On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Noah Syndergaard ($10,400 on FanDuel): Noah Syndergaard is one of several big-name hurlers to endure a rocky opening month to the season, and Syndergaard must have been happy to put April behind him, roasting the Reds for a complete game shutout in his first May start (67 FanDuel points). And despite his early struggles, he's actually posted a rock-solid 3.49 SIERA, 27.4% strikeout rate, and 6.2% walk rate, while also owning the league's fifth-best soft-hit rate (26.3%). Hopefully, last week's brilliant outing is a sign of things to come, and Syndergaard has the right matchup to keep things going, taking on the Padres at Petco Park (3.45 implied total). The Padres have some pop, but their active roster has only mustered a 79 wRC+ against righties with a generous 26.5% strikeout rate.
