So what do you think?

You willing to start David Price right away after he missed two months with a sore elbow? Yeah? Even after his disaster of a rehab start Wednesday?

Such is the allure of the two-start week. Normally, I'd exercise more caution for a player returning from injury, especially when the absence is so lengthy and the diagnosis so vague. But recognizing the range of possible outcomes for this particular case, Price being an unquestioned ace when completely healthy, I'm inclined to double down, trusting him to deliver at least one quality start between the two and perhaps to shine in both.

At 15th in these rankings, he rounds out the must-start group, but Nos. 16-21 are all advisable choices as well. Tyler Anderson makes for an excellent sleeper at less than 50 percent ownership. His strikeouts are surging, he's mostly unaffected by Coors Field, and his second start is at San Diego.

If you're looking for volume any way you can get it, Anderson's teammate, Tyler Chatwood, is also a viable option, as are any of the four pitchers in between. There's a chance the Mets' Steven Matz and the Blue Jays' J.A. Happ both return from the DL Tuesday, which would line them up for two starts, but unlike Price, they're not so high-end that you should feel obligated to activate them in Fantasy.
