DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (4/16) PREMIUM
We’ve got a 10-game featured slate this Monday, and it looks like the weather isn’t going to decimate our slate like it did yesterday. There are several bad pitchers on the mound today so instead of looking at one or two big stacks we’re going try and get exposure to a couple of these guys. If you go after a big stack TOR, CHC, STL, and NYM all have favorable matchups.
Aaron Nola (PHI): $10,500 @ ATL
The Braves may have the third most runs scored so far this season, but they shouldn’t be seen as a fearsome matchup. Only two regulars (Freddie Freeman and Ozzie Albies) have rated as above average hitters by wRC+ over their careers. Dansby Swanson, who hit .232 with a 66 wRC+ last season, has jumped all the way up to a .357 AVG and 164 wRC+ despite no major improvements in plate discipline, contact rate, or exit velocity. Atlanta has several guys like this playing way over their head, and I’m still willing to go after them.
