FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Sunday 6/30/19
The beauty of daily fantasy baseball is that the top targets are different each and every day. Whether it's the right-handed catcher who destroys left-handed pitching or the mid-range hurler facing a depleted lineup, you're not going to find yourself using the same assets time after time.
While this breaks up the monotony, it can make it hard to decide which players are primed to succeed on a given day. We can help bridge that gap.
In addition to our custom optimal lineups, you can check out our batting and pitching heat maps, which show the pieces in the best spot to succeed on that slate. Put on the finishing touches with our games and lineups page to see who's hitting where and what the weather looks like, and you'll have yourself a snazzy-looking team to put up some big point totals.
If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. We'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Max Scherzer ($12,500 on FanDuel): We've got two stud aces atop our projections today, with Scherzer (46.9 FanDuel points) the cream of the crop. He's got a dream matchup against the Detroit Tigers, who sit dead last in wOBA against righties (.282) with the second-worst strikeout rate (26.2%) in the split. Scherzer is again posting sparkling numbers -- a 2.96 SIERA, 33.8% strikeout rate, 4.8% walk rate and 16.4% swinging-strike rate, with the latter being a career-high clip. The Washington Nationals are slate-best -320 favorites. Gerrit Cole, who is a good bit cheaper, has a lot of appeal today, too, but Scherzer could go nuts in what is pretty much a perfect matchup.
