FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Thursday 10/17/19

The MLB playoffs resume on Thursday night for Game 4 of the ALCS. Will the Astros be able to do some damage against Masahiro Tanaka?

Following a brief hiatus with yesterday's postponement, the American League is back in action again tonight, pitting Masahiro Tanaka against Zack Greinke. The Yankees are favored at home, edging the Astros in implied team total tonight (4.49 - 4.01).

For those unfamiliar with the single-game daily fantasy baseball format, scoring is identical to its full roster cousin, except you only roster hitters and lineups consist of five flex spots. The one twist? One of the five roster spots is your designated "MVP," who receives 2-times his total fantasy points, along with an "All-Star" slot that gets 1.5-times the points. Naturally, it's crucial that you choose your MVP and All-Star carefully if you want to be at the top of the leaderboards when it's all said and done.

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