FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Thursday 4/19/18

Zack Greinke stands out as the top arm on tonight's five-game slate. Who else should you give a look on FanDuel?

Last night, the chalktastic Arizona Diamondbacks weren't quite the DFS goldmine we hoped for against Chris Stratton, and chances are your cash game fate came down to whether or not you rostered Ryan Zimmerman, who was a nice value play at first base. After a slow start to the year, Zimmerman finally busted out, hitting two bombs on his way to 56.6 FanDuel points. Sometimes one guy can make all the difference -- particularly on an otherwise slow chalk night -- so hopefully you were on team Zimmerman.

With only five games on Thursday's main slate, we may find ourselves in a similar situation if one hitter goes off tonight. Pitching is fairly straightforward, so hopefully we choose wisely with our bats tonight. The Arizona Diamondbacks are once again in a good spot, with the Milwaukee Brewers and New York Mets also sitting pretty. Also, don't forget the Boston Red Sox, who are laying everyone and everything in their path to waste these days.

Our daily helper is available every day to analyze FanDuel's main slate and help give you a starting point when you're building lineups. Be sure to also incorporate our great tools into your research process. Whether you're looking for daily projections, the latest starting lineups and weather, or batting and pitching heat maps to find the best matchups -- we've got you covered! And don't forget to take a listen to The Solo Shot podcast with Jim Sannes, who breaks down the MLB daily fantasy slate each day.

On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
