Projections for 2019: Starting Pitchers (Fantasy Baseball)

I’ve finally gotten to a point where my rankings and projections are complete for the 2019 save for some tinkering based on injuries, roster construction, lineup spot, etc. You can find all of my positional and overall rankings here. I’ve also include a link to the google sheet for easier access. I will try and update these projections regularly, so check back. If you’re wondering why I haven’t projected any closers or relievers, it’s because they are nearly impossible to project. As difficult as wins are to predict, saves are significantly more difficult. Plus, the volatility of the closer position is very high and many teams have committees. All that’s left to do before the season starts is compare my rankings to Yahoo and ESPN and get my bold predictions out!

Right now, it’s time for starting pitcher projections. You’ll notice I’m a bit conservative when it comes to innings but that’s the landscape of baseball today. The fewest number of 200 inning pitchers occurred last year and the trend is continuing to plummet. If I’ve missed someone, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll get you projection. Enjoy!
