Week 11 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


By SD Dirk on Flickr [CC-BY-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsWhat's up RotoBallers. There are some very nice two start pitchers with great matchups this week, so get those fantasy engines fired up. Like many other weeks, there are also some less obvious SP sleepers and streaming options who may still be available on your waiver wire based on the league format, including NL-Only and AL-Only leagues.

Every week of the MLB season, we are here to analyze all of the starting pitcher matchups and try to put together our optimal lineups. Each of Week 11's projected SP matchups are listed in this space. After considering the pitcher's performances so far this year, their opponents for the week, where they are pitching, how they've pitched against that opponent, the split stats against the opponent, and some other relevant factors - we are providing our Week 11 start/sit recommendations for each and every starting pitcher matchup.

Deciding which pitchers to start or sit can be an important factor for the success of our fantasy teams. Benching a pitcher that gets lit up is a life saver, and can sometimes be the deciding factor in weekly or head-to-head formats. In more traditional season-long formats like roto leagues, and also daily leagues, we have to be even more careful and choose our daily lineups with care. After all, there's nothing worse then getting an ERA/ WHIP blowup to your overall season stats. Good luck this week RotoBallers, let's win some leagues!

 

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

Editor’s Note: our fantasy baseball wire pickups list is updated every day by RotoBaller's writers. We provide waiver wire recommendations on starting pitchers who are hot or emerging, in addition to every other position. You can also download our free waiver wire iPhone app, and stay updated with our analysis on the run.
