My fantasy perspective: Marquis is trying to make believers out of fantasy owners by throwing his fifth consecutive quality start of the season while upping his record to 3-0 and lowering his ERA to 2.62 and WHIP to 1.17. In 34.1 innings this season, he's struck out 24 (6.33 K/9) and walked just 5 batters. His ownership numbers are so low (3.3% ESPN; 3% Yahoo!), so there's no hurry to make a decision but be aware that his next scheduled start would be against the Phillies...in Philadelphia. I'm waiting to see how he comes out of that game before I start believing he's fantasy-relevant again. Wait, was he ever?
