FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Monday 4/30/18

The Red Sox have one of Monday's top matchups as they face off with Jason Hammel, which puts J.D. Martinez in an enviable spot. Who else should you consider on FanDuel's main slate?

Despite having 10 games on the docket, tonight's main slate doesn't really have a runaway favorite in the pitching department. The priciest arms are in tough matchups, so it may be the rare day where paying down may be the best move. On the hitting side, the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers are among the top offenses, and the Chicago Cubs should be right with them with strong winds expected to be blowing out at Wrigley.

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.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitcher

Zack Greinke ($9,100 on FanDuel): Although he's yet to have a truly big fantasy output on FanDuel this season, Zack Greinke has standout peripherals through five starts, posting a 3.08 SIERA, 26.2% strikeout rate, and 2.5% walk rate. The velocity remains down, but his strikeout rate is right around what he had in 2017, and his swinging-strike rate is holding at an encouraging 13.6% clip. The trouble is he gets a difficult matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are showing a 4.00 implied team total. Still, Greinke is one of the better talents on the board, keeping him in play. Charlie Morton ($9,200) finds himself in a similar situation as he runs into a buzzsaw in the New York Yankees, but Morton has shown an awesome ceiling.
