Week Six streaming options have a ton of potential. Noah Syndergaard gets his first shot in the big leagues. Syndergaard is a highly touted prospect with a ton of upside that some have been patiently awaiting his arrival. It also features a strong two start option and three other widely available options that can help your team this week.
Alex Colome – Tampa Bay Rays
(Monday vs New York Yankees)
Alex Colome has been impressive since joining the rotation with the Rays. He is 2-0 in his first two starts, both road wins. He won at Baltimore and at Boston, against some impressive line ups. This matchup will be his first home start. He faces a Yankee lineup that has been struggling on the road as of late and can strike out. Colome has a chance to stay in this rotation with the unfortunate news that Alex Cobb will have to have tommy john and will miss the entire season. Colome is also a two start pitcher this week who gets a tasty matchup against the Minnesota Twins. He should be solid in both outings.
Noah Syndergaard – New York Mets
(Tuesday at Chicago Cubs)
Noah Syndergaard will be making his first start of the season on Tuesday. He is a highly touted prospect that is loaded with potential. He will be taking the rotation spot vacated by Dylan Gee, who went on the DL. If Syndergaard pitches well, the Mets will likely be forced to figure out a way to keep him in the rotation. Taking a pitcher for their first start in the majors is risky proposition. Syndergard has the skill to succeed in his first outing, especially against the free swinging Cubs. In AAA, Syndergaard had an era under two with 34 strikeouts in 29 and ⅔ innings. Even if you want to wait to see a start or two before you place him in your lineup, he is worth a pick up in all formats.

James Paxton – Seattle Mariners
(Tuesday vs San Diego Padres)
James Paxton has started to get it rolling as of late. His last three starts he has found his groove. He has allowed two earned runs or less in those starts racking up 18 strikeouts. He faces a Padre team that has the ability to score runs but also is prone to striking out and showing poor plate discipline. Paxton should pitch well in this home start and produce strong fantasy numbers.
Vance Worley – Pittsburgh Pirates
(Thursday at Philadelphia Phillies)
Vance Worley has been inconsistent this season but this matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies provides a ton of potential. The Phillies lineup is less than terrifying and provide a ton of potential. At his best Worley can be a guy that gets five to six strikeouts with the low walk total that should allow two runs or less. He should be able to do that in this matchup.
Chase Anderson – Arizona Diamondbacks
(Sunday at Philadelphia Phillies)
Chase Anderson has been impressive thus far season. He has produced at the Los Angeles Dodgers and in a home start against a Padre lineup that can produce a ton of runs in a park that encourages it. In this start, he faces a Phillies team that is awful. Anderson has strikeout upside like the seven he produced against the Dodgers but 4 to 5 is a safe bet for this start with the potential for more.
