FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 9/15/18

German Marquez is dealing, and he gets a sublime road matchup with the Giants. Which other players are in a good spot on Saturday's main slate?

The beauty of daily fantasy baseball is that the top targets are different each and every day. Whether it's the right-handed catcher who destroys left-handed pitching or the mid-range hurler facing a depleted lineup, you're not going to find yourself using the same assets time after time.

While this breaks up the monotony, it can make it hard to decide which players are primed to succeed on a given day. We can help bridge that gap.

In addition to our custom optimal lineups, you can check out our batting and pitching heat maps, which show the pieces in the best spot to succeed on that slate. Put on the finishing touches with our games and lineups page to see who's hitting where and what the weather looks like, and you'll have yourself a snazzy-looking team to put up some big point totals.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. We'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitchers

German Marquez ($10,600 on FanDuel): So, Marquez is, like, really dang good. He's posted a single-game swinging-strike rate of at least 10.0% in 12 of his last 13 outings, and in the second half, he's pitched to a 2.29 xFIP with a 33.1% strikeout rate and 6.0% walk rate while limiting hitters to a .253 wOBA. Yowza. Not only is he away from Coors tonight, he's up against a San Francisco Giants offense with the main slate's lowest implied total (3.25). Versus righties in 2018, the Giants sit 27th in wOBA (.295) with the 6th-highest strikeout rate (24.1%). Marquez is in play in all formats.
