Streamers Daily Fantasy Baseball – Waiver Over Saturday 08/28
Welcome to another edition of our daily fantasy baseball streamers! Do you play in leagues with daily moves and looking to strengthen those rosters? At RotoBaller, we’re here for you and all of your streaming needs. Whether you’re just trying to grab that elusive class win or trying to make up for Jameson Taillon’s horrific start on Thursday, we can help. Every day, RotoBaller will provide you with some of the best streaming options to consider in the daily shallow and deep fantasy baseball leagues. Streaming hitters and pitchers to tap into games are important in helping you win your league.
Knowing your league is important if you are going to broadcast. I’m not just talking about the teams your teammates are rooting for. I’m talking about whether strikeouts count against you for hitters or whether the field stats are included. Most importantly, you need to know how many trades you have per week. You don’t want to explode your allowance in a few days. You can also use these recommendations to help you build your DFS ranges. This article will use the registered percentages and eligibility for ESPN league positions.
We have eight pitchers who are registered in over 90% of ESPN leagues. Six others are held in more than half of the leagues. That leaves us with a choice of over half of today’s pitchers. Our three waivers helped yesterday. Let’s find these gems!

8/28 Batting Banners – Shallow Leagues
Nick Solak (2B / OF, RHB, TEX) – 46.3% enrolled
Match: vs. HOU LHP Framber Valdez
It looks like the time spent at AAA Round Rock has done Solak some good. He’s been leading a five-game hitting streak since spending a month on the farm. Solak is hitting .381 in that span with one homer, one steal, four runs scored and three RBIs. Framber presents a tough clash, but it’s also different to go over six innings and he’s not totally untouchable. I’m good with Solak in a weak position tonight.
Brandon Nimmo (OF, LHB, NYM) – 43.2% enrolled
Match: vs. WAS LHP Sean Nolin
The left-left clash here doesn’t bother me, especially as Nimmo hit a bomb three times off Nolin earlier this month. Nimmo hits .458 with a home run, steal and three runs scored in the last week. He gives the Mets a good potential batting start in a game in which they could score a lot of points.
Daulton Varsho (C / OF, LHB, ARI) – 31.2% enrolled
Match: at PHI RHP Kyle Gibson
Varsho has three home runs, six RBIs and five runs scored in the final week of action. Something to note is that Arizona started it in every game of this period. He was safely held by Nola last night, but it will happen every now and then. Gibson has enjoyed moderate success since being traded to the Phillies, but Arizona beat him on August 17. Varsho had a hit and a point in this game. I’ll take this!
Patrick Sagesse (1B / 3B / OF, RHB, CHC) – 30.1% enrolled
Match: at CWS RHP Lance Lynn
Wisdom has scored three home runs in the last three games and five in the last seven with 11 RBIs in that span. While he probably isn’t abusing Lynn like he did with Dallas Keuchel last night, Wisdom seems stuck right now and can fill a lot of the holes with the eligibility for the job.
Hitter Streamers for 08/28 – Deeper Leagues
Connor Joe (DE, MD, COL) – 19.3% enrolled
Match: at LAD LHP David Price
Joe picked up a hit and a point in the win over the Dodgers last night and is probably my favorite Rockies player tonight against the shadow of former Cy Young winner David Price. Joe probably won’t post huge numbers, but the Rockies have been doing much better overall on the road for about a month. Joe could provide one or two more runs and has eight RBIs in the last eight games.
Jake Meyers (OF, RHB, HOU) – 10.5% enrolled
Match: at TEX LHP Kolby Allard
Even though Kyle Tucker is back in training, the Astros have kept the Meyers punchy. He is hitting .393 with a homerun, nine RBIs and four RBIs last week. Those of you who pounced on Meyers got a pair of RBIs for your foresight. Allard may be the weakest pitcher on the entire list, so expect more good things from Meyers tonight.
Bobby Dalbec (1B, RHB, BOS) – 9.6% enrolled
Match: at CLE RHP Cal Quantrill
Dalbec has two multi-homer games in the dozen he has played. He has a modest three-game hitting streak, but understand that Dalbec is still an all-or-nothing type player. However, it could all be multiple circuits. He has five in the past two weeks and played seven points on Thursday night. There is potential here.
Brandon Marsh (OF, RHB, LAA) – 6.5% enrolled
Match: vs SD LHP Ryan Weathers
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last couple of years or so, you know how much of a valued prospect Marsh is. His major league debut left a lot to be desired, but Marsh is starting to get the hang of it. He’s hitting .448 with a homerun, five runs scored and an incredible 10 RBIs in the last eight games! At this point, Marsh is best known for his speed, but that RBI total is what really interests me. The eight hits in the last four games don’t hurt either.
Streamers Pitcher for 08/28 – Shallow Leagues
Tyler Anderson (LHP, SEA) – 21.8% enrolled
Match: vs. Kansas City
Anderson has a 3.00 ERA in five starts since the Mariners got him on the trade deadline. However, three of those five starts were against the Rangers. Still, he’s held up against Houston and the Yankees in the other starts, so we might be on to something here. The problem with Anderson is he doesn’t get a lot of strikeouts – he’s only 19 in 27 innings with Seattle – but he’ll help your ratios and should give us a shot at winning.
Adrian Houser (RHP, MIL) – 17.9% enrolled
Match: in minnesota
The Twins scored just two points over Eric Lauer last night, so while he didn’t take the win, the logic was good. Houser has been brilliant lately. He’s allowed just one run in his last 16.1 innings pitched. Like Anderson, strikeouts aren’t a strong suit. Houser has fanned just ten batters over those 16.1 innings. Still, he could be a huge boost for our ERA and should help the WHIP. That must be enough tonight. There isn’t much potential for a strikeout on waivers.
Streamers Pitcher for 08/28 – Deeper Leagues
Steven Brault (LHP, PIT) – 3.6% enrolled
Match: against Saint-Louis
Brault looked like a different pitcher between this year and last year. He had a 5.16 ERA in 25 games in 2019. His 15-game ERA in the past two years is 3.08. Brault has been spectacular in his four starts this year, allowing just four runs in 18.2 innings pitched. Two of those starts were against that same Cardinals team. Like our other streamers, his strikeouts are nothing to write home about. The offense backing him is also putrid, so your chances of winning (especially with Pirate Slayer Adam Wainwright on the other side) are nil. Brault is strictly to help your ratios and maybe get lucky with strikeouts.
