The problem you’re having with your innings limit is everyone’s problem with just five weeks to go. The combative strategy against this is to use a familiar SP option for streaming, but this time, use it for RP. The concept is sound, and is an effective method for leagues without limits, kinda like doctors without borders, but with mitts and jerseys. So here’s how it goes: find the guys you’re streaming on your roster for SP, but instead, find an effective middle reliever or two or three. Get greedy, as they help in groups, kinda like the non-anime version of Voltron. These RP stream guys don’t have to be elite names, as most of them are going to be owned already, but if they aren’t, lets start there. You wanna focus on guys that have a K-rate above 10, which cuts the available guys you want in half. Next, pay attention to their opponent and their teams record… both important. Guys on contenders get used more frequently in better situations. Lastly, and this is important, as soon as they pitch, dump them and pick up a guy who hasn’t pitched that day or the day before to maximize your usable stats. I don’t care how well they did in the game you streamed them in. He pitched? Now he’s is gone. Forget about em. Pretty simple. No? I’ll draw it in crayon, but put on this helmet so we don’t have any liability issues. (If you pick the right guys that is.) Stick around for some pretty charts and tidbits of fantasy goodness…
- I love late season surges, and over the last 30 days, Hector Rondon has been super effective. He has 10 saves, an allowed 1 ER, and has looked solid for the youthful looking Cubs. Could be a cheap in-house option if the Cubs don’t bring in a veteran next year, but his stock is definitely rising.
- I know the Phillies fans are sick of their team and hate the age factor, but their bullpen has some really young bright spots who have started to show out again this past fortnight. Jake Diekman and the dreamboat known as Ken Giles are just K mongers. Both posting K-rates north 13 during that span.
- I came into the year pumping Nick Vincent as a guy to watch and, unfortunately, an injury got to him. But now he’s back to let you know he can really hold em down. Awful Dirty Dancing reference, but guess what, me no care. Vincent, since his return, has allowed zero earned runs a neat 9 K/9 rate and 5 Holds for a team lacking Hold chances.
