FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Sunday 8/25/19

On a slate with a few appealing top-end arms, is Shane Bieber the way to go thanks to his matchup with the Royals?

The beauty of daily fantasy baseball is that the top targets are different each and every day. Whether it's the right-handed catcher who destroys left-handed pitching or the mid-range hurler facing a depleted lineup, you're not going to find yourself using the same assets time after time.

While this breaks up the monotony, it can make it hard to decide which players are primed to succeed on a given day. We can help bridge that gap.

In addition to our custom optimal lineups, you can check out our batting and pitching heat maps, which show the pieces in the best spot to succeed on that slate. Put on the finishing touches with our games and lineups page to see who's hitting where and what the weather looks like, and you'll have yourself a snazzy-looking team to put up some big point totals.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. We'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate.

Pitchers to Target

High-Priced Pitchers

Shane Bieber ($11,400 on FanDuel): After a Saturday main slate that was light on top-shelf arms, we have some good hurlers to choose from today. Bieber tops the list. He's posted a 3.32 SIERA, 30.9% strikeout rate, 14.2% swinging-strike rate and 5.1% walk rate this season -- not much to quibble with there. He's up against a Kansas City Royals lineup that boasts a meager 3.36 implied total, the lowest of the slate, and our models have him as the clear top arm today.
