Starts & Sits for Week 3 - All Starting Pitcher Matchups for Fantasy Baseball

Carlos Rodon - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, MLB Injury News, DFS Lineup Picks

Last week of April, the first month is flying by! I hope everybody is enjoying this content series, we've once again gotten some great feedback on the site and on Reddit, and we really appreciate it!

For those who are not familiar, RotoBaller puts out a weekly grid of starting pitcher matchups and "start or sit" recommendations. I (Jon Anderson) have taken it over for this year, and I'm excited to bring it to you all season long. I will say that my approach to this is going to be mostly conservative, you will see me leaning more towards "sit" when things are close. You should always, of course, keep in mind your league contexts. Depending on the depth of your league, it will make more or less sense to start a fringe guy. My default mindset here is a league where about 350 players are rostered, so just keep that in the back of your mind throughout the year.

For every week of the fantasy baseball season, we are going to analyze every single projected starting pitcher matchup for fantasy baseball and help you set optimal lineups. Below are the projected starting pitching matchups and starts/sits for Week 3 – April 25th through May 1st – which will be updated as rotations continue to be announced and modified. This column will make continuous adjustments for any postponements or rotation shuffles, reflecting official beat writer speculation for as many unconfirmed rotation slots as possible. Let's set those winning lineups!

Editor's Note: Our incredible team of writers received 13 award nominations by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association including Baseball Writer of the Year, Football Writers of the Year, Golf Writer of the Year and many more! Be sure to follow their analysis, rankings and advice all year long, and win big with RotoBaller! Read More!

 

Start/Sit Data Overview

This weekly piece considers the pitcher’s opponents, their outlook against lefties and righties, some ballpark factors, and historical splits. With all of this information, we then provide our start/sit recommendations for each starting pitcher matchup for the approaching week of fantasy baseball.

Each player will be valued with a Start/Sit recommendation, we are also including a "Score" column this year to display the level of confidence in that pick. Scores go from 0-100 in increments of five. The higher, the better! They are also color-coded, as you'll see.

Legend:

  • Proj GS - the number of starts the starter is projected to make in the week's scoring period.
  • Score - A metric of confidence, from 0-100 in increments of five. The higher, the better for the pitcher.

This chart is updated daily as probable starters are constantly changing with game postponements, injuries, and other events.
