This is it, folks. For anyone left playing in rotisserie leagues, these are our weekly starting pitcher matchups. For those in head-to-head leagues, you probably finished up last week. Hopefully we helped you win your leagues!

Below are the projected starting pitching matchups for Week 26, and will be updated as more starters are announced. If you've got any questions about which pitchers can capitalize on a juicy matchup and which ones might be worth putting on the pine against a fierce offense, this is the weekly piece for you.

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. 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.
