2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


John Lackey SP Boston Red Sox

John Lackey's K/9 has dropped in each of the last five seasons. His innings are starting to pile up, he's hitting the strike zone less, and opponents are having less trouble hitting him. Boston's run support in theory helps his W's, but you can't bank on that. For silver linings, he keeps the ball on the ground enough for you to settle on him, his velocity didn't drop notably, his BB/9 still isn't dangerous, and his skills rebounded in the final two months. At least you're getting a reliable innings eater, but how much can his K's recover?
