Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 16

7

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...

Fantasy Freestyle: What is up with Zack Godley

0

Mark Barry

There's another Zack G. in the D-backs rotation, and while he's not an ace like Zack Greinke his teammate, Zack Godley has been quite a welcome addition.

It took 118 years before the first “Zack G.” graced Major League Baseball. We all know about Zack Greinke. He’s good at pitching, and has admirably represented Zack G.’s everywhere. However, now there’s a new Zack G. stealing some shine, and he just so happens to share a rotation with Greinke. If getting ground balls is divine, Zack Godley has been downright heavenly this season and has emerged as a key member of the Diamondbacks rotation. While the start has certainly been impressive, his intervention has been anything but expected.

Fantasy Freestyle: Alex Wood: Elite Fantasy Performer?

2

Eric Roseberry

Alex Wood has been an All-Star caliber performer for the Dodgers, putting it all together at age 26. Will he sustain his terrific start to 2017?

Just over a week ago, Mike Gianella released his updated In-Season Fantasy Valuations. There weren’t a ton of surprises in terms of who was providing the most fantasy value. However, on his National League starting pitcher list there was a name that stood out. Situated in eighth, behind fantasy stalwarts like Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, and Stephen Strasburg, was Alex Wood.

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.

Fantasy Freestyle: David Price: Checking In

0

Mark Barry

Is the Price all right?

If you rely on sports radio or shouty talking heads, David Price’s first year in Boston was an unmitigated disaster. Another playoff struggle led to so many fun, informative, well-reasoned, inspired...oops sorry, blacked out for a second...I meant mind-numbing rants about clutchness and #thewilltowin. However, if you dug a little deeper and rely on the numbers, he was, well, very David Price.

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.
