While Cincinatti Reds right fielder Nick Castellanos is technically at the top of the Thursday hitting table, he’s been swinging a pretty mediocre bat during his last 7 games, hitting .231. Problem is Trey Mancini is even worse, hitting .179 during his last 7. Same goes for Austin Meadows, hitting .207. Eric Hosmer isn’t playing today. Reds’ Jesse Winker is the best among middling options, hitting .258. As of this posting, the Atlanta Braves starter is TBD so we can’t break things down by matchup. If you’re needing a Daily Fantasy add, we’re going with Winker. He’d cost you a modest 7.40 DKFP. Draft Kings has Wander Franco at the top of their list based on the last 10.6 games.
