FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 6/15/19

Max Kepler and the Twins have a delightful matchup with Glenn Sparkman. Which other players should you build around tonight?

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

Noah Syndergaard ($9,000 on FanDuel): It's an interesting pitching slate tonight. We've got a few high-octane hurlers going, but none of them have a great matchup. Syndergaard fits that mold as he hosts the St. Louis Cardinals. Thor has been a little up and down this season, but he's got four straight outings with a swinging-strike rate of at least 11.7%. Over those last four starts, he's allowing a meager .282 wOBA and 30.1% hard-hit rate while recording a 23.6% strikeout rate. Our models have him as the day's top pitcher, projecting Syndergaard for 39.4 FanDuel points.
