Waiver Wire

Nick and T go over some guys that should be must adds in season long Fantasy Baseball leagues. With a guy like Kevin Kiermaier being out 6-to-8 weeks, someone out there could use one of the players mentioned in this segment. Cameron Maybin of the Detroit Tigers and Danny Valencia of the Oakland A’s headline the list. Others include Brandon Guyer, Trayce Thompson, Jonathan Villar, and Steve Pearce.

Going over must drops, they breakdown why Angel Pagan, Shawn Tolleson, and Ben Revere can be let go immediately.

Daily Fantasy Outlook

Teams to avoid include the Houston Astros, New York Mets, and St.Louis Cardinals as they face pretty tough pitching matchups all week.
