Starting Lineup

# NAME POS
1 Jonathan Villar OF
2 Brian Anderson 3B
3 Corey Dickerson OF
4 Jesus Aguilar 1B
5 Isan Diaz 2B
6 Jorge Alfaro C
7 Lewis Brinson OF
8 Miguel Rojas SS

 

Quick notes: Not much is rosterable here in a standard league, but there are some good batting average guys like Dickerson and Anderson, and Berti is interesting for steals.

Pitching Rotation

# NAME R/L
1 Caleb Smith L
2 Sandy Alcantara R
3 Jose Urena R
4 Pablo Lopez R
5 Jordan Yamamoto R

 

  • Better than his ADP: Smith (216), Alcantara (266)
  • Worse than his ADP: None (only Smith and Alcantara have top-300 ADP)
  • Starter least likely to stick in the rotation: Yamamoto
  • Non-starter most likely to enter the rotation: Elieser Hernandez

Quick notes: Smith is a nice late-round grab, and Alcantara has some upside. Hernandez could be interesting at some point, as he posted a strong 9.3 K/9 to 2.2 BB/9 in 2019.

Bullpen

Quick notes: The Marlins do not profile to win enough games to give you anything useful out of the bullpen.

Prospects

Other Helpful Fantasy Info

  • Park Factor: Unknown with the fences being moved in for the 2020 season.
