FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Wednesday 4/24/19
Today's game at Coors Field gets going in the afternoon, leaving us with a more traditional main slate for offense but one that still draws favorable spots for the Red Sox, Astros, Orioles, White Sox, and Phillies. Pitching remains a bit more sparse as it's been all week, though a handful of arms rise to the top.
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
Justin Verlander ($11,000 on FanDuel): It's been a shaky start to the season for many of the league's top arms, but Justin Verlander just keeps on trucking along at age 36 with a cool 3.40 SIERA, 30.9% strikeout rate, and 7.3% walk rate. Never one to possess a high ground-ball rate, arguably his only worry has been a 49.3% hard-hit rate, which has led to allowing a home run in all five of his starts. But we shouldn't worry too much as long as he's mowing down batters with regularity, keeping most of those longballs to the solo shot variety. The Twins don't make for the easiest opponent -- they boast an impressive 122 wRC+ and 18.0% strikeout rate against righties -- but their active roster posted a less intimidating 105 wRC+ in the split last year, suggesting they could be overachieving. In either case, Verlander owns the best numbers of the slate, and a man of his talents is capable of twirling a gem against any opponent.
