FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Bryan De La Cruz sitting for Marlins on Thursday

Miami Marlins outfielder Bryan De La Cruz is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Kyle Gibson and the Philadelphia Phillies.

What It Means:

Jerar Encarnacion will move to left field in place of De La Cruz and hit eighth. Avisail Garcia will shift out to right field and hit cleanup while Garrett Cooper takes over at designated hitter. Lewin Diaz will replace De La Cruz in the lineup to play first base and bat ninth.

Encarnacion has a $2,300 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 7.6 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Marlins’ implied total (3.34) is No. 8 out of 12 teams today.
