Fantasy Baseball Week 10: Advice on two-start SPs, seven-game teams, more

You know the drill – when one fantasy baseball week ends another begins, and whether you’re in a daily roto league or a weekly head-to-head game, now is the perfect time to gear up for the next seven days to prepare . Let’s take a look at the autostarts and upside streams among two-start SPs for Week 10 before looking at a couple of seven-game plan hitters you might want to target.

As always, these lists are subject to change, especially when inclement weather rears its ugly head.

Fantasy Baseball Week 10: Two Start SPs (Must Starts)

Sandy Alcantara, Miami @Philadelphia @NY Mets
Alex Manoah, Toronto against Baltimore against NY Yankees
Aaron Nola, Philadelphia against Miami @Washington
Logan Gilbert, Seattle against Minnesota against LA Angels
Logan Webb, San Francisco against Kansas City @Pittsburgh
Chris Bassitt, New York Mets against Milwaukee against Miami
Alex Wood, San Francisco against Kansas City @Pittsburgh
Nestor Cortes, NY Yankees against Tampa Bay @Toronto
Shane Bieber, Cleveland @Colorado @LA Dodgers

The aces speak for themselves, but next week some fringe aces are creeping into the picture. Logan Webb and Alex Wood have a double shot of juicy matchups. Nestor Cortes was just lit by the twins in a rare clunker so we’ll see how he recovers from adversity. In daily leagues you might consider using him in Toronto if he’s struggling in Tampa, but in weekly leagues he’s a must. Shane Bieber would normally be much higher up on that list, but trips to Coors Field and Dodger Stadium knock him over a few pegs.

Fantasy Baseball Week 10: Dual Start SPs (Sleepers and Streamers)

Zach Eflin, Philadelphia against Miami @Washington
Merrill Kelly, Arizona against Cincinnati @Minnesota
Josiah Gray, Washington against Atlanta against Philly
Ian Anderson, Atlanta @Washington @Chi. Boys
Cristian Javier, Houston @Texas v.Chi. sox
Alex Faedo, Detroit v.Chi. sox against Texas
Corey Kluber, Tampa Bay @ NY Yankees @Baltimore
Chris Flexen, Seattle against Minnesota against LA Angels

Zach Eflin was a bit of a WHIP roller coaster: sometimes sharp and sometimes out of control. However, he should post some solid numbers against Miami and Washington, and he’s listed in only 26 percent of Yahoo’s leagues. in the Merrill KellyIn his last start against the Reds, he looked like the preseason version of himself, throwing six innings of one-hit ball with five strikeouts. Now he gets another chance on Monday in Cincinnati. My favorite sleepers for this week: Josiah Gray, Alex Faedoand Chris Flexen. They may play for crappy teams, but everyone’s been solid lately. You can @ me if they let you down My Twitter could use some new activity!

Yusei Kikuchi, Toronto against Baltimore against NY Yankees
Blake Snell, San Diego @Chi. Boys @Colorado
Stephen Strassburg, Washington against Atlanta against Philly
Mitch Keller, Pittsburgh @St.Louis against San Francisco
Reid Detmers, LA Angels @LA Dodgers @Seattle
Johnny Cueto, Chi. sox @Detroit @houston
Adrian Houser, Milwaukee @NY Mets @cincinnati
Zach Davies, Arizona against Cincinnati against Minnesota
Dane Dunning, Texas against Houston @Detroit
Brady Singer, Kansas City @San Francisco @Oakland
Justin Steele, Chi. Boys against San Diego against Atlanta
Taylor Hearn, Texas against Houston @Detroit
Jordan Lyles, Baltimore @Toronto against Tampa Bay
Jared King, Oakland @Boston against Kansas City
Antonio Senzatela, Colorado v. Cleveland against San Diego
Mike Minor, Cincinnati @Arizona against Milwaukee
Kyle Bradish, Baltimore @Toronto against Tampa Bay
Packy Naughton, St Louis @LA Dodgers @Seattle
Rony Garcia, Detroit v.Chi. sox against Texas

Talk about a table full of misfit fantasy toys and over-the-hill veterans. I would single out some of these guys for individual streams, but I wouldn’t trust any of them for weekly lineup locks or anything less than 12-team leagues. Yusei Kikuchi should be fine against Baltimore, and Reid Detmers can probably get off to a good start in Seattle if we see the good version of him. The same applies Adrian Hauser in Cincinnati et al Zach Davis vs. Cincinnati (hey, Cincy stinks, OK?).

Fantasy Baseball Week 10: Meet Sleepers/Streamers

Cedric Mullins and Anthony Santander, OF, Baltimore

Mullins and Santander haven’t been great in recent weeks, but they have a full seven-game slate in Week 10 and will face multiple pitchers battling lefties and switch hitters. Mullins should be considered buy-low in the trading market and Santander could be worth grabbing off the wire (34 percent list).

Santiago Espinal, 2B/3B, Toronto

We’ll talk more about Espinal in our waiver column next week, but don’t be surprised if he’s up over 50 per cent in the squad by then (he’s currently at 46 per cent). The 27-year-old infielder started Saturday at .421 with three homers and 10 RBIs in June.

Nathaniel Lowe, 1B, Texas

Lowe has been raking quietly since the calendar switched to June and started Saturday with a .353 average and four HRs. He’s hitting out a lot and not offering much in terms of RBIs since he plays for Rangers, but might be worth snagging for his upcoming seven-game week.
