This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.
It's a relatively busy week for double dippers with 42 starters scheduled for two starts. Of course, everything is subject to change this time of the season as playoff-bound teams begin to ready for the postseason while non-contending clubs begin to look at potential arms for next year.
If you need to make up pitching points, this is the week to take some chances since the schedule for the final two weeks will be in even more flux.
Please direct all inquiries concerning the schedule to the Projected Starters grid. All questions revolving around rankings can be posted in the comments below.
Please come back Sunday night for the final rankings after teams firm up their plans for the week.
For the week Sep. 9-15.
