Some Fantasy owners like to grab every two-start pitcher they can, looking to beat their opponent with quantity rather than quality. Others are more selective, preferring a better-safe-than-sorry approach.

This week offers the best of both worlds. Not only is there no shortage of two-start options, but I can't remember another time when I was so eager to go so deep.

Now, this list may shrink over the next couple days because of the trade deadline. Sonny Gray and Yu Darvish are two of the biggest names on the trade block right now, and each could have his first start pushed back whether he's traded or not. Of course, each is also the type of pitcher you start in a one-start week anyway.

Gio Gonzalez's two-start status is up in the air since the Nationals will have to insert an extra starter mid-week to account for an earlier doubleheader, but they could easily skip Erick Fedde after that (and probably should given the way Sunday's start went). The Braves have yet to announce a starter for Tuesday's game, but beat writers have speculated Lucas Sims for days. I've included him here.

But the bottom line is you'll have no shortage of competent choices this week -- and so will your opponent. You may need to be a little more aggressive, then, pursuing sleepers on the waiver wire such as Patrick Corbin, who has a 2.83 ERA over his last eight starts, and Ian Kennedy, who has a 3.26 ERA over his last eight.

In points leagues, I think you could justify using any of the top 25 or even 28 here, and the top 23 are in play in all formats.
