Fantasy Baseball: 5 Pitchers to Stream in Week 21
Kevin Gausman, Atlanta Braves
A string of three solid appearances with the new club has strengthened his case for relevance. Gausman sports a 2.85 ERA and 3.14 fielding independent pitching (FIP) across his first 19 innings as a Brave, and the righty continues to chisel away at the control issues that left him with a disappointing 4.48 ERA across 186 frames in 2017.
Gausman's name should remain on the lips of starter-needy fantasy owners in Week 21, as the 27-year-old draws a favorable two-start slate. Of course, one jumps at the chance to pick on the Marlins, who boast a .104 team isolated slugging (ISO) against righties over the last month, by far the worst in the majors over that time. Pittsburgh's .159 mark is less dire but still decidedly below average, giving Gausman a nice runway to a productive week.
