Fantasy Impact:

Kershaw is no stranger to pitching in meaningful games during the month of October. However, the lack of dominant success he has had on baseball's biggest stage has been an ongoing storyline for years now. Most recently, Kershaw gave up four runs in five innings in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Braves. For his postseason career the three-time Cy Young award winner has a 4.31 ERA in 177 1/3 innings. A dominant couple of starts during the World Series could help quiet a lot of his haters.
