2015 Fantasy Baseball – Underperforming Players
It can be a tough decision to sit a pitcher for a start or make a position player ride the pine for a stretch of games. The even harder decision comes when a player is slumping so bad that another guy on the waiver wire might help your team more. Benching and dropping players is just part of the game and we have some advice as to what you should do with certain players.
Stephen Strasburg, Wsh SP
Fantasy owners need to consider benching Strasburg for his next couple starts, if he’s not riding the pine already. The former No. 1 overall pick in 2009 has been terribly inconsistent this season and now carries a 6.50 earned run average to go with a 3-5 record.
