FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Thursday 6/6/19
Thursday's main slate may be just five games, but we could have some fun stacking opportunities in store for us, with a hot one in Arlington between the Rangers and Orioles and a dreamy matchup for the Yankees against an over-the-hill Edwin Jackson. The Angels also draw a plus matchup against a homer-prone Mike Fiers.
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
Patrick Corbin ($10,900 on FanDuel): Patrick Corbin is coming off a disastrous outing against the Reds in which he actually scored negative FanDuel points, but overall, he's been mostly excellent this season, sporting a 3.81 SIERA, 26.9% strikeout rate, and 7.1% walk rate. Although that may not be quite on the level of his brilliant 2018 campaign, some regression was always expected, and he continues to throw his wicked slider over a third of the time. He gets an ideal matchup to forget about that last start, taking on a Padres squad whose current roster owns a 26.6% strikeout rate and 89 wRC+ against southpaws. Trevor Bauer ($10,400) has underwhelmed this season and draws a brutal matchup against the Twins, but his strikeout rate (27.0%) and swinging-strike rate (12.4%) are right there with Corbin for the best on the slate. The opponent makes him risky, but you could do worse than bet on talent here.
