MLB Two Start Pitchers - Week 5 (May 1st-7th)

Time to get ready for Week 5 by taking a peek at the two-start pitchers. It's very top heavy this week with quite a few aces taking the mound twice. However, there are still plenty of pitchers who should be available to stream and give your team an extra start or two and lead your team to victory.

Note - For the streaming options, I have them in the order that I would personally pick them up. These are players that are likely owned in less than 50% of 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.



James Paxton is making a lot of fantasy owners very, very happy this season.
