Week 5 Two Start Pitchers

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in 2011 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers | 0 comments

Are you two-start pitcher streaming? If not, you’re likely missing out on a great opportunity to increase your weekly strikeout total, win total, log more innings pitched, and potentially lower your team ERA and WHIP in head to head leagues that allow daily lineup changes. Some leagues don’t allow such activity by limiting the number of player adds you can make each week. However, if you can find a loophole in your league settings and add/drop pitchers all season long – you’re going to have a great chance to win the whole thing come September! For the fourth consecutive season, we will be tracking two start pitchers to make sure you always win your pitching categories. That way, if you’re still waiting for Zack Greinke to return from the DL (like we are – until this week) – you...

Jonathan Papelbon fantasy baseball Editor’s Note: The Fantasy Baseball King normally digs into our mailbag and provides some of the best fantasy baseball advice online each Wednesday.

A few years ago, we put together some cheat sheets each week that included rankings at each position of the top hitter over the past 7 days, 30 days, and full season. The idea was that each reader could get an idea of who was hot at each position every week in comparison to who the best was all season… and then they could make their lineup adjustments accordingly. Well, after looking over that cheat sheet… we realized that some things about it were useful… and other parts, not so much. So, after some thoughtful consideration, we’ve put together a hitter cheat sheet for fantasy baseball 2011 – week 4.
