FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Saturday 8/29/20

The beauty of daily fantasy baseball is that the main goals are different every day. Whether it’s the right catcher destroying the launch with the left hand or the mid-range hurler tackling a depleted lineup, you won’t find yourself using the same resources multiple times.

While this breaks the monotony, it can make it difficult to decide which players are ready to be successful on any given day. We can help bridge this gap.

In addition to our custom optimal lineups, you can check out our batting and pitching heatmaps, which show the pieces in the best spot to succeed on that board. Put the finishing touches on our games and line-ups page to see who hits where and what the weather is, and you’ll have a sleek looking team to put on some big points totals.

If you need help getting started on that trek, here are some of the best options on the chalkboard today. We will focus solely on the main list.

Launchers to the target

Dylan Bundy ($ 9,500 on FanDuel) it’s on its level tonight. Facing the Seattle Mariners, a team sporting the fourth worst wOBA (.301) and fans at the tenth highest clip (24.4%), Bundy has a floor / ceiling combo that is unrivaled on this list. It has been outstanding in 2020 so far, boasting a strikeout rate of 28.9%, a walk rate of 5.3% and an SIERA of 3.45. I won’t fade Bundy in many formations.

After Bundy, I like it Ross Stripling ($ 7,300). He’s on his way against the Texas Rangers, an offense that has been terrible this season with a 29th-placed .278 wOBA. Stripling hasn’t been that good this year, maintaining a bad fluctuation rate of 6.8% across 29 2/3 frames. But it had a strikeout rate of 25.1% and a swinging strikeout rate of 10.4% last year, and Texas’s implied total of 3.91 is a number we can feel good about.

Lance Lynn ($ 9,500) is Brett Anderson ($ 8,000) worth a look. Anderson has a sweet encounter with the Pittsburgh Pirates and has scored 31 and 40 FanDuel points in his last two outings. Lynn is a Bundy pivot and shouldn’t be seeing much ownership thanks to a brutal bout with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Not sure I can go here, but Lynn has a 28.4% strikeout rate in 2020.

Pile on target

Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres

It’s Adrian Morejon against Antonio Senzatela today in Coors. We should do a lot of racing. I’m not going to list all the intended starters, but if they’re in formation, they’re at stake. However, I want to highlight some of the moderately priced bats.

The rights of the Colorado Rockies Garrett Hampson ($ 3,400) is Matt Kemp ($ 3,200) they are easy to appreciate at this price as they will retain the platoon advantage against left Morejon. If Hampson is in first place, he could be the highest property hitter on the list. Jake Cronenworth ($ 3,300) is Jurickson Profar ($ 3,000) they are cheaper ways to access the Padres and both will hit from the left side.

Washington Nationals

Chris Mazza is taking the ball for the Boston Red Soxand the Washington Nationals result in a juicy 5.79 implied total. Outside of a good percentage of the ball to the ground in minors, nothing in Mazza’s profile is noteworthy.

Juan Soto ($ 4,700) it’s rising in price, but the guy is a monster. He has a ridiculous .525 wOBA against righties in this year’s small champion. The only downside is that it will likely be popular, even at this price point. Trea Turner ($ 3,900) it’s the other expensive Nat’s club, and it’s worth the price too.

However, I think the best course of action might be to load up a low-budget four-man stack of national teams and spend the rest at Coors. Asdrubal Cabrera ($ 2,800), Adam Eaton ($ 2,800), Howie Kendrick ($ 2,700) is Eric Thames ($ 2,300) I’m a fun four-man match that doesn’t break the bank.

Boston Red Sox

On the other side of that game, the Red Sox have an implied total of 5.71. I’m up against Anibal Sanchez, who is currently recording the worst career scores in the hard hit rate (44.3%) and SIERA (5.28).

A few months ago you would have gotten some weird looks from people if you had said Mitch Moreland ($ 3,900) it will be the Red Sox’s most expensive bat by $ 500, but today it is. He’s also fully deserved, as he crushed the tune rights of a .522 wOBA, 56.1% hard hits and 51.2% volley this season.

The 1-2-3-4 batters will likely be Alex Verdugo ($ 3,000), Rafael Devers ($ 3,400), JD Martinez ($ 3,400) is Xander Bogaerts ($ 3,400). Verdugo bills itself as one of the best point-for-dollar games on the list if it’s leading. It owns a .390 wOBA and a hard hit rate of 41.8% against rights in 2020. It’s a nice one-off choice if you don’t want to stack full in Boston.

Other stacks to consider – The Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Trevor Cahill (5.04 implied total) and Milwaukee Brewers against JT Brubaker (5.14) implied total.
