The schedule is key for Fantasy baseball. Knowing when your players might only be playing five games in a given week, knowing when you've got a glut of tough matchups to worry about, and when you're about to spend four days in Coors ... these can all help you squeak out a win in your Fantasy game.
Which is why you'll definitely want to check out weekly SportsLine's weekly hitting matchup analyzer. We've taken data scientist John Bollman's pitching power rankings, and applied them to every team's upcoming schedule, to identify the best and worst matchups for the upcoming week. The statistician formerly worked in the analytics department of a Major League Baseball front office, and now Bollman is turning his attention to the 2019 Fantasy baseball season to help you navigate the best and worst matchups your hitters will face.
We can tell you the Yankees face the best schedule in the league in Week 2, thanks to three games against the rebuilding Tigers' rotation, plus three more in Baltimore. The Yankees have plenty of no-doubt starters, but you'll also want to consider Luke Voit, Brett Gardner, and even potentially Greg Bird.
You'll probably want to avoid most of the Athletics' hitters, on the other hand. They do play seven times in Week 2, but matchups against Boston and Houston make them a team to avoid. You might not sit Matt Chapman or Khris Davis, but you'll want to leave the rest alone.
You'll want to bookmark this page and come back to it every week to make sure you've got the right information to pull in a win.
