Week 1 Sit/Start: Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


Week 1 - Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups

It's the start of the 2014 fantasy baseball season, so let's get right to it. We'll be taking a look at the projected starting pitcher matchups for Week 1 of fantasy baseball, and giving our recommendations on whether to Start 'Em or Sit'Em for all starting pitchers.

It's important to analyze pitching matchups, to make sure you reduce the risk of getting blown up. Especially in roto leagues, you don't want to inflate your ERA and WHIP too early on.

Good luck with all of your fantasy teams this week, and remember to check out our waiver wire pickups list as we update it daily with hot pickups to consider for your fantasy teams.
