Justin Mason’s Top 125 Starting Pitchers (2/25 Update)

It is time for an update to my starting pitcher ranks for 2020. I will be discussing some of these with Paul Sporer and Nick Pollack on tomorrow’s Sleeper and the Bust Podcast, so definitely listen to that.

All ranks are based on 15-team standard leagues. ADP is from ADP and reflects Online Championship’s data since 1/1/2020. For more ranks of mine for 2020, you can click the links below:
