MLB Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 6/14/17

Corey Kluber has dealt in two starts since coming off the disabled list, and he's back at home tonight. Which other players should we target in daily fantasy baseball?

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. We've also got our Solo Shot Podcast, which breaks down the MLB daily fantasy slate each day. Here's today's episode.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. With the split slates, we'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate beginning at 7 pm Eastern.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitchers

Corey Kluber ($10,200 on FanDuel): There's a cavernous hole between Corey Kluber and the rest of the pack tonight, and it means we should be willing to use him in both cash games and tournaments despite what figures to be monster ownership. Kluber has made two starts since returning from the disabled list, and he has been stout in both with a 21.1% swinging-strike rate. The opposing Los Angeles Dodgers have a solid offense, but over the past three weeks, their strikeout rate against righties is up to 26.7%. They gain a designated hitter today and will play in a hitter-friendly park, but Kluber's talent is too far above that of the rest of the slate for us to pass.
