Recommendations for Roto 5×5 Leagues


The chart includes their 2024 stats (this changed over from last year’s stats on April 22nd), their opponent’s wOBA versus the pitcher’s handedness from this year so far (this is changed as of April 11th), my general start/sit recommendation for 10-team, 12-team, and 15-team (or more) leagues, and then a note about them. Obviously, there are league sizes beyond those three so it’s essentially a shallow, medium, deep. If a pitcher only has an “x” in 15-team, it doesn’t mean there’s no potential use in 10s and 12s, but that just means it is a riskier stream as the league gets shallower.

These are general recommendations, and your league situation will carry more weight whether you are protecting ratios or chasing counting numbers. This is for standard 5×5 roto leagues. The thresholds for H2H starts are generally lower, especially in points leagues so I thought there would be more value focusing on roto and then you can generally expand these recommendations a bit for points leagues.

As a non-O’s fan/watcher, I did a double take and had to double check they’re really doing that poorly against RHP in the L30. FG leaderboard has them 27th not 29th as of 5/19 (maybe didn’t have yesterday’s games when you wrote this) but either way I’m pretty surprised. Almost as surprised to see right behind them ATL, wild!

I think my misconception was based in the O’s power-heavy offense (7th in ISO vRHP L30), and HRs allowed just ruin you in ottoneu points…
