FanDuel Picks For July 30

More from DFS

Welcome back to the best place to get fantasy sports advice across multiple sports. Today I am going to give you my best picks and choices for your FanDuel lineups that I can. My advice is based purely on mathematical and statistical analysis and I try to avoid using player biases and so forth.

NOTE: these FanDuel picks are based solely on statistics. Some players have never faced their opponents, or have very little experience against them. I am not saying that none of those are good picks. This is based on statistical analysis only. If you have a gut feeling, then by all means, follow that. This is not an exact science.

Here are my FanDuel Picks for July 30:

Next: FanDuel Pitcher Options

Pitcher Options:

Jimmy Nelson, Brewers ($7,400): Jimmy Nelson has been pitching pretty well over his last five of his last six starts. He is a good option due to his price and the likelihood of him throwing down at least 15 fantasy points. Nelson has a pretty good match-up against the Cubs and with Jake Arrieta on the mound we could be in for quite a pitcher’s duel.

Jake Arrieta, Cubs ($10,400): I very rarely suggest using two pitchers from the same game, but I expect both of these guys to be fantasy worthy for the game on the 30th. Arrieta is pitching brilliantly lately and he could be good for anywhere from ten to 20 plus fantasy points. He is more costly, but he is a more certain thing. Nelson is more for the riverboat gamblers, while Arrieta is more for the conservative player.

Next: FanDuel Infield Hitter Options

  • Joey Votto, Reds ($4,100): Votto has been on fire lately. He has somewhere around a .700 on-base percentage and comes into the game against a pretty familiar face. He is facing off with Jeff Locke and has a .353 batting average against him with two RBI. He should be a pretty safe bet to get us positive fantasy points for us.

    Ryan Howard, Phillies ($3,000): I realize I have picked two first basemen, but I feel like both guys are very fantasy worthy for the 30th and most of you guys all play more than one lineup a day anyway. Howard has been playing pretty well lately and has a familiar face on the mound as well. He has a .357 average with three homers and six RBI against Shelby Miller.

    Outfield Hitter Options:

    Chris Coghlan, Cubs ($3,000): Coghlan has been pretty hot with the bat and is a pretty good options for us on the 30th. He has hit three home runs in his last seven games and has a fairly decent match-up. He squares off with Jimmy Nelson and has seen him 12 times with four hits and one of them being a home run. He is a bit of a gamble, but you have to gamble in order to win.

    Austin Jackson, Mariners ($2,500): Jackson is playing pretty good and looks to be a pretty safe gamble for the 30th. He is facing off against Phil Hughes and has a pretty solid average of .296 against him. He also has a home run, a RBI and four stolen bases.

    As always we thank you for stopping by and wish you FanDuelers the best of luck!
