Week 4 Starting Pitcher Rankings for 2024 Fantasy Baseball

Last week we were curious to see if early surprise starters could sustain their emergence or if those starts were merely early luck. For several of those pitchers, like Hunter Brown, Tanner Houck, and others, the inevitable regression caught up to them with tough outings in decent matchups. This week, we lean closer on original full season pitcher projections to help managers play it smart and not dig a ratio hole, or dig out of one, early in the season.

Starting Pitcher Rankings for Week 4 (4/15 – 4/21)

A few prefacing notes to help you identify key risers and fallers in the starting pitcher rankings below:

  • This week marks the first true full week of several ace pitchers making up the majority of the two-start pitchers. At least what’s left of the original ‘ace’ tier of pitchers, unfortunately. Those two-start star names include Tyler Glasnow, Freddy Peralta, Aaron Nola, and George Kirby.
  • There are a few teams whose entire rotation benefits from easier matchups this week. These teams include the Phillies (COL & CWS), the Dodgers (WSH & NYM), and the Orioles (MIN & @KCR). Interestingly, the teams facing the Athletics have tough matchups to go along with that series this week.
  • Lastly, there are also teams with strong rotations that are limited in their rankings due to tougher matchups this week. These team rotations include the Braves (@HOU & TEX), the Rockies (@PHI & SEA), and the Angels (@TBR & @CIN). Several of those team’s frontline starters still have decent start confidence ratings for their matchups this week, but their rankings are far lower than normal.
