FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Monday 8/6/18

Trevor Bauer is in the midst of a breakout season, and he's the slate's top hurler, per our models. Who else should you roster on Monday?

Monday's 10-game slate grants us a solid pitching selection across all price points, headlined by Trevor Bauer and Charlie Morton at the top of the list. That doesn't mean we're lacking on the hitting side, though, with the Colorado Rockies hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates at Coors Field, along with enticing spots for the New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners, Chicago Cubs, and Texas Rangers.

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

Trevor Bauer ($11,500 on FanDuel): Although Trevor Bauer earned his 10th win the last time out, he's coming off a modest performance against the Minnesota Twins, managing just 3 punchouts over 6 1/3 innings. But given that his velocity was just fine, it's likely only a blip on the radar. Bauer continues to enjoy a breakout 2018 campaign, sporting a 3.27 SIERA, 30.7% strikeout rate, and 8.4% walk rate. If we're nitpicking, he's benefited from a fortuitous 5.5% home-run-to-fly-ball rate, but otherwise it's hard to poke holes in Bauer's stellar marks. He gets a chance at a more fruitful fantasy outing against these same Twins, who are showing a slate-low 3.35 implied team total.
