SP Streamers Under 20% Owned: Week 10

This week is a tough one. I had to dig really deep to find some guys that I thought have at least a shot at a QS. I ended up selecting three guys that are not only under 20% owned, but all three are under 10% owned. The matchups out there are rough this week so choose wisely if you have to stream. Let’s check out who I picked.
- Under 20% Owned according to NFBC
Consider The Following
Brent Suter @ PHI (10% Owned)
At this point we all pretty much know that Brent Suter is a matchup dependent streamer. He has cemented himself in the Streamer Club with guys like Chad Kuhl and Matt Boyd. His vFA so far this year is up to a whopping 87.5 but he still has somehow registered a 7.67 K/9. His xFIP (3.91) is a little better than his ERA (4.55) and I expect that end of year number to be hovering around 4 which would make him a decent streamer in 2018. PHI is towards the bottom of the league hitting just .231 against LHP which makes Suter an intriguing streaming option.
Imagine a Streamer Club package that resembles this?
Dennis Santana @ PIT (3% Owned)
Initially called up to pitch in a long relief role, Santana is being thrown into the fire this week and starting his first Major League game. The former Shortstop struggled in his first appearance last week at COL but still provides some sneaky fantasy value due to the high strikeout totals he’s expected to put up. The number 9 prospect in the LAD system according to MLB.com, Santana sports an upper 90’s FB along with a plus SL which may result in more long-term success out of the bullpen. A QS is not beyond the realms of possibility and considering the weak options out there for this week I would give Santana a try.
Brad Keller @ OAK (1% Owned)
This is the most interesting pick out of the litter. Hear me out here. Brad Keller is having a pretty good rookie season so far (25.1 IP, 2.13 ERA). Making his first start of the season last week, Keller went 3 IP, 1 ER, 3 Ks against a very good MIN lineup. While the Royals are in the process of stretching him out, he has two starts this week so by he sees OAK he should be able to go five or six innings. He may not have the best K:BB (16:8) but the Rule 5 pick has done a great job inducing groundballs (61.5 GB%) and keeping the ball inside the park (0.36 HR/9). It may be a shot in the dark but I suggest you keep a close eye on Brad Keller this week. You never know.
