A.L. weekly fantasy planner
Now that Week 3 is in the books, you should have a pretty good idea of where you stand with regard to your lineup and bench, but I still think that it's a bit too early to make wholesale changes to your team. With that said, it has been an interesting season already. Players who were expected to be solid are having a rough time, and some players who were drafted late are having solid seasons so far. What does this mean for you, the fantasy owner? Be patient ... your studs will start performing to their lofty expectations soon, and if those players that you drafted late continue to play well, you could be in for a rise in the standings.
You have all heard the saying, "two is better than one," right? There could not have been a truer statement spoken as the two-start pitchers below are excellent options and are must-starts this week.
The following pitchers are decent options and while you should get a solid game out of them, there is a chance they could burn you during one of their outings.
Disregard what I said earlier about "two is better than one," in this case, erase that quote from your brain-housing group for the moment. You would be better off with one solid pitcher, than these unfulfilling options:
Three weeks of a long and arduous 162-game season are complete. While wholesale changes to your roster are not recommended, you may need to pick up a player from the waiver wire due to injuries or poor play from one of your starters. With that said, just because a player is on the wire, does not mean that he cannot produce. The players below are available in over 80 percent of Yahoo! leagues and might also be available on the wire in your league. Keep in mind, these players may not be able to keep up this pace for the duration of the season, but they will be a solid replacement player.
