Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 16

6

Mark Barry

Gerrit Cole, your table is ready (again).

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.

Fantasy Freestyle: The 10-Day DL and Six Degrees of the Dodgers Rotation

0

Mark Barry

Dodgers use of 10-day DL and six viable starters has aided their rotation and might give them an advantage all season. How can fantasy players take advanatge?

When the 10-day DL reemerged into our collective consciousness, the idea was relatively simple. Teams wanted to maintain roster flexibility while also protecting their players from “gutting it out” through lingering injuries that might not warrant missing two full weeks of the season. A secondary function of the new, abbreviated DL has unearthed itself over the first half of the season. The shorter DL trips have allowed teams to manipulate the traditional five-man starting rotation, and nobody has gamed the system quite like the Dodgers.

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: First Half in Review

0

Mark Barry

Looking back (and a little forward) at the hits and misses of 2017 through the midway point.

It’s halftime. Let’s take a breath, enjoy the festivities, and take a look back at how wrong I was in the first half. This week we’re going to review the starting pitchers that made the biggest leaps (or suffered the biggest falls) with our weekly confidence. Hopefully by the end, we’ll have a little more clarity about what happened, whether it is likely to continue, and how we can make second-half predictions that are flawless and perfect and the best predictions that anyone has ever made in history. You know, or something like that.

Who's getting two starts in real life, and who should you start twice in your fantasy league? Stephen Strasburg and Yu Darvish, for sure...

Corey Kluber is described as robot-like for several reasons, including his dependability. So start him twice. The same goes for Clayton Kershaw and Jon Lester.

Stephen Strasburg is the lone auto-starter of the week, but no one else should get any such vote of confidence. Be careful out there.

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 9

2

Mark Barry

It's a rough week in the NL, where no one with two scheduled outings is worthy of automatic, fore-sure, consecutive starts. Carlos Carrasco and Chris Sale, conversely, are ready to pitch two.

Every Friday, we preview the hurlers scheduled for two starts in the upcoming week. Hopefully that gives enough insight to make educated lineup moves and FAAB decisions over the weekend. As the old wrestling promoters would always say, “Card Subject to Change," because lots can happen between the time this goes up and first pitch. Unfortunately—weather, injuries, and tinkering managers make this less than a science. I’ll do my best, though, and should new information present itself after this posts, we can go over it in the comments. We’ll crowdsource this as well, so if you hear anything, feel free to comment and we all can offer our takes, hot or not.

Here’s how this works. The pitchers will be split by league using these categories:

Noah Syndergaard is an auto-start (unless he's not). So it's going to be one of those kind of weeks.

Baseball Therapy: You Gotta Keep 'Em Separated

14

Russell A. Carleton

Does separating starters of the same type in the same rotation make sense?

It's the time of year when managers start thinking about games that will actually count. Positional battles are heating up, because decisions need to be made. Opening Day starters are being named. Variations in lineups are being considered, for facing righties, lefties, and Pat Venditte. Your favorite team has spent the spring trying to decide between two players, both of whom are relative unknowns. Due to the 50/50/90 rule (when you have a 50/50 chance of getting something right by chance, you will get it wrong 90 percent of the time), they will pick the wrong utility infielder and the other guy will become a decent starter for some other team.
