CBS's Chris Towers still has him ranked #35 SP in ROTO

Stuff like this makes me wonder where to apply for fantasy analyst

 

moved him up to #33 :wacko:

 

I use those CBS rankings often, because they constantly adjust them, but sometimes the rankings defy reason.

Towers has Gausman ahead of Stroman, Severino, Sanchez, Nola, E-Rod, Manaea, Rich Hill....  I like Gausman's raw ability, but I'd gladly cut him for all those guys. 

 

on the other hand, Scott White and Heath have Gausman at 78, and 60, respectively-- which seems much more reasonable. 

 

I think Chris' rankings are solid for the most part though... although I strongly disagree with ranking Villar ahead of Sano at 3B, too.

It WAS a QS, and 5 Ks

Ehhhh...

I tried dropping him, but was out-FAABed by someone so he's still on my team.

 

But you look at his schedule, and when are you really gonna use him besides the Pirates? I don't want anything to do with him vs HOU/NYY

 

@Hou

NYY

PIT

@NYY

He has to throw his splitter close to 50% of the time like Matt Shoemaker started doing last season.  If he did that he probably wouldn't be horrible.

He is still using the old school strategy of using the fastball to set up his secondary pitches (pitch?).  That doesn't work these days unless a pitcher throws 95.

I just checked and yeah he does sit at 95.

In that case I take back what I said.  He blows.
