Today and Tomorrow's Starting Pitcher Rankings (5/16, 5/17)

Welcome back RotoBallers! Below you will find our fantasy baseball and DFS rankings for all of the projected starting pitchers for today (Thursday, May 16th) and tomorrow (Friday, May 17th).

The concept is pretty straight forward. We round up our daily pitcher rankings, which will hopefully help you make your start/sit lineup decisions for both season-long leagues and DFS contests.

In case you missed it, we've been rolling this article series out since 2017. Use this column to set your lineups for today, and to get a better sense of which starters we think will have success. Here we go.
