FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 6/26/18

On a night brimming with high-priced aces, Joey Gallo is a great value hitter to target. Which other low-cost bats should you look at to help you pay up at pitcher?

We've got aces galore on Tuesday's hefty 14-game slate, and while we'll have to narrow that down for cash games, you'll be able to go any number of directions in tournaments. On offense, the Boston Red Sox rise to the top, but they're hardly alone, with the Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres, Houston Astros, and Atlanta Braves among the others to consider picking from.

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 Pitchers

Corey Kluber ($11,800 on FanDuel): There's something that always feels particularly safe about enlisting Corey Kluber's services, and it probably has a little to do with that pristine 2.87 SIERA, 27.2% strikeout rate, and league-best 2.9% walk rate. Not only is Kluber incredibly consistent, he also routinely pitches deep into games, tossing a quality start in 15 of 16 outings in 2018. And throwing behind a strong Cleveland Indians offense has helped him to 11 wins, tied for the best in the majors. The punchouts may not be where they were in 2017, but otherwise, Kluber is as rock-solid as they come, and the St. Louis Cardinals are showing a mere 3.30 implied team total. On most nights, he would be a shoo-in top choice, but with so many viable alternatives, you'll have to decide whether he's worth his steep salary.
