FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Monday 9/2/19
The beauty of daily fantasy baseball is that the top targets are different each and every day. Whether it's the right-handed catcher who destroys left-handed pitching or the mid-range hurler facing a depleted lineup, you're not going to find yourself using the same assets time after time.
While this breaks up the monotony, it can make it hard to decide which players are primed to succeed on a given day. We can help bridge that gap.
In addition to our custom optimal lineups, you can check out our batting and pitching heat maps, which show the pieces in the best spot to succeed on that slate. Put on the finishing touches with our games and lineups page to see who's hitting where and what the weather looks like, and you'll have yourself a snazzy-looking team to put up some big point totals.
If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the top options on the board today. We'll be focusing exclusively on the main slate.
Pitchers to Target
Kyle Hendricks ($8,100 on FanDuel): On a fairly poor pitching slate, Hendricks looks pretty appealing at home against the Seattle Mariners. While Hendricks lacks the upside of a usual top-shelf ace, he has a really nice floor, sporting a 4.8% walk rate while limiting hard contact (33.7% hard-hit rate), and his lack of upside isn't as much of a negative on this slate. Seattle also helps inch up Hendricks' ceiling as they have the sixth-highest strikeout rate against righties this year (25.2%). Our models don't project too much between the top eight hurlers on this slate. Hendricks is in that group, pegged for 30.0 FanDuel points, and he's the slate's biggest favorite (-290) as of Monday morning.
