FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 7/16/19
Similar to last night, we get plenty of intriguing hurlers across Tuesday's 15-game slate, though the most talented ones don't get the benefit of particularly easy matchups. Still, there's also some value to be found in the lower-priced tiers, and hitting is once again in great abundance. Coors Field moves to the front of the list in another round between the Giants and Rockies, followed by teams like the Nationals, Red Sox, and Indians.
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
Walker Buehler ($10,000 on FanDuel): Despite every team being in action, only three guys surpass the $9k mark in Walker Buehler, Lance Lynn ($9,800), and Brandon Woodruff ($9,600). However, Lynn has to contend with hitter-friendly Globe Life Park, while Woodruff faces a tough Braves squad, leaving Buehler with arguably the best draw on the road against the Phillies. Sure, the Phillies aren't total pushovers, but their active roster carries a middle-of-the-road 99 wRC+ and 22.8% strikeout versus right-handers, so this isn't an especially scary matchup, either. Furthermore, Buehler has also been one of the best pitchers in the league since the start of May, boasting a 3.04 SIERA, 30.4% strikeout rate, and 1.7% walk rate over that span. If you're paying up, he's easily tonight's strongest overall option.
