FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 8/31/19

Clayton Kershaw has offered a superb floor all season. With some other high-upside arms on the slate, is the Dodgers' lefty worth rostering tonight?

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

Stephen Strasburg ($11,200 on FanDuel): It's Stras against the Miami Marlins. Do you need me to give ya much else? Probably not, but I will. Miami has the slate's lowest implied total (3.21), and our models have Strasburg in his own tier tonight, projecting him for 42.1 FanDuel points, 7.1 more than anyone else. In cash games, Stras is the way to go, and he'll likely see plenty of ownership in GPPs, as well, though we have some other quality arms at our disposal.
