FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Wednesday 6/12/19
Across an eight-pack of games tonight, Justin Verlander clearly sticks out amongst tonight's crew of pitchers, though he draws a matchup against an often dangerous Brewers squad. For our bats, Baltimore and Toronto are rolling out some weak pitchers in David Hess and Edwin Jackson against one another, while Atlanta, Minnesota, and Philadelphia are also in favorable spots.
Our daily helper is available every day to analyze FanDuel's main slate and help give you a starting point when you're building lineups. Be sure to also incorporate our great tools into your research process. Whether you're looking for daily projections, the latest starting lineups and weather, or batting and pitching heat maps to find the best matchups -- we've got you covered! And don't forget to take a listen to The Solo Shot podcast with Jim Sannes, who breaks down the MLB daily fantasy slate each day.
On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel main slate.
*Editor's note* Edwin Jackson was a late scratch this afternoon, and the Blue Jays will open a bullpen game with right-handed reliever Derek Law instead.
Pitchers to Target
Justin Verlander ($11,100 on FanDuel): With a 3.31 SIERA, 30.9% strikeout rate, and 5.3% walk rate, it won't take much convincing that Justin Verlander is the top hurler on the board tonight. However, while Milwaukee only has a 3.57 implied total, they could present some issues, as their active roster owns a .193 ISO against right-handed pitching, in addition to a 41.0% hard-hit rate and 10.2% walk rate -- all marks that rank in the top 10. Still, the good news is they also have a 24.3% strikeout rate in the split, so there's upside here if Verlander can navigate this lineup. He's been about as consistent as they come this season, notching a quality start in 12 of 14 outings -- demonstrating a solid floor -- and the ceiling remains strong, scoring 55 or more FanDuel points seven times.
