Fantasy Baseball: 5 Pitchers to Stream in Week 11

Fresh off a complete-game gem, Andrew Heaney lines up for a two-start week, including a matchup with an Oakland team that's been awful against lefties.

There are plenty of forgettable names in the bottom end of the 2018 ERA leaderboard -- the kinds of starters (Sal Romano, Jason Hammel, James Shields) no one in a standard league would dream of drafting, let along starting on a regular basis.

But what about those names who were relatively hot draft-day commodities? Several of 2018's worst ERA performers are pitchers who might have the name value that encouraged steadfast fantasy owners to activate them week in and week out, eager for regression to kick in. Have you been eating bad starts from Luis Castillo, Zack Godley, Jon Gray, and Masahiro Tanaka, assuming the inevitable great starts would outweigh the poor showings?

If that's the case, the headaches and bloated ratios might have you approaching a breaking point: you need to put in work to clean up your categories. The five widely available arms in this article aren't exactly fantasy stars -- heck, you'll find a couple of them at the bottom of the ERA standings -- but they've got strong matchups in Week 11, and they're out there for the taking on many waiver wires.
