FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Monday 6/10/19
Monday's slate checks in at a solid nine games, though keep an eye on the weather in a few locations, as places like New York and Philadelphia could get some rain tonight. Coors Field makes its triumphant return this week, and the Nationals also find themselves in a plum spot tonight.
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
Chris Sale ($11,800 on FanDuel): It may be a Coors Field night, but you may have to strongly consider paying up for Chris Sale instead, who's coming off a masterful complete game shutout against the Royals (73 FanDuel points) and draws a plus matchup at home against the Rangers. Texas is far less effective versus lefties, with an active roster that owns a 79 wRC+ and 23.7% strikeout rate in the split. Meanwhile, Sale has tallied double-digit strikeouts in seven of his last nine starts, boasting a 41.6% strikeout rate over that span. Already posting 67 or more FanDuel points three times this year, few can match Sale's ceiling when he's got things going, and this is another matchup where he could crush it. Note that there's some rain in the forecast, but as of this writing, it looks like it should largely miss most of the game.
