Top 10 Starting & Relief Pitchers From Last Week (8/6/18 – 8/12/18)

The fantasy landscape can change drastically over the course of a week and especially with any league (especially deeper ones) it can be difficult to keep track of every performance worth noting.

We’ve done that work for you. Whether it’s hot bats to pick up or measuring the rising stock of players already owned, this is the rundown. Here’s a look at standouts over the past week by position.

 

Starting Pitcher

 

1. Trevor Bauer – CLE – RHP (92%)

2 W, 0.73 ERA, 0.65 WHIP, 19 K / 12.1 IP

Rodriguez has been a top 10 SP over the past month with 2 W, 1.35 ERA, 0.66 WHIP with 28 K in 33.1 IP. Rodriguez is above just a streaming option and should be owned in all leagues.
