FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 4/27/19

Noah Syndergaard and Clayton Kershaw headline today's main slate. Which one is the top play, per our models?

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

Noah Syndergaard ($9,300 on FanDuel): The Milwaukee Brewers aren't the same offense away from home, putting up a .296 wOBA and 25.7% strikeout rate on the road this season. They're sporting a mere 3.49 implied total today, the second-lowest on the slate, for a matchup with Thor at Citi Field. Syndergaard owns a 3.42 SIERA, 27.6% strikeout rate, 12.4% swinging-strike rate and 5.7% walk rate. Given his $1,600 discount off of Clayton Kershaw, Syndergaard and his upside are awfully appealing -- we project him for a slate-high 39.0 FanDuel points -- though Kershaw shapes up as a better cash-game play.
