FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 8/13/19
Following a bare bones pitching slate on Monday, we get a slew of strong options to sift through on Tuesday's 14-game offering. There's also still plenty of offense, with round two between the Diamondbacks and Rockies at Coors Field, and the Yankees getting yet another chance to beat up on the poor Orioles.
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
Chris Sale ($10,500 on FanDuel): It hasn't exactly been a banner year for Chris Sale, but as he showed against the Angels last week, even in tough matchups, few can match his ridiculous upside when he's on his game. In that contest, Sale racked up 13 strikeouts over 8.0 scoreless innings on his way to 73 FanDuel points -- the third time he's posted 70 or more points this year. That's remarkable for a pitcher having a "bad" year by his standards, and even with the inconsistent results, he's got a squeaky clean 3.02 SIERA, 35.3% strikeout rate, and 6.0% walk rate -- numbers most pitchers can only dream of. Like the Angels, the Indians don't make for an ideal opponent -- their active roster strikes out at an only 18.2% clip versus southpaws -- but despite the risks, Sale has proven he's still capable of coming away with the top score on the night.
