2017 Top Fantasy Starting Pitchers

I’m going with Thor in the SP3 spot behind Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer. And I’ll pass on Fenway Park Chris Sale in Round 2, thanks very much … I love Jose Quintana, and I don’t care if everyone else doesn’t. He’s my SP22 … As I wrote in this “9 Things to Know” piece, the Rockies finally have a rosterable starting pitcher. We’ve been waiting for you forever, Jon Gray … There’s plenty of strikeout upside in the SP 4/5 area. Some of the names to consider are Vince Velasquez, Lance McCullers, Carlos Rodon, James Paxton and my pal Robbie Ray. My late-late-late preference is Cincinnati’s Brandon Finnegan, who improved quite a bit over the second half of last season … Rest in peace, Jose Fernandez. I’ll miss watching you pitch.
