The MLB season is filled with ups and downs, but the key to success is to find some gems to stream! Today we're going to stream a Rockies pitcher away from Coors and continue to ride a slugging Rays' first baseman!
When choosing my daily hitter streamers, I examine their platoon splits, lineup position, and pitching matchup. With pitchers, I account for the opposing lineup, team ballpark, and recent performance to help make my decision.
Each of my streamers will be rostered in between 0-40% of Yahoo leagues, with a mixed focus on both shallow and deeper formats. Today, I will be providing a streamer for each position, including two starting pitchers. Let’s take a look at the Tuesday slate and dig out some streamer gems to help you start off the week with a bang!Editor's Note: Love the strategy of season-long fantasy sports?

Hitter Streamers for 9/22 - Infielders
Nate Lowe (1B, LHB, TB) - 13% Rostered
Matchup: @ NYM RHP Seth Lugo
Lowe finds himself in this article once again, as he continues to see the ball well, going 12-for-36 (.333) with nine runs, four homers, and 11 RBI in his last 11 games. He faces Lugo, who just got rocked for six runs on eight hits in only 1.2 innings, so this is an exploitable matchup.
Ke'Bryan Hayes (3B, RHB, PIT) - 9% Rostered
Matchup: vs CHC LHP Jose Quintana
Hayes has been impressive since being called up, slashing .323/.391/.597 with 11 runs, three homers, eight RBI, and one stolen base. He's been a fixture in the two-hole, so he's in a prime position for production. Hayes has hit the ball hard, posting a 94.2 MPH average exit velocity. He goes up against Quintana, who hasn't pitched since August 30th.
Jedd Gyorko (1B/3B, RHB, MIL) - 3% Rostered
Matchup: @ CIN RHP Sonny Gray
Gyorko has been rock solid lately, going 7-for-26 (.269) with six walks, five runs, two homers, and five RBI in his last nine games. He's rotated between the fourth and sixth spot in the lineup during that span. Gyorko goes up against Gray, who has allowed 11 earned runs in his last two starts (four innings).
Josh Fuentes (1B, RHB, COL) - 1% Rostered
Matchup: @ SF LHP Drew Smyly
Fuentes has been swinging a hot bat of late, going 14-for-40 (.350) with eight runs, one homer, and eight RBI in his last ten games. He's been mashing lefties this season, slashing .333/.333/.667 against them, so he could take advantage of Smyly here.
Hitter Streamers for 9/22 - Outfielders
Jurickson Profar (2B/OF, SHB, SD) - 28% Rostered
Matchup: vs. LAA RHP Griffin Canning
Profar is a streaky hitter and right now he's rolling, going 11-for-26 (.423) with four runs, one homer, six RBI, and two steals in his last eight games. He goes up against Canning, who's been a major disappointment this season, posting a 4.29 ERA (4.55 FIP), 13.0 K-BB%, and 10.9 SwStr% (-2.9% from 2019).
Nick Solak (2B/3B/OF, RHB, TEX) - 28% Rostered
Matchup: @ ARZ LHP Caleb Smith
It looks like Solak is starting to get on a hot streak, as he's 5-for-8 (.625) with three runs, one RBI, and two steals in his last two games. He's slashed .333/.349/.367 against southpaws this season, so he has a good matchup against Smith, who's struggled through a difficult season dealing with COVID-19.
Corey Dickerson (OF, MIA, LHB) - 14% Rostered
Matchup: @ ATL N/A
We're not sure who's starting for the Braves yet, but that doesn't matter too much with the way Dickerson has been swinging the bat lately - he's gone 6-for-14 (.429) with four runs, one homer, three RBI, and one steal in his last four games.
Pitcher Streamer for 9/22
Kyle Freeland (CHW, LHP) - 34% Rostered
Matchup: @ SF
Like every Rockies pitcher, Freeland has been much better away from Coors Field, posting a 2.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP on the road, compared to a 4.46 ERA and 1.43 WHIP at home. He's pitched six innings in three consecutive starts, allowing six runs, walking seven, and striking out 15 during that span (18 innings). He should be able to turn in a quality start against the Giants here.
