2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball starting pitcher rankings for Sunday, April 26

Just like on Friday, I’m going to give you some safe pitchers, some upside pitchers then give you the overall pitching ranks.

These won’t help you today because most of the lineups have already locked. But they’ve been pretty good and I want to get them out here so we can compare them to players’ performances.

There are a few pitchers — Gio Gonzalez is the obvious one — atop all of the lists. We should have strong confidence in them. If I could go back to pre-opening pitch, I’d want to pair Gonzalez with Lance Lynn, but I have a feeling my Chris Archer-Lynn pairing will do pretty well.
