Streaming Pitcher Rankings

Fantasy Baseball: September 25th - October 1st

What are pitching streamers?
Streaming pitchers is a strategy where fantasy owners target short-term rentals on the waiver wire that will provide the a boost in production for a given week. By targeting matchups and pitchers who have more than one start in a week, fantasy owners can improve their weekly or daily output from the starting pitcher position.
