FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 6/25/19
It's easy to throw around terms like "loaded" or "jam-packed" when describing 15-game slates, but this one truly does fit that mold, with both top-of-the-line aces toeing the rubber and massive implied totals in play for our bats. Some of the top hitting matchups include the Yankees, Red Sox, Padres, Brewers, Phillies, and Indians, plus we get another windy evening at Wrigley Field. As of this writing, there's some rain expected in Boston, but it doesn't look to be a major concern tonight.
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.
Pitchers to Target
Max Scherzer ($12,200 on FanDuel): It feels like we've seen high-priced chalk pitchers fail more often than usual in 2019, but it doesn't get much better than Max Scherzer against the Miami Marlins. Surprisingly, Scherzer has underwhelmed in his two starts versus Miami this year (37 and 25 FanDuel points), though that shouldn't stop us from rostering one of the league's best against an active roster that's been routinely skewered by opposing pitchers and owns a league-low .124 ISO versus righties. While it's worth noting that the Marlins' current group actually has a neutral strikeout rate in the split (22.5%), Mad Max has been a man possessed lately, producing a 2.48 SIERA, 39.6% strikeout rate, and 4.5% walk rate over four June starts. It's a hefty price tag for sure, but one that should be well worth it when it's all said and done.
