On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Justin Verlander ($12,000 on FanDuel): Justin Verlander hits the $12,000 mark for the second straight start, and while the exorbitant price tag really puts a squeeze on your hitting funds, few hurlers have performed as consistently as Verlander this season. He's notched a quality start in 8 of 10 outings and has also tallied at least seven strikeouts eight times, all of which has helped him exceed 50 FanDuel points on six occasions. Although his 3.26 SIERA, 31.1% strikeout rate, and 6.5% walk rate are all slight steps back from 2018, they're still elite numbers that almost none of the other options on the slate can match. The opponent also checks out -- among active rosters, the White Sox have the third-highest strikeout rate versus righties (24.9%) and have a meager 3.10 implied total.
