Two-Start Pitcher Lookahead: Week 8 (2022 Fantasy Baseball)

May 21, 2022
Jakob Junis

Getting a leg up on the competition in any way possible is vital to success in fantasy baseball leagues. Planning ahead and playing the waiver wire well are two of the most effective ways to do that. With the “Two-Start Pitcher Lookahead”, the goal is to peer into the future two weeks and point out those lesser-owned (under 70%) starting pitchers that should be taking the mound twice for their clubs.

If the room is available on your fantasy roster to grab and wait a week on one of these starters, particularly the first few, it could pay off. Why wait around for the bidding war to start immediately before their two-start week? Get ahead of things now.

Keep in mind here that early in the season with any rotation situations still in flux, things can change in a hurry. The dozen hurlers below, with the way things stand at the time of writing, should be in line to get that coveted two-start week down the road.
