Week 7 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


By Keith Allison on Flickr (Original version) UCinternational (Crop) [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsThere are less MLB games than normal for Week 7, but there are still some solid two start pitchers and plenty of starting pitcher sleepers and streamers to consider. It's important to analyze the weekly SP matchups to determine who to start/sit, and hopefully even uncover some diamonds in the rough off the waiver wire.

All of the MLB games for Week 7 are listed below with the projected starting pitching matchups. After considering each of these pitcher's performances to date, opponent, career stats, ballpark effects and historical split stats, we are providing our start/sit recommendations for each of this week's matchups.

It's still early in the season, so picking the right pitchers to sit or start can be an important component for the success of your fantasy teams. There's nothing worse than a huge blow-up and ERA/WHIP inflation to your overall stats. In weekly formats, starting or benching a SP can mean the difference between a win or loss for the week. In more traditional roto or daily formats, you'll need to be extra careful and prepare your daily fantasy lineups to win.  Best of luck this week RotoBallers!

 

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

Editor’s Note: RotoBaller's fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups list is updated daily. You can find more analysis on emerging starting pitchers, among other fantasy position players, to continuously beef up your team. And don't forget to download RotoBaller's waiver wire iphone app for free, and stay up to date while you're on the run.
