Another year, another season of Fiers defying the peripherals. A year after posting a 3.56 ERA and 4.75 FIP, he now has a 3.46 ERA and 4.78 FIP. He also has just 102 strikeouts in 153.1 innings, but perhaps this is another Wade Miley situation. The 34-year-old hadn't allowed more than three earned runs in a single start since April 20 until the imposing Astros tagged him for five on August 15.

Fiers is getting the job done this season with a 1.12 WHIP and an ERA well below 4.00. With that has come plenty of wins, but there aren't enough strikeouts to put him in the top 50 fantasy starters.
