Week 1 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Thought we might be able to have a central location to cuss and discuss fantasy baseball each week. I know we will still talk about it in baseball and OT threads but maybe some of it will pour into here.

I'll keep making these every week unless no one wants it or uses it then I'll quit. Just an experiment.

As a way to fill words and maybe start some discussion here is an excerpt from Tristan Cockcroft's Week 1 Preview from ESPN.

Fantasy Forecaster

Projected starting pitchers

The chart below lists each of the 30 MLB teams' schedules and projected starting pitchers, and provides a matchup rating for each day's starter. Pitchers scheduled to start at least twice this week are in gray/beige boxes.
