FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

David Bote on Cubs' bench Thursday

Chicago Cubs infielder David Bote is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies.

What It Means:

Bote is getting a breather after starting the last three games. Matt Duffy is moving to second base and batting seventh. Patrick Wisdom is covering the hot corner while Ian Happ mans left field. Rafael Ortega is returning to the lineup to play center field and hit leadoff.

numberFire’s models project Ortega for 13.9 FanDuel points and he has a $3,000 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an implied total of 4.1 runs.
