After running off an impressive string of magnificent starts, Archer struggled a bit last time out, allowing five runs, including three long balls, against the Red Sox. That outing was just a memory as he lowered his ERA to 2.18 and continued his 2015 dominance. Obvioyusly, he remains a consistently strong performer in all fantasy formats.

Archer gave up three homers in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox, leading him towards allowing five runs over six innings.

The outing wasn't a complete loss for Archer's owners, though, as he struck out 10 and allowed just six baserunners. The first of those three homers was about as short as possible, a line drive down the left field line by Pablo Sandoval. Archer faces the Yankees in New York in his next start Friday.

Archer now has a career-best six-start winning streak. The Blue Jays may lead the major leagues in runs scored by a wide margin, but Archer seems unphased by their daunting lineup. Archer is 3-0 this season against Toronto and 6-1 in 12 starts for his career. He will look to continue to push his candidacy for the AL Cy Young award in Sunday's start against the Red Sox.
