The end is approaching as the 2015 Major League Baseball season leaving FanDuel owners just a few more days to cash in. That gives us a chance to build our winning FanDuel lineup for Sunday September 26th, 2015.
The good news for every FanDuel owner the starting pitching options at the top of the list can carry the load. The top few options include Cy Young Candidate Jake Arrieta, Dallas Keuchel, Jacob deGrom and Gio Gonzalez. All of these options are great ones to build any fantasy lineup around. The question is which one of these starters will be the right one to anchor our chances to take home some serious cash.
At the plate we have some solid options including Jesus Montero, Victor Martinez, Grady Sizemore and Aaron Hill. The good news all of those options will help you with your salary cap budget especially if you elect to go with a few of those top starting pitching options.
Our exclusive FanDuel MLB Lineup with options for Sunday September 26th, 2015.
Starting Pitcher – Jake Arrieta ($12,500): Arrieta is a very expensive option but he has turned out back to back double digit fantasy performances against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Along with those two outings, Arrieta has turned in at least 12 fantasy points in each of his last five starts.
Other top Fantasy Starting Pitching options Danny Salazar, Dallas Keuchel and Hisashi Iwakuma.
Catcher – A.J. Pierzynski ($2,200): The Atlanta Braves catcher is a nice solid cheap option at the catcher position. Based on his solid success against Tom Koehler including two home runs he has earned a spot in our lineup. Only suggestion is to monitor the lineups as the day goes on.
Other top Fantasy Catcher options for Sunday include Evan Gattis, Miguel Montero and Salvador Perez.
First Base – Jesus Montero ($2,600): The Seattle Mariners first baseman is six for 12 lifetime off of Jered Weaver in his career. Five of those six hits have gone for home runs making him a perfect option on Sunday.
Other top Fantasy First Base options include Prince Fielder, Darin Ruf and Eric Hosmer.
Second Base – Aaron Hill ($2,500): Hill is another solid fantasy play based on his past success against the opposing starter he is expected to face. That starter is James Shield but Hill has found a way to get to him including connecting on four home runs.
Other top Fantasy Second Base options include Jason Kipnis, Jose Altuve and Scooter Gennett.
Third Base – Luis Valbuena ($2,400): We love the Houston Astros third base man simply based on his power potential. That being said if you elect to go cheaper in the outfield other than Bryce Harper you could spend a few extra dollars at third base.
Other top Fantasy Third Base options include Manny Machado, Nolan Arenado and Justin Turner.
Short Stop – Freddy Galvis ($2,200): Looking for a cheap option at short stop landed us with the Philadelphia Phillies short stop. Galvis has hit Gio Gonzalez well in his career including three extra base hits.
Other top Fantasy Short Stop options include Jean Segura, Starlin Castro and J.J. Hardy.
Outfielder – Grady Sizemore ($2,600): Sizemore is another one of those solid Fantasy Bargains on Sunday. Sizemore has six extra base hits off of Mark Buehrle in his career with four career home runs.
Outfielder – Bryce Harper ($5,400): You could use Harper on any giving night or day to help your fantasy lineup. That being said the Washington Nationals outfielder is 10 for 22 in his career off of Aaron Harang with one home run.
Cameron Maybin ($2,300): Now if you elect to go with a cheaper option on the mound you could spend a little heavier in the outfield. You could also elect to go with a cheaper option other than Harper to save a few bucks to over spend in this spot. Maybin has three hits over his last two games with two runs batted in and two runs scored.
