We’re finally winding down early ranking season. After this piece, we’ll only have the most speculative position in fantasy baseball left – closers. Before we make our way down that road, let’s finish out starting pitchers.
Part I, which can be found here, saw the “whose who” of pitchers come off of the board. At this point, Clayton Kershaw is long gone. Yu Darvish, Max Scherzer, and Adam Wainwright are all also a memory. Fret not, there is still plenty of talent left on the board. In fact, I usually purposely wait until this tier to pick the “anchor” of my staff, because the price is much more palatable.
The next 10 guys are likely not going to be a huge bargain on draft day, but they’re good enough to be considered “safe” and possibly return a little surplus value in the process. Let’s rank ‘em.
