Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week Six

12

Paul Sporer

Paul lets you know which two-start options are worth considering in your weekly leagues this week.

Welcome to the Weekly Pitching Planner. Each week I will cover the pitchers are who slated to make two starts and help you decide who you should start and who you should sit. Sometimes guys will be in the “consider” where they might have one good start, but a second tough one and then your league settings might determine whether or not you should go forward with him. The pitchers will be split by league then by categories:

Auto-Starts – These are your surefire fantasy aces. You paid a handsome sum for them either with an early draft pick or high dollar auction bid so you’re starting them anywhere, anytime. Guys can emerge onto or fall off of this list as the season evolves. There won’t be many – if any – notes associated with these groupings each week. We are starting them automatically so why do I need to expound on how awesome they are and will be in the coming week?

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week Two

Paul Sporer

Strong matchups warrant gambles on Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum this week, even in the wake of their shaky debuts.

Welcome to the 2013 debut of the Weekly Pitching Planner. Each week, I will cover the pitchers who are slated to make two starts and help you decide who you should start and who you should sit. Sometimes, such as when a pitcher has have one good matchup and one difficult assignment, pitchers will be in the “consider” category; your league settings might then determine whether or not that pitcher should find a spot in your lineup. The pitchers will be split by league, and then by categories:

Auto-Starts – These are your surefire fantasy aces. You paid a handsome sum for them either with an early draft pick or a high-dollar auction bid, so you’re starting them anywhere, anytime. Guys can emerge onto or fall off of this list as the season evolves. There won’t be many—if any—notes associated with these groupings each week. They are, as the name says, automatic starts.

Weekly Planner: Week 25

Paul Sporer

Rotations are in serious flux as teams juggle starters down the stretch, but Paul helps make sense of it all in this week's Planner.

Some teams are running six-man rotations and every team seemingly has their rotation in flux, but we’ll try to iron out the two-start pitchers for next week as we inch closer and closer to wrapping up yet another 162.

AMERICAN LEAGUE
Auto-Starts: Max Scherzer and Doug Fister

Paul Sporer

It's a weak batch of two-start pitchers for AL-only leaguers, but Paul helps you get throw it in this week's Planner.

I hated to put Mike Fiers among last week’s “sits,” but with the trip to Coors on the docket, I just had to. That decision paid off as he hit his first real blip of the season.  I think we’ll see him rebound against the Phillies this weekend, though, and he is a good play going forward.  In the AL, both Matt Moore and Hiroki Kuroda have remained white-hot as they head into their weekend starts. 

NATIONAL LEAGUE
Auto-Starts: Clayton Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner, R.A. Dickey, Roy Halladay, Adam Wainwright, Jordan Zimmermann, and Cliff Lee

Weekly Planner: Week 18

Paul Sporer

This week finds tons of two-start pitchers worth using, so have at it.

Despite actually posting better peripherals than last year, Ian Kennedy’s ERA and WHIP have lagged this year, but he appears to be getting back on track with back-to-back gems and a chance for a third straight and second in a week when he faces the Mets on Saturday. He is still toting a 4.20 ERA, though, so there may still be time to buy at a discount. Anyone paying attention isn’t just going to give him away, but it’s worth a shot. Frankly, I’d buy at market value, so any discount would be icing.

It was supposed to be a star-studded week in the NL with six auto-starters going, but Clayton Kershaw, R.A. Dickey, and Roy Halladay have all been smacked around in their initial start of the week. At least Zack Greinke, Gio Gonzalez, and Josh Johnson have held up their end. Of the three duds, I’m not at all worried about Kershaw, am slightly concerned about Dickey’s horrid July, and am legitimately worried that Halladay simply isn’t 100 percent yet.

Weekly Planner: Week 10

Paul Sporer

Another round of two-start pitchers awaits fantasy players this week.

Kevin Millwood just keeps dominating.  He started off this week with a third straight strong outing against the Texas Rangers.  I’m not sure how he is doing it, but he is definitely on an incredible run.  And yet, I am still leery.  It was nice to see a gem from Matt Moore, and his curveball spurred the 10 strikeout performance.

I would feel fortunate to get out of Colorado with four earned runs on 10 hits if Wandy Rodriguez were on my team.  It could’ve been much worse, and there are maybe five or six pitchers in the National League I would trust in Coors Field (Kershaw, Hamels, Lee, Greinke, Gallardo and a healthy Halladay) at this point.  Bronson Arroyo has come back to Earth with a 5.01 ERA in his last four outings including four earned runs in three of them.  He is almost back to a full on sit for me.

Weekly Planner: Week Seven

Another crop of two-start pitchers are examined in this week's planner

Interleague play fires up next week, and we have a star-studded slate of two-start pitchers to examine.  Last week, I gave the thumbs up to the back end of the Red Sox rotation, but both Daniel Bard and Felix Doubront flopped in Kansas City.  They could redeem themselves at home against Cleveland, but they move down a peg and need to prove something before being trusted again.

All of the other “starts” in both leagues have pitched adequately or better in their first outing of the week, including gems from Ivan Nova, Neftali Feliz, Doug Fister (listed as Duane Below in the piece, but then corrected to Fister in the comments), Edwin Jackson, and Jeff Samardzija.  Conversely, many of the National League “sits” did quite well themselves, especially Carlos Zambrano and Bronson Arroyo.  I’m still concerned about both in the long-term, however, and Alex White (the “Unnamed Colorado Starter” in the piece) did have the good fortune of debuting in San Diego.

Value Picks: Starting Pitching for 5/3/12

7

Paul Sporer

Capuano, Bass, McDonald, and Wei-Yin Chen join the VP ranks this week

Another week has gone by, and we have flipped the calendar over to May. We’re reaching the point where even the fantasy managers who try to practice patience with their rosters begin to feel comfortable making a decision on a guy who is off to a slow start.  If your league is populated by these types of managers, you will start to see more activity on your waiver, forcing you to act more swiftly when you see someone who strikes your fancy.  Without further ado, let’s dive into the week’s value picks.
