Finding the perfect pitcher to add to your Fantasy baseball team can be the difference between winning your league or going home with nothing. And before you determine which low-owned pitchers you should target, and which you should avoid, heading into Week 21, you absolutely need to see what Fantasy analyst Jeff Zimmerman has to say.
Zimmerman has written at FanGraphs, Hardball Times, RotoWire, ESPN, Baseball America, and Beyond the Boxscore. He has won several FSTA awards including Best Baseball Series and Football Writer of the Year. He's participated in Tout Wars and won it twice (15-mixed auction and 12-team H2H). Along with Tanner Bell, he just published the first edition of "The Process", a complete guide for running your own Fantasy baseball start-to-finish. If there's anybody who knows what it takes to win a league, it's him.
Now, he's done an in-depth analysis of the top pitchers who are widely available entering Week 21. One we'll give away: Zimmerman is high on Rangers stater Kolby Allard, who's owned in just 9 percent of leagues, as an option in deeper leagues.
"Allard, who was obtained at the trade deadline from Atlanta, made his 2019 Major League debut this last week going four innings, striking out seven batters, and allowing two runs," Zimmerman said. "The Rangers are likely to keep running him out every five days to evaluate his talent ... Owners in 15-team or deeper leagues should keep him on their radar and if he gets a decent matchup, don't be afraid to start him.
Zimmerman has also identified which pitchers you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad. Anyone who adds these player could hit it BIG.
