FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Monday 8/5/19

Following a pair of disastrous sweeps to to the Yankees and Rays, the Red Sox may be on the brink of falling out of the wild card race. Luckily for us, we needn't worry about such things in DFS, and on Monday's main slate, they boast an alluring 6.99 implied total against a struggling Mike Montgomery. The Bronx Bombers, Reds, and Brewers should also produce at the plate tonight, while the pitching side of things finds a pair of excellent hurlers rising above the rest.

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

Charlie Morton ($10,100 on FanDuel): Late-bloomer Charlie Morton is in the midst of yet another strong campaign, sporting some of the best overall numbers on the board with a 3.61 SIERA, 30.1% strikeout rate, and 7.9% walk rate. A rock-solid 49.4% ground-ball rate and 32.6% hard-hit rate has helped him suppress home runs, too, as he's only allowing 0.66 home runs per nine innings -- something that's nothing new for him (0.76 career average). A home start at pitcher-friendly Tropicana Field against the Blue Jays only adds to his appeal tonight (3.14 implied total), with Toronto's active roster striking out 24.8% of the time against right-handers this season.
