• Danny Duffy, Royals -- There's an argument to be made that Duffy is more than just a stream option in deeper leagues. Take away starts against the Angels and Astros in which he gave up 10 runs in 10 innings, and he has allowed just two runs in 23 innings as a starter. Of course, we can't just pretend those starts didn't happen, but he has been a strong positive for his owners four of his six times out. If you're in a deep league in need of some help in your rotation, think about kicking the tires on Duffy his next few turns. Regardless of your league size, however, he makes a solid stream play this weekend. The Yankees, whom he will oppose on Saturday, have been just average on offense this year, posting a wOBA (.311) and a weighted runs created plus (93) that rank in the bottom half of the league.
