rotoballer-fantasy-baseball-advice-hisashi-iwakumaWhat's up RotoBallers. There are some very solid two start pitchers (Hamels, Iwakuma, Strasburg, Wainwright, Teheran, Cueto, Fister, Tanaka, Bumgarner) in Week 15, and also some viable starting pitcher sleepers and streamers (Stroman, Morton, Martinez, Despaigne, Hahn, Leake, Locke) to consider off the waiver wire, depending on your league size and format including AL-Only and NL-Only leagues. Here at RotoBaller, we believe that it's key to analyze every SP matchup, each and every week, to help determine which SPs to start/sit and to hopefully find some hidden gems to bolster your teams.

All of the starting pitching matchups for Week 15 are listed below. For every week of the fantasy baseball season, we look to analyze all of the projected starting pitcher matchups and put together our optimal lineups. This weekly piece considers all of the pitching performances thus far this season, the pitcher's opponents, their career stats against the opponent, some ballpark factors and historical splits. With all of this information, we then provide our start/sit recommendations for each and every starting pitcher matchup for the approaching week of fantasy baseball.

Choosing the right pitchers to sit or start is critical component for our fantasy teams. We always want to avoid the huge blow-up for our pitching staffs, and a negative ERA/WHIP hit to our team's overall stats. Benching a pitcher that gets lit up can sometimes be the deciding factor in weekly or head-to-head formats. In season-long fantasy formats like roto leagues, and also in daily leagues, we have to be even more vigilant and choose each of our daily lineups with care. Good luck this week RotoBallers, let's win some leagues!
