Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Lynn Joins the Elite
Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Lynn Joins the Elite

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

It's another tepid week for double dippers with just 36 scheduled. As has been the case all season, they're concentrated at the top and bottom with fewer options available for pickup in mixed leagues.

By means of reminder, please direct questions about the schedule to the Projected Starters grid. Questions and comments pertaining to rankings will be answered in the comments below.

You know the drill by now. A final version will be posted Sunday evening after teams clear up their plans.

For the week of Aug. 12-18.
