Should you panic because your guys are off to a slow start? History says that players that really struggle early on can still be effective options over the course of the season. I'll go through some of the slow starters in 2010 – guys like Mark Teixeira and Justin Verlander – and hopefully show you that remaining patient is often the prudent move.

RT @FantasyAlarm: Daily Fantasy Baseball Playbook: August 30th @Tedschuster

At this point, it's Duda RT @Masterv520: Better 1B for a keeper league. Ike Davis or Lucas duda?

Schoop has a .357 SLG which is lower than Ben Revere for god sakes RT @tpaln: but what's he slugging? 11 extra base hits in last month

When did I say anything about defense or winning? Ur tripping RT @jpfask: @CaseyADavis so defense and winning is less important than OBP?

a .251 OBP is humiliating. If he's not then he's got no understanding of game. RT @jpfask: @CaseyADavis because I'm sure he's not humiliated
