Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner

Week 15

by Mark Barry


It's time to preview the hurlers scheduled for two starts in the upcoming week. As the old wrestling promoters would always say: “Card Subject to Change,” because injuries and tinkering managers can make this less than a science. Should new information present itself, we can go over it in the comments.

Most of these recommendations are based on a combination of ADP/auction price and PECOTA projections for opponent strength. As the season progresses and we get more concrete data points for how the pitchers and their opponents perform, the formula will evolve into a performance-based projection. For more information on some key terms—Auto-Start, Start, Consider and Sit—click here.

*This week is a little wonkier than most, as some leagues started new head-to-head matchups Friday, while others carried stats over from the week before the All-Star break. With some leagues back to business as usual with games on Monday, July 17, I figured we should follow that lead and get started on our stretch run toward Titletown. Not every club has announced their plans for handling pitchers to start the second half, so we’re pulling on our projection pants and trying to piece together what these rotations might look like. Expect change. Bear with me.
