Not too much shaking this weekend in terms of streaming options. Saturday looks to have the best variety, but the two options for both the bookend days are nice choices, too.
Football is BACK!! Check out our 2013 Fantasy Football Rankings NOW to be ahead of your competition.
As always, the following pitchers are owned in less than 50% of leagues at this point, although Ubaldo Jiminez is getting close to no longer being an option, as his ownership this week tips out at 49%. Also, as I always warn, keep track of the pitchers you want to stream, as injury, weather and managerial decisions can often play with out well-laid plans.

Erik Bedard HOU vs TEX Matt Garza
Chris Capuano LAD vs TB David Price
Bedard is generally a good source of Ks, even if his wins are few and far between. Facing Texas, all you can hope for is QS and some strikeouts, although he has been stingy with the earned runs of late. Capuano continues to surprise me. He has a bad match up here, facing off against Price, but the Dodgers have really turned the season around (thanks to my Puig), and so long as he limits the baserunners, he has a good shot to give you nice production.
Roberto Hernandez TB @ LAD Zack Greinke
Ubaldo Jiminez CLE vs LAA C.J. Wilson
Andre Rienzo CHW vs MIN Mike Pelfrey
Tyson Ross SD @ CIN Tony Cingrani
Of these 4 SPs, I think I could toss all their names in a hat and would not be upset with whichever name came out. I really like the two youngsters, Rienzo and Ross. While both are pitching out of their minds, and I do expect a regression to come at some point, I would certainly take a flier on one or both for Saturday. Jiminez is pitching well, and with Cleveland just having been swept by the Tigers, there will be added incentive to get the Tribe back on the winning track. Hernandez is prolly my least favorite of the bunch, but pitching for Tampa Bay is a good thing these days, although as noted above, the Dodgers are no push over any more.

Henderson Alvarez MIA @ ATL Mike Minor
Joe Kelly StL vs CHC Edwin Jackson
Alvarez is someone that should be an add in every league, dynasty, keeper, or redraft. Why he is so underowned is a puzzler to me. I have been adding him whereever he is available this past week. Sure, Atlanta is hot, and I made a wise decision going in heavy on Minor this March during my drafts, but Alvarez is not someone to sneeze at. Go on, add him if you can. Kelly continues the Cardinals' trend of providing great rotation options for us fantasy owners. Even though I like Edwin Jackson, and I know that this match up is the continuation of a seriious rivalry, I still like Kelly better than his opponent from the Windy City. If only he could harness his control.
