Fan Duel fantasy baseball helper for 5/1/22

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!

Let’s check out the top options on today’s main slate.

Pitchers

Corbin Burnes ($10,700)

Milwaukee’s 27-year old right hander has been in exceptional form despite a rough 2022 debut, recording a 18.1% swinging strike rate and a 2.33 expected Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) rating in 25.2 total innings.

On Sunday afternoon, Burnes will have a great spot to prolong his fast start in a divisional matchup against a Chicago Cubs’ lineup with a 28.1% projected K-rate against right-handers and low 71.4% contact percentage.

numberFire’s models currently project Burnes as today’s top rated pitcher with a 39.6 FanDuel point expectation and 7.6 strikeouts.

Kevin Gausman ($9,900)

After a 2.9% decrease in his FanDuel salary, Gausman currently ranks as numberFire’s second rated pitcher with a 34.6 fantasy projection and 6.8 strikeouts.

Toronto’s right-hander has been pitching well through 24.2 innings this season, producing a microscopic 1.85 expected FIP and a 32.6% strikeout rate.

Gausman will have an overall good matchup against a Houston team with a 23.9% strikeout percentage and a 0.296 weighted on-base average in their last two seasons.

Sandy Alcantara ($9,500)

Alcantara is a slightly cheaper option in a favorable opportunity against a weak Seattle Mariners lineup with a 27.6% K-rate, 72% contact percentage, and a .292 wOBA.
