2011 – Fantasy Baseball Projections – Starting Pitchers by Tier

With a retooled Boston offense Jon Lester could finish tops in the win category for 2011.

Here are the 2011 Starting Pitchers by Value Tier.  Although all players are lumped by tier, please consider your younger, less seasoned options for Dynasty leagues over some veterans on bad teams or who have shown a steady decline in production over the last 3 years.  Try not to reach for a player while others in the same tier are avaialble.  If the high risk, high reward game is something that interests you then go right ahead and slide down a tier or two to grab that 2nd or 3rd year player you want,  but buyer beware.
