Expected SP Schedules: Who Has the Best Matchups in Weeks 23-24

EVERY starter on EVERY team broken down!

With a month left in the season, things are starting to settle as far as playoff contenders and pretenders. Outside of the three-horse race in the AL West, all other divisions appear to have a clear path for their current leaders, leaving us with only a few intriguing options.

Both leagues still have wild card spots to settle, and starting pitching becomes a premium commodity around these dates. Even with September call-ups and injuries, there are always opportunities to find value to ensure a successful result for your fantasy teams.

Below, we break down every MLB team’s starting rotation for the next few weeks to help you plan the back end of your fantasy rotation. This tool is beneficial if you’re looking for streamers or flexing fringe starters in and out of your lineup and can be especially useful in September if you are trying to reach an innings cap.

Before we delve into the teams, below are our matchup rankings. These match those in Nick Pollack’s SP Streamers for consistency. If you disagree, that’s your prerogative! They are meant to be a loose guide. The most important thing is to pay attention to the matchups.


Nick’s Loose Team Offense Rankings (Updated 8/16)


Here’s a key for a few terms you may encounter below:

(OFF) means the team has an off-day before they play that team. 

(DH) indicates a doubleheader that day.

SPOT STARTER should be obvious, but this pitcher will only start once.

??? represents an unclear rotational spot, and the notes will explain options.

Above all else, please remember that schedules change often! The grids below represent our best estimate at the time of publishing, but players get hurt, come back from the IL, get sent down or called up, or get an extra day of rest all the time. Use this as a guide and double-check a player’s status before making roster changes.
