3 MLB FanDuel Studs to Target on 4/19/19
Justin Verlander, P, Houston Astros
Verlander hasn't opened 2019 with quite as impressive numbers as he posted in 2018, but his 3.13 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) and 31.3% strikeout rate (backed by a 13.4% swinging-strike rate) are still studly marks.
His matchup with the Texas Rangers may hurt his floor a bit, as they've flexed some above-average power on the year, but their 25.0% strikeout rate is also tied for the ninth on the Majors.
We've got Verlander projected for 7.1 strikeouts here, and he's our top-projected fantasy pitcher outside of Kluber tonight.
