MLB Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 10/3/17

On a two-game Wild Card slate, Jon Gray has as much upside as anyone and comes at a nice discount. 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.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today.

Pitchers to Target

Luis Severino ($10,200 on FanDuel): Just because the regular season is over doesn't mean we don't have some daily fantasy baseball left to play! We've got a two-game Wild Card slate on tap, and of our four pitching options, Luis Severino comes in with the best numbers on the year. Across 31 starts, Severino has posted an excellent 3.25 SIERA with a 29.4% strikeout rate and 6.5% walk rate. If that wasn't good enough, he's also supported that with solid batted-ball marks, inducing ground-balls at a 50.6% rate and allowing just a 28.5% hard-hit rate. He's a big favorite against Ervin Santana and the Minnesota Twins (3.00 implied total), making him your safest bet on the mound.
