Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:20:09 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is a high-end fantasy option in all formats, but it is an incredibly daunting matchup against Arrieta ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) Wednesday. FantasyScore players should view Marte as a high-risk, high-reward play in contests.

Pirates | Starling Marte out vs. Brewers

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 12:31:00 -0700

FantasyScore players shouldn't view Harrison as anything more than a dice roll until he shows some consistency at the dish.
