Happy Sunday everyone! Almost another week of baseball is gone but we still have a long way to go! Today brings us another really great slate for streaming. We have six starters that have a 7.0 rating or higher. For those in head-to-head leagues don’t hesitate to stream these players and try to win those categories!
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Hey, we have our streamer of the week! Tyler Anderson takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks who unlike last season seem to struggle against left-handed pitching. On top of that, you have Tyler Anderson who is just flat-out dominating lately. He is one of four pitchers to be ranked in the top ten in K-BB% and top five in SwStr% for the month of May. In his last three starts, he holds a 23.7K-BB% and 14.8 SwStr%. He has been a stud.
If Anderson is rostered you can turn your head towards Nick Pivetta. Pivetta has continued to pitch really well in May and in his last three starts, he has an above-average K-BB%, SIERA, and SwStr%. He takes on the Baltimore Orioles who have been towards the bottom in virtually every offensive category.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Your deep league option is another pitcher who has pitched well in Dane Dunning. In four starts in May Dunning holds a 4.88 ERA but it comes with a 3.47 xFIP, 3.93 FIP, and 24.3 K%. He does have the tendency to get hit from time to time but facing the offense of the Athletics I think the chances of that happening are low.
If Dane Dunning is gone Kyle Freeland would be a decent option facing off against the Washinton Nationals. He had a successful start against the Pirates and tends to pitch better outside of Coors Field…obviously.

This pick will be based on the NFBC Main Event (15-team league) and the pitcher must be under 15% rostered.
This week’s pick: Zach Davies @ PIT
In last week’s NFBC pick we went with Kyle Freeland as he took on the Pittsburgh Pirates. He didn’t go deep into the start but he did pitch 4.1 innings allowing just one run with six strikeouts. We will take it!
