MLB Two Start Pitchers - Week 2

Week one of the fantasy baseball season is now past the halfway point and it's time to start preparing for Week 2. I'm here to help you identify the pitchers who will likely be taking the hill twice next week. If you're in a points league, these guys can double up the potential points you earn, if you play them over a starter with only one start. If you are in a more standard, roto league, they can help you rack up more strikeouts and give you extra opportunities for wins. I have seperated them into four groups to help make your decision easier as to whether you should look to play them in Week 2. 

Note - For the streaming options, I have them in the order I would personally pick them up. These are players that are owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues and may be available in your league.


Best of the Best: These are guys that if you have on your team, consider yourself blessed.
I Would Play 'Em: Players that unless you only start a handful of SPs, should be in your lineup.
Day"Stream" Believer: Good options to pick up and plug in your lineup this week.
Puff Puff Pass: Don't let these guys get their spit on your blunt. Leave them on the wire.
