On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Chris Sale ($12,000 on FanDuel): Arguably the best pitcher in baseball when he's right, Chris Sale's early-season woes are long forgotten at this point, as he's rattled off double-digit punchouts in nine of his last 11 games, posting a ridiculous 2.37 SIERA, 41.4% strikeout rate, and 5.7% walk rate over that span. The price tag may be sky-high, but so too is his ceiling these days, already exceeding 60 FanDuel points three times (67, 70, 73), with only one of those scores benefiting from a win. Good luck to the Blue Jays trying to handle the lanky lefty. The Jays have an active roster that's below average against left-handers (95 wRC+) and strikes out at a 25.1% clip.
