MLB Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 9/26/17

Yonder Alonso is one of many great value bats to check out if you're paying up at pitcher tonight. Who else should you consider rostering?

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

Chris Sale ($11,800 on FanDuel): Entering his last start, any lingering doubts about Chris Sale's recent inconsistency quickly vanished, as he blanked the Baltimore Orioles for 8 innings, and struck out 13 to reach a remarkable 300 strikeouts on the season. Through 31 starts, he has a sparkling 2.55 SIERA, 36.3% strikeout rate, and 5.0% walk rate. There have been some minor bumps in the road for Sale, but simply put, he's one of the best pitchers in baseball. Start him in your cash games against the Toronto Blue Jays (3.26 implied total).
