FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Friday 5/24/19
As is customary on Fridays, we jump up to a packed 14-game main slate, featuring both some top-notch aces and the always tantalizing Coors Field. Are there any values at pitcher to allow us to spend up on our bats?
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
Blake Snell ($11,200 on FanDuel): Blake Snell is in the midst of another stellar campaign, leading all qualified starters in SIERA (2.58) and strikeout rate (37.8%), and even his walk rate sits at a career-best 6.4%. His batted-ball numbers also shine, ranking second best in both hard-hit rate (26.9%) and soft-hit rate (25.0%). Although Cleveland's active roster only carries the 20th-ranked strikeout rate against lefties (21.8%), they also hold a modest 92 wRC+ in the split, and given Snell's monstrous strikeout rate, it's not like he needs much help to rack up the punchouts.
