2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STARTING PITCHING RANKINGS: 61-80

61.  Jeff Samardzjia:  The old high-K rates from his Chicago Cubs days are no more but Samardzjia works well in a spacious park as your SP 4.
62. Matt Moore:  Moore has some of the old bite back on his stuff moving further away from TJ surgery but control woes still undermine him.
63. Blake Snell:  Talked about the very high strikeout potential here but Snell really need to lower the ghastly plus-5.00 BB/9 rate of a year ago.
64. Gio Gonzalez:  Still striking guys out at a solid clip but Gio is becoming more hittable than ever.
65. Jeremy Hellickson:  Quality back-end arm who won't hurt you.
66. Zach Davies:  Opened eyes with very solid pitching for a bad team in 2016.  K rate better than advertised as well.
67. Jason Hammel:  Made a career out of being a first half gem and a second half dud.
68. Ian Kennedy:  Getting into the boring but effective veteran hurlers now.
69. Jake Odorizzi:  See above.
70. Drew Pomeranz:  Had a typical drop across the board going from San Diego to Boston and had elbow woes as well.
71. Daniel Norris:  Overshadowed by Michael Fulmer but shouldn't be.  Jon Gary clone who could really take off this season.
72. Adam Wainwright:  Age and severe drop in velocity now make Wainwright nothing more than a back-end innings eater.
73. Eduardo Rodriguez:  Once over his knee problems, Rodriguez looked like a different pitcher for the better last season.  Hate the division however.
74. Joe Musgrove:  Poised and polished pitcher who lacks to-end K stuff.
75. Steven Wright:  Do you really want to trust a knuckleball pitcher?
76. Chris Tillman:  Always good for wins and a modest ERA.
77. Ervin Santana:  Santana pretty much the same pitcher as Tillman but just older.
78. Alex Cobb:  Another year removed from TJ surgery could help Cobb go back to being the interesting sleeper he was prior to the surgery.
79. Hisashi Iwakuma:  Losing velocity and numbers inching up everywhere.
80. Anthony DelScalfani:  Dependable arm who can supply useful ratios.
