Daily Fantasy DFS Picks For Draft Kings 4/13/16
P- Phil Hughes (vs. Chicago White Sox) $7,300. Today I went with two mid-tier pitchers rather than paying an elite price for an elite arm. Carrasco vs. Tampa Bay was the only arm that really appealed to me above Hughes and Lackey, but I rather take a price cut with Hughes and spend my money on my offense. In 173 career at bats against Hughes, the White Sox offense is hitting .272 against him with 4 home runs, 11 RBI’s, and 36 strikeouts. I think these numbers point in Hughes’ favor, so I’ll stick with him today.
P- John Lackey (vs. Cincinnati Reds) $8,300. Lackey has dominated the Reds lineup throughout his career. In 101 total at bats, the Reds lineup is only hitting .228 against Lackey with 2 home runs, and 18 strikeouts. Lackey is pitching at home for the first time, which should bring about lots of energy and excitement. On another note, his run support should be plenty to get the win over the Reds, which will help contribute to his point total.
