Lookin’ FAAB? Testing the Limits of Streaming Two-Start Pitchers

With less than a week's worth of games having been played, it's more than a little too soon to be drawing conclusions about our fantasy teams based on their results. We may be tempted to take comfort in owning Mitch Haniger, Matt Davidson or Tyler Skaggs, all of whom are off to surprisingly good starts, or be bummed out that we are getting next to nothing out of Yu Darvish, Paul Goldschmidt or Willson Contreras. These players' histories strongly suggest that we not get too confident or distraught based on their tiny samples…

A search back through articles from many sites yielded some interesting names that were popular on the waiver wire in early April.

Fantasy Dilemma: What To Do With Starling Marte or Madison Bumgarner?

If you have Pittsburgh Pirates' outfielder Starling Marte or lefty starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner on your roster, take a depth breath and seriously consider your options before you panic.  Both of them have completely different circumstances.  Marte has been suspended for 80 games due to him testing positive for PEDs.  No leagues have spots to stash suspended players, so your options are to clog up your roster with Marte, try to deal him or simply cut him.  Bumgarner hurt his shoulder in a dirt bike accident and their is…
