FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Wednesday 8/15/18
We've got 10 games to occupy us on Wednesday's main slate, and once again we have one pitcher who stands out from the rest. There isn't necessary a must-have offense tonight, but the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves, and Toronto Blue Jays are among the most enticing spots.
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
Gerrit Cole ($10,400 on FanDuel): Much like Justin Verlander last night, Gerrit Cole benefits from a matchup against the road-tripping Colorado Rockies, granting him top honors on this slate. Although Cole isn't quite mowing guys down at the clip he was early in the year, he still holds the best marks on the board with a 2.96 SIERA, 34.2% strikeout rate, and 8.3% walk rate. For all of the Rockies' exploits at home, the reality is this offense carries a poor 79 wRC+ and 23.4% strikeout rate when facing righties, making them a great offense to target with pitchers when they're away from Coors. This isn't looking like the best evening for value bats, but it will be worth digging deep to fit Cole into your cash games. Colorado is showing a slate-low 3.14 implied team total.
