MLB Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 8/8/17

Corey Kluber has lit opposing batters aflame ever since returning from injury, and he's at home in a great matchup tonight. Which other players should we target 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. 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.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitchers

Corey Kluber ($11,700 on FanDuel): Corey Kluber has been in a class of his own ever since returning from the disabled list on June 1st. In 12 starts, Kluber owns a 40.7% strikeout rate with a 4.7% walk rate, helping him record a 2.04 SIERA. His lowest single-game strikeout rate in this stretch is 30.8%, which came in just his second start back. You're putting all of that goodness at home against a Colorado Rockies team that is 28th in wRC+ against righties. Whether you're playing cash games or tournaments, Kluber is your top choice of the night.
