman



The following Spotlight Pitchers were selected by’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.

Domingo German [6.0 IP, 2.3 ER, 5.9 K, 2.6 BB]

  • Best value on both sites

German is the guy I’ll be loading up on, regardless of site, as his price is just too low to pass up. FanDuel, in particular, looks like a great spot if you’re looking for an alternative to Charlie Morton. While the Mets have been solid against righties this season, Vegas isn’t much of a believer. The Mets have the second lowest implied total of the slate. I’m not expecting German to put the Mets on lockdown, but at his price, I think he has the highest chance to be the top value option of the 4-game slate.

Charlie Morton [6.3 IP, 2.7 ER, 8.0 K, 2.5 BB]

  • The highest ceiling at the highest price

On a normal slate, I probably wouldn’t have a ton of Morton. The spot is good, but the price tag gives me some pause. Ultimately, you can still get to some powerful stacks (Rockies/Astros) if you pay up for Morton. That makes him a no-brainer. Morton’s projection of 8 strikeouts is the clear leader for today, with Steven Matz being second at 6.3 The Rangers have not been great against right handed pitching this year, with a 26% strikeout rate, .376 SLG and 81 wRC+. That’s bad. No one can beat Morton’s upside, so I‘m in for a bunch of Chuck.
