FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Friday 7/26/19

Can Zack Greinke live up to his expensive price tag tonight and deal with the lowly Marlins?

A full 14-game slate brings us three pitchers over the $10K mark along with plenty of value to fit them into your lineups. We also have no Coors Field on this slate, but still see seven offenses coming in with implied totals sitting at 5.00 or higher.

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

High-Priced Pitchers

Zack Greinke ($10,200 on FanDuel): Greinke comes in as the second most expensive pitcher on the slate, but has a far better matchup compared to Hyun-jin Ryu, who is the most expensive option and up against a surging Washington Nationals. Greinke is up against the Miami Marlins, who are a team we've picked on all season long and that isn't going to be stopping tonight. Miami is carrying a 25.5% strikeout rate versus right-handed pitchers this season, which is the fifth-worst in the league. This will allow Greinke to continue his streak of six strikeouts or more in five straight starts. The Marlins are also carrying a .122 ISO (30th in the league) and a 75 wRC+ (29th in the league) versus right-handed pitchers this season, making this one of the softest matchups on the slate. Greinke has been borderline elite this season -- which is why his name is popping up before the trade deadline -- with his 3.61 xFIP, 23.7% strikeout rate and only allowing a 35.4% hard-hit rate.
