3 MLB FanDuel Studs to Target on 8/29/18
Zack Godley, P, Arizona Diamondbacks
We're a little thin on top-end pitching options on tonight's main slate, but if you're paying up at the position, Zack Godley is the way to go.
His 4.04 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) is nothing to write home about, but it does stack up as the third-best among starters (with at least 50 innings pitched) on the main slate. His 24.0% strikeout rate is also good for third in that group, and his 11.9% swinging-strike rate ranks first.
He brings those numbers into a plus matchup tonight, taking on the San Francisco Giants
The Giants rank 24th in wRC+ against right-handed pitching on the season, while also striking out at the seventh-highest rate (23.7%). Their 3.64 implied total is the slate's second-lowest, and Godley's floor and ceiling are both strong in this spot.
