Fantasy Baseball Update 8/29/16: Key Matchups Early This Week
Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Picks for Seasonal and Daily Leagues
August 29, 2016
It’s Monday, and that means we’ve got a fresh batch of series coming from around the MLB. With that said, let’s check out some of the notable waiver wire adds in seasonal and daily fantasy leagues to see who’s trending out there right now.
Kendall Graveman, SP, Oakland Athletics: Let’s kick things off on the mound today and check out Graven. He’s coming off a nice outing against the Indians, allowing just one run in 6.2 innings and a win.

Graveman holds 10 wins with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP this year in 149.2 innings pitched. He’s won three of his last four outings and will see the Astros tomorrow.
Scott Schebler, OF, Cincinnati Reds: This is a deeper-league add, but we’ll go ahead and throw it out there. Scheduler has a four-game hit streak going, during which he’s put up seven hits, six runs, three homers and seven RBI.
Schebler is hitting a wimpy .225 on the year, but does have seven homers and 25 RBI. Those in deep leagues who want to use him for the Angels series should grab him now.
Julio Urias, SP, Los Angeles Dodgers: Urias is on quite a roll right now. He’s won his last four games, and is coming off six innings of one-run ball against the Cubs.
Urias will stay in the rotation for now, but we don’t exactly know when his next start will be just yet. Still, you might want to scoop him up if you’re in need of a pitcher. Tentatively, we’ll see him September 3 against the Padres.
Ryan Schimpf, 2B/3B, San Diego Padres: Speaking of the Padres, they’ve got someone deep-leaguers should be taking a look at. Schimpfis on a four-game hit streak at the moment, and has delivered seven hits with five runs, two homers and four RBI in that span.
On the year, Schimpf is hitting .242 with 16 homers and 38 RBI. He’ll see Atlanta and then the Dodgers this week.
Joe Panik, 2B, San Francisco Giants: Let’s finish up in the bay with Panik. He’s hit in all but one of his last nine games, and in that frame has collected nine runs, three homers and 11 RBI.
Panik is hitting .251 on the year, and has also logged 10 homers, 52 RBI and five steals. He’s got Arizona early this week, which is a nice matchup for him.
