Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitcher Lookahead: Week 8 (May 13 – 19)

Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitcher Lookahead: Week 8 (May 13 – 19)

Every fantasy baseball manager should regularly look to get a leg up on the competition. Planning ahead and playing the waiver wire well are two of the most effective ways. With the “Two-Start Pitcher Lookahead,” the goal is to peer into the future to point out some lesser-rostered (under 60%) starting pitchers who should be taking the mound twice for their clubs in a couple of weeks.

If there is room on your fantasy roster, it often pays off to stash one of these starters, particularly the first few in the rankings below. Why wait for the bidding war to start immediately before their two-start week? Get out in front of things now.

Keep in mind that situations can change quickly with MLB rotations. Given the way things stand at the time of writing, the collection of hurlers below should be in line to get that coveted two-start week down the road.
