The Baller Ranks: Top 101 Starting Pitchers Weekly Rankings

The final week of the 2020 fantasy baseball season means the Week 10 Starting Pitcher Baller Ranks are here to help analyze where the top 101 SPs stand for the final sprint. You can check out my weekly Top 101 Relief Pitcher Baller Ranks as well.

David Emerick rolled out an introduction to our Baller Ranks here -- I suggest you read for a full explanation of our purpose, but the TL;DR is here we're providing a one-stop-shop for pitcher and hitter valuation. We'll explore value produced to-date, their current standing, and provide some notes on key movers. Time is short this weekend and most just need a quick eval for charting streamers, so we'll stick to the ranks table.

And for those who want stats like the usual 5x5 categories, strikeout rates, Called + Swinging Strike (CSW) rates, xwOBA, and more on a decked-out spreadsheet, we've got you covered - you can view the full Week 10 Top 101 SP Baller Ranks core sheet hereCLICK THAT. Next week I'll bring you a top 101 for 2021, but first we'll finish 2020 strong!
