Fantasy baseball forecaster for Week 3: April 16-22
Elite Womens Lauri Markkanen Jersey
Fantasy baseball’s Week 3 gets off to an unusually early start due to Patriot’s Day in Boston. As is the annual tradition, the Boston Red Sox game has an 11:05 a.m. ET scheduled first pitch on Monday, so make sure to set your lineups early, whether you play in a league with weekly or daily transactions. In a rare, bizarre scheduling twist, the Red Sox then hit the road for the West Coast, playing a game in Anaheim, California, at 10:07 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
Ivan Nova (R), 14 percent, Pittsburgh Pirates at Miami Marlins: Conventional wisdom warns against chasing wins. But what if you need wins? Despite a road affair, the Pirates will likely be favored against the Marlins, with Nova the beneficiary. He’s protected by one of the best pitching venues in the league. So long as Nova doesn’t let Justin Bour beat him, he’ll keep the Bucs in the game.
Greg Holland isn’t ready to take over closing duties in St. Louis yet, but his second outing was more promising than his first.

He’s just got to get right to be able to start back on baseball activities, and then getting into and playing in games and coming out and getting through that, Boone said. When that is, I’d be guessing right now.
Game Dennis Smith Jersey Ellsbury, who lost the starting center-field job to Aaron Hicks last season, is guaranteed $21,142,857 annually through 2020 as part of a $153 million, seven-year contract that includes a $21 million team option for 2021 with a $5 million buyout.
The affable but grizzled general manager Thursday offered another reminder there is a new guy in charge and his attachments are few. Trading Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers was surprising, but not shocking, given JPP’s work on the field and the dent he put in the team’s finances.
