MLB Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 7/29/17

With a tasty matchup against the Chicago White Sox, Corey Kluber is the main slate's premier arm. Which other players should we target tonight in MLB DFS?

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.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. We'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate, which begins at 7:05 p.m. EST and features the day's final 10 games.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitchers

Corey Kluber ($11,900 on FanDuel): Kluber is the slate's top pitcher no matter how you look at things. The Chicago White Sox boast a slate-low 3.05 implied total, 0.75 runs fewer than any other team, and our models project Kluber to score 37.6 FanDuel points, 4.2 points clear of the field. Over the last 14 days, the White Sox own a meager .289 wOBA, and Kluber has put up a single-game swinging-strike rate of at least 17.8% in five consecutive starts.
