Fantasy Baseball Streaming Starters: Week 5
Jon Impemba highlights all of the top targets on the mound to stream for Week 5 of the MLB and fantasy baseball seasons.
Joe Musgrove SP, PIT– Musgrove was a popular sleeper candidate heading into the season and he has done nothing to make people think those predictions weren’t right on the money as he has a sparking 0.81 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 21 strike outs over 22.1 innings to begin the season. He has a two-start week coming up with a home start against the Diamondbacks and a road start against the Dodgers coming up. He is owned in 80-percent of 12-team standard leagues, so I expect that ownership to be a little bit lower in 10-team leagues. If he is at all on the waiver wire in any format he must be added.
Hyun-Jin Ryu SP, LAD – Ryu came off the IL on Saturday and pitched pretty well given the circumstances as he allowed two runs on six hits while striking out nine over 5.2 innings against the Brewers. His ownership took a slight dip while on the IL in 12-team leagues as he sits at just 73-percent. His next start will be on the road against the Cubs who are again underwhelming...
