This week there are fewer two start pitching options than we've seen over the past several scoring periods. Where this hurts is in the middle tier, since we still have a bushelful of top tier guys to roster, including a couple of new comers to the rarefied air in Tier One.
Rolling into week 6, and we now beginning to see some real patterns developing. Makes the three tiers below more fun to put together, if also more challenging.
For those of you still fighting for a championship, the good news is that the pitching options for this upcoming week are quite appealing. The other good news is that I don't have any bad news to report. So, let's see who you should be snapping up off the wire to push you over the edge to fantasy glory.
As the season rolls though August, it's time to prepare for the stretch run if you are in contention for your league title. Pick up as many fantasy points as you can now, and position your team for the final showdown. With that in mind, let's take a look at those two start pitching options that can help you out this week.
Coming to you from the lovely Keweenaw Peninsula area of northern Michigan (aka the UP), here is this Saturday's installment of Two Start Pitchers for Week 18. Since I am on something of a deadline, having to wrap this up before brunch and then an afternoon wedding, let's just get to it.
Time again to pencil in your Head to Head starting pitchers, and while there are not as many as in past weeks, there are still enough options to populate a rotation. Not all are great options, I will grant you, but that's why you come to this site week after week. Here goes.
Another week, another set of two start pitchers to choose from. Many fine options this week, and we're back to in-league as opposed to inter-league play. Don't know how you feel about that part of modern baseball, but you need to adapt, with the move of Houston to the AL next season. Besides, how will St. Louis fans have an opportunity to boo Pujols without inter-league play? Anyhoo, on to the pitching options for this upcoming week.
As we wind up the first month of the season, Things are starting to get a bit less muddied with regard to which Starting Pitchers you want to target week in, week out. Obviously we are not going to have all the best SPs on our rosters for two start purposes, but if you have one or two from the top chart, you should feel pretty darned good about your team's chances to succeed this week. It's the second tier that provides the best value, however, and I will spend the most time on those hurlers this installment. The final chart is not too large, but be very wary of starting any of those guys.
