I would not drop Cingrani for Cobb. They both have lots of talent, but the strength of your staff allows you to take a chance on the potential upside of Cingrani.

Help with mine please?

Main concern is cingrani throws 80percent fastballs and cons has been to a good start. I had Hudson but don't know if I trust his stuff further

Cobb has way too much upside to sit in waivers....I'd drop Maholm for him rather quickly. I mean Maholm was shelled in his last start and quite frankly I can see a big comeback down to Earth for him. He's going to have games liek this mixed with a few ok to decent starts. Cobb has more strikeout ability and the same ability to get QS. Don't drop Cingrani while he's on a roll either, that just does not make fantasy sense unless you were dropping for a serious upgrade and Maholm for Cobb is simply too good a move for you to make.

I don't like Hudson. He's actually been dropped a couple times already in my league (including myself).

I'd grab Cobb and drop Maholm. I've never been a Maholm fan but Cobb could be solid.
