On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.

Pitchers to Target

Patrick Corbin ($10,500 on FanDuel): With Blake Snell throwing just 2.0 innings and 26 pitches in his last start -- his first since July -- he's only expected to pitch a few innings tonight, leaving Patrick Corbin as the top hurler on the board. Corbin has enjoyed another strong campaign, and while most of his peripherals aren't quite as good as 2018, a 3.87 SIERA and 28.4% strikeout rate aren't anything to scoff at, and in a season where the ball is flying out of the park, he's only allowing 0.99 home runs per nine innings. He gets a solid matchup against the Phillies, whose active roster is around league average against lefties and strike out at a 23.1% clip.
