Two start pitchers for week 11

There are an abundance of two start pitchers for the week ahead, and the tiers this week are a little more muddled than usual.  The vast majority of the names listed in the top 3 tiers should be considered a decent start in the majority of mixed leagues.

Don’t forget that I will release the official 2 start pitchers rankings this Saturday as these names tend to change over the course of the week thanks to weather and injuries.  If you have any questions about your fantasy squad please post them in the forums where the community can get involved.

News and notes

Hisashi Iwakuma – Iwakuma has established himself as a tier 1 SP, and while the major websites like ESPN aren’t ready to give him the respect that he deserves (still ranking him outside the top 20) his numbers speak for themselves and he should be considered a must start in all formats.

    Dillon Gee is coming off 12K against the Yankees. I’m intrigued by his play. Cain was terrible in his last start so I can see him being lower. I’m going to ride Iwakuma and Locke. Picking up Lackey off waivers, he has a nice K ratio so far.

  • mhoffner

    Cueto is on the DL now as most people know. Julio Tehran held a no no very deep this week as did Ogando.

    • __KJ__

      Yeah, when I post the updated two start pitcher projections on Saturday morning, all those changes will be included

  • mhoffner

    …as did Ogando in pitching well. Axelrod should be a good play too.
