FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 7/2/19
We get our usual large Tuesday slate with all 30 teams in action, giving us a bevy of options both on the mound and at the plate. Coors Field and Globe Life Park set the stage for some offensive fireworks, while elsewhere we see familiar teams like the Rays and Dodgers in favorable matchups, as well.
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
Charlie Morton ($10,800 on FanDuel): Trevor Bauer ($11,600) is the most-expensive hurler on the slate by a decent margin, and he certainly has the upside you want in tournaments, posting 60-plus FanDuel points twice in the last three starts. One of those games came against the Royals in his last appearance, though he now faces them for the second time in a row, and they're actually more of a neutral matchup, with an active roster that owns a 98 wRC+ and 21.2% strikeout rate versus righties. On the other hand, fellow right-hander Charlie Morton draws a far better spot against the lowly Orioles -- who have a 90 wRC+ and 23.8% strikeout rate in the split -- and we know Morton has the goods to take advantage with a 29.9% strikeout rate. Pitcher-friendly Tropicana Field and a 51.9% ground-ball rate should help him keep the Orioles off the board, and the Rays should give him plenty of run support against any easy target in Asher Wojciechowski.
