FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Thursday 6/27/19
As one might expect, Thursday's four-game main slate leaves the pitching cupboard rather bare, though with the light-hitting Miami Marlins on the slate, you can bet there's one notable exception. Bats are more plentiful by default with Coors Field making its triumphant return, as the Los Angeles Dodgers are the latest road team to enjoy the park factor boost. The Los Angeles Angels also draw a plus matchup against Tanner Anderson.
Our daily helper is available every day to analyze FanDuel's main slate and help give you a starting point when you're building lineups. Be sure to also incorporate our great tools into your research process. Whether you're looking for daily projections, the latest starting lineups and weather, or batting and pitching heat maps to find the best matchups -- we've got you covered! And don't forget to take a listen to The Solo Shot podcast with Jim Sannes, who breaks down the MLB daily fantasy slate each day.
On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Stephen Strasburg ($10,400 on FanDuel): Max Scherzer (61 FanDuel points) and Patrick Corbin (55 FanDuel points) have feasted on the Marlins this week, and now it's Stephen Strasburg's turn to get in on the fun. Although Strasburg has had some missteps in the month of June, overall he has a strong 3.46 SIERA, 29.1% strikeout rate, and 6.5% walk rate in 2019, and as we've seen with these Marlins, you hardly need numbers as good as those to put up a dominant performance. Miami's active roster has actually managed to crawl out of the basement in wRC+ against right-handers, but they're still tied for the fifth-worst mark (86) and strike out at a 23.0% clip. As always, Marlins Park further squashes their offensive potential, and the home team has a slate-low 3.20 implied total, the only total below four runs.
