FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Sunday 7/22/18

Chris Sale will look to continue his dominance in the second half, and there's little reason to think he won't mow down the Detroit Tigers this afternoon. Who else should you check out for Sunday's main slate?

If you're looking to add some excitement to a lazy Sunday afternoon, we have eight games encompassing FanDuel's 1:07pm ET main slate, headlined by stud hurlers Chris Sale and Max Scherzer. There's no shortage of bats either, with the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, and Minnesota Twins leading the way on offense.

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!

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

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitcher

Chris Sale ($12,500 on FanDuel): While Max Scherzer remains a strong pivot in tournaments (if the weather holds up), Chris Sale earns the title of Sunday's top play. Despite pitching in the American League, Sale has moved past Scherzer in just about every meaningful stat category, and leads all qualified starters in SIERA (2.40), strikeout rate (37.2%), and soft-hit rate (28.5%). If that wasn't enough, Sale has steadily increased his velocity over the course of the season, and across his last five starts he's posted an absurd 0.30 FIP and 46.8% strikeout rate. This guy is on another level right now, and you're going to want him on your side against the Detroit Tigers (2.95 implied team total).
