2013 Starting Pitcher Sleeperz™

Analysis based on 5x5 mixed roto non-keeper, all ADP values are from ESPN.

Yu Darvish, ADP 50
Priced at the bottom of the top tier of pitchers, but could easily finish in the middle or top of it.

Adam Wainwright, ADP 53
Another discount Ace, going 13th among starters but a solid fantasy No. 1.

Mat Latos, ADP 75
Going as a No. 2 starter but he's basically a No. 1.

Max Scherzer, ADP 88
Yovani Gallardo, ADP 89
Studs but still underrated for some reason.

Brandon Morrow, ADP 111
If he had stayed healthy all year he would be going about 30 picks earlier than this.

Jon Lester, ADP 134
Last year's disaster is this year's discount.

Jeff Samardzija, ADP 151
Up and coming strikeout artist.

Mike Minor, ADP 181
Last year's early season struggles keeping his price low.  He is poised for a breakout.

Josh Beckett, ADP 220
Definitely on the downside of his career but at this price, should still be very helpful in fantasy in 2013.

Alex Cobb, ADP 223
Young and getting better.  Worth a shot here.

Marco Estrada, ADP 225
Great value late.

Brandon McCarthy, ADP 225
Unexciting but very solid here.

Brandon Beachy, ADP 227
Matt Garza, ADP 227
Will start the year on DL but if you can stash them in a shallow league, worth a try.

Julio Teheran, ADP 227
This might be a year early, but he has tremendous upside and appears to have a rotation spot for now.

Shelby Miller, ADP 230
This might be a year early, but he has tremendous upside if he gets a rotation spot.

Hisashi Iwakuma, ADP 231
Shhh, steal this guy in your draft like a ninja.

Wandy Rodriguez, ADP 237
He's down here because your leaguemates are bored with him.

AJ Griffin, ADP 260
Won't set the world on fire but a great value here with some upside.

Erasmo Ramirez, ADP 260
Upside worth a shot here.

Mike Fiers, ADP 260
Maybe not massive upside but should be fine, worth a shot here.

Jason Hammel, ADP 260
Was doing very well before his knee injury, could be solid and he's almost free at this point.

Corey Luebke, ADP 260
Was breaking out before his injury, if you can stash until mid season, might help you.

May be in minors but keep on your radar:
Gerrit Cole
Trevor Bauer
Drew Smyly
Tyler Skaggs
Jacob Turner
Zack Wheeler

Deeper leagues (12 tm+), some upside:
Felix Doubront
Jake Arrieta
Dillon Gee
Patrick Corbin
Vance Worley

Deeper leagues (12 tm+), good filler:
Joe Blanton
Gavin Floyd
Bud Norris
Clayton Richard (esp. at home)
Jose Quintana

Deeper leagues, watch list:
Francisco Liriano
Scott Baker
Wily Peralta
