As we head into the final weeks of the season, the time for waffling on roster moves is over. Any player sitting on your bench who isn’t an immediate asset should be dropped for a streamer or a hot bat.

Friday continues what has been an appealing fantasy pitching slate all week as once again the theme will be picking on teams with depleted lineups. Enjoying the platoon edge is the hitting mantra of the day.

Fantasy baseball daily notes - Pitcher and hitter rankings for Thursday

The final Thursday in August presents us with a 12-game docket. With four teams taking the day off on Wednesday, this is one of just a handful of times all season where we will go back-to-back days without a full slate

Older players constantly make news in major league baseball and, by extension, fantasy baseball, so today seems like a fine day to check up on the latest happenings in our world.

Monday's abbreviated slate received a boost with Sunday's Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins rainout in Fenway Park rescheduled for a 1:00 PM start. Still, it's a weak ledger for streaming pitchers. Along those lines, it's worth noting this is a lighter than usual week in terms of overall games, so if something enticing is available in your league, it's best to take advantage to avoid the scramble at the end of the week.

Wednesday offers another full day of baseball, beginning at 12:35 p.m. ET in Cincinnati before calling it a night with a 10:10 p.m. ET start in Chavez Ravine. Of the 15 matchups, only three feature a pair of teams with realistic chances of making the playoffs. The Giants host the Mets in a matinee followed by Yankees entertaining the Red Sox and the Athletic visiting the White Sox.

Patience is one of the tenets of fantasy baseball. Patience slow starters get in the groove, patience your roster comes together, and patience Saturday's streaming options improve. Currently, they are horrid. However, the Miami Marlins, San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers are waiting to announce their mound plans, and since they face the Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates, respectively, the inventory should be more palatable by gametime. As always, we'll update the notes on Saturday morning, hopefully with at least one streamer added.

Colorado Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers is on a 14-game hitting streak and is this week's hottest free-agent add. He and five others are rostered in fewer than 50 per cent of ESPN leagues.

Today's slate is as barren as they come for pitching options, and even hitting will have us streaming against aces because of ancillary factors and lack of alternative options. If your league has an innings limit, it may be advisable to simply sit today out, maybe double-stream another day.

I don't know how I always seem to write up the worst pitching slates, and this may be the worst I've written all year. There is very little to like, but we can still try to find some small edges here. Hitters are much easier given games at Coors Field, Great American Ball Park and six pitchers with a context-neutral ERA over 5.00 to target.

The average games played per team is 99, so there are about 63 left per team. Now think about some of the outlying performances in last year's 60-game campaign. The point is, there is still plenty of time for your team to make up ground if you catch lightning in a bottle like Luke Voit or Zach Davies last season.
