MLB Two Start Pitchers - Week 3 (Apr 17-23)

It's time to hunker down. Casual fantasy baseball fans may already be losing interest (I hate those people!), so this is where you can start to make your move on the league. What better way to start preparing for Week 3, than to identify the pitchers taking the hill twice? Get to it!!!

Note - For the streaming options, I have them in the order that I would personally pick them up. These are players that are owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues and may be available in yours.


Best of the Best: These are guys that if you have on your team, consider yourself blessed.
I Would Play 'Em: Players that unless you only start a handful of SPs, should be in your lineup.
Day"Stream" Believer: Good options to pick up and plug in your lineup this week.
Puff Puff Pass: Don't let these guys get their spit on your blunt. Leave them on the wire.
