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

High-Priced Pitchers

Patrick Corbin ($10,800 on FanDuel): Although the Mets' active roster has produced a solid 109 wRC+ against lefties this season, they also strike out at a crazy 29.6% clip, a mark that trails only the Rangers. Even if we expand that sample to include 2018, New York still holds the third-highest rate (25.5%), so we have to like Patrick Corbin's chances of cashing in some punchouts tonight. While Corbin's SIERA is up a bit from last year, it's hard to complain about a 3.51 SIERA, 29.2% strikeout rate and 7.6% walk rate, and he's coming off a stellar start against this same Mets team, where he racked up 11 strikeouts on his way to 64 FanDuel points.
