FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 5/11/19

We have Jacob deGrom, Gerrit Cole and Max Scherzer at our disposal on tonight's main slate. Taking on the Marlins at pitcher-friendly Citi Field, is deGrom the pick of the litter?

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

Jacob deGrom ($11,300 on FanDuel): DeGrom brings a 33.5% strikeout rate, 15.3% swinging-strike rate and 3.14 SIERA into a pristine home matchup with the Miami Marlins. The Marlins sit dead last in wOBA (.264) and own the 10th-highest strikeout rate (24.9%). The New York Mets are -320 moneyline favorites while Miami holds a mere 2.61 implied total, the lowest on the slate by a wide margin (as of Saturday morning). Our models project deGrom for 46.2 FanDuel points, tops on the slate.
