Featured Pros: Under-the-Radar Waiver Pickups
What one hitter should fantasy owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 20% of Leagues?
Denard Span is no one's idea of a sexy fantasy asset, but he's generally been a reliable three-category contributor (runs, batting average, and steals) over the years, and he's added double-digit home run totals in each of the last two seasons. He's trending toward another 10 HR/20 SB performance in 2018, and while Span's days as a .300 hitter are probably done, he's drawing walks at a career high rate. That, along with his role as Tampa's primary leadoff hitter, has allowed him to sustain above-average run production.

What one starting pitcher should fantasy owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 20% of Leagues?
Despite the fact that he's turning 45 (!) years old next week, Bartolo Colon has bounced back from an awful 2017 and made himself fantasy relevant once again. As usual with Colon, you're not going to get a ton of strikeouts, but the ageless wonder has posted a 2.82 ERA and 0.84 WHIP through seven starts. In the five seasons prior to last year, Colon produced playable ratios (3.57 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) and, astoundingly, ranked seventh among qualified starters in wins. He's a reliable streaming option at the very least, and worth rostering in plenty of formats.

What one hitter should fantasy owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 25% of Leagues?
With Kevin Kiermaier already banged up and aging vets Carlos Gomez and Denard Span struggling, Mallex Smith has a golden opportunity to seize a starting role in Tampa Bay. The outfielder has 34 stolen bases to his name in just 529 MLB plate appearances. While he's just 2-for-5 on theft attempts in the early going, Smith's speed and on-base ability make him a great waiver wire option for owners in need of SB.

What one starting pitcher should fantasy owners look into picking up that is owned in less than 25% of Leagues?
Nick Pivetta is off to a terrific start in 2018, with a 2.70 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through three appearances. He's struck out 19 batters and walked only one. Pivetta was both bad and unlucky last season as a rookie, which led to some ugly ratios. He's locating his curve ball better and throwing it more often, while essentially abandoning his lousy changeup.
