STARTERS: End Gamers

The end game is where you can earn the most profit from your starting rotation. After all, end-gamers are guys you pick up at the end of your drafts or for a token $1 bid.

Managing the end game isn't easy though. Not all guys are worth a $1 bid. Some have too much downside. Others don't have enough upside to justify having them on your roster.

This column will help you make informed decisions on which SP will be worth targeting in your end game as you fill out your rotations. Note that we will only discuss SP who have MLB experience. Please see our minors coverage for details on SP prospects.

End gamers vary based on league size and format, so remember to put these guys into the context of your league.
