Mookie Betts and the Red Sox lead the pack offensively in an enticing spot against Jaime Barria. Who else should you consider on Thursday's four-game main slate?

We're getting a tidy four-game main slate on Thursday evening, highlighted by a two-horse race for top pitching honors. There's a bit more to choose from on offense, with the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels leading the way at Fenway Park.

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

Lance McCullers ($10,400 on FanDuel): Lance McCullers isn't showing the same dominant form he displayed at times last season, but he's put together a solid 3.68 SIERA, 25.7% strikeout rate, and 53.0% ground-ball rate, and he has achieved a quality start in 11 of his last 13 outings. A 9.3% walk rate is still an issue, but otherwise, McCullers has proven to be fairly reliable. There's some punchout upside to be found against the Tampa Bay Rays, who are displaying a mere 3.36 implied team total at Tropicana Field. The one downside is the hefty price tag, but McCullers is arguably the top arm on a limited slate.
