Yu Darvish, Clayton Kershaw top two-start Starting Pitcher rankings-Fantasy Baseball


Each week as a fantasy baseball owner, it’s vital to evaluate your starting pitchers. In any kind of weekly scoring format (head-to-head points or categories), you need to know who is going to get 2 starts in the coming week.

Each week at FantasyCPR, I’ll be bringing you a ranking of all those pitchers expected to get 2 starts in the coming week with a comment or 2 on who I think makes the best additions if you can use the starts, wins, innings, K’s, and overall points bonanza that can result if you’re guy has 2 strong starts.

Here’s this weeks rankings of two-start pitchers, if you need an add for the week, I’d take the highest rated player available:
