Lower Priced Streamer Starting Pitchers to Target on 4-7-18 (In Order):
USA TODAY Sports
- Andrew Triggs (SP A’s) had a great 1st start vs the Rangers and is facing a team with a .184 batting average vs Triggs. He opposes JC Ramirez so Triggs has a good shot at a win.
- Vincent Velasquez (SP Phillies) is a risky start anytime but he is facing the Marlins. Nick Pivetta just dominated the Marlins. It’s worth the early risk in daily fantasy leagues but I wouldn’t make the same play in Fan Duel or Draft Kings tournaments.
The best middle tier SP plays for tomorrow are Gerrit Cole at home vs the Padres and SP Bryan Mitchell. I still like Gio Gonzalez at home vs the Mets and SP Steven Matz even though the Mets are white hot right now. If Gonzalez can keep Cespedes under wraps, Gio has a great shot at a win.
Pitchers You SHOULD PICK UP Hitters against them on 4-7-18:
- Bryan Mitchell (SP Padres) at Astros (SP Gerrit Cole). Tomorrow should be a good day for Astros hitters.
- Zach Davies (SP Brewers) vs the Cubs (SP Yu Darvish) could have another rough outing like his 1st start where he allowed 6 earned runs.
- Chris Tillman at the Yankees (SP Sonny Gray) has been awful for the last year plus. Until Tillman shows he can turn it around, Tillman has zero fantasy value.
