FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 9/14/19

We've got several big-name pitchers going tonight, but a lot of them have tough matchups. Does that push us to Madison Bumgarner in a home date with the Marlins?

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

Madison Bumgarner ($9,900 on FanDuel): Whew -- this is a really fun pitching slate. We've got several top-level arms going, but the guy with the best matchup is Bumgarner, who is up against the Miami Marlins at pitcher-friendly Oracle Park. Miami, as you know, stinks. Versus lefties this year, they rank next to last in wOBA (.292), and they're sporting a 3.15 implied total, tied for the slate's lowest. MadBum -- the owner of a 4.14 SIERA, 24.1% strikeout rate, 5.1% walk rate and 11.1% swinging-strike rate -- is more than capable of crushing in this spot, and our models project him to score 31.7 FanDuel points, and he's a -210 moneyline favorite.
