Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Rankings, lineup advice for Tuesday, August 22

It's a rare day with 32 pitchers to choose from, with the Phillies and Marlins playing the lone day game in Game 1 of their doubleheader. Aaron Nola will pitch that game, which means he won't be available on daily fantasy baseball main slates, but there are plenty of good options in the 15-game evening slate.

Jimmy Nelson has hit the skids a bit, but he's the top guy today with a great matchup at San Francisco. Chris Archer is a strong second-placepick, as he continues to go deep into games and rack up the Ks. Carlos Carrasco got knocked around last time out against the Red Sox, but he should bounce back.

The Red Sox don't strike out much, but Carrasco should fare much better. Although Lance Lynn faces a high-strikeout offense, he hasn't struck out more than four batters in his past four starts. Lynn should go deep, but his strikeout number will be small.

Patrick Corbin has thrown a quality start with seven-plus strikeouts in each of his past three outings. Against the struggling Mets in pitcher-friendly Citi Field, he can do it again. A boom-or-bust candidate for second straight outing is John Lackey, who boomed last week.
