Notes 
 Aaron Nola is one of the more polarizing players in fantasy baseball, but if you're looking for a dependable pitcher who can give you not just volume, but good volume, you shouldn't be too quick to discount what Nola brings to the table. He consistently goes six and seven innings, and he's one year removed from being a legitimate Cy Young candidate. If the baseball returns to its normal form, you should see Nola return to that Cy Young level, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Nola simply wasn't very good in 2019. His control took a major step back and batters consistently made better contact against him, particularly against his fastball. Whether it was an aberration for the youngster after two years of major growth, or whether perhaps Nola isn't as good as previously thought, is an open question. But given how drastically his control dipped, fantasy owners would be wise to give Nola somewhat of a pass for his 2019. He can't be drafted as an ace, but as a second starter? Go for it.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Started slow and finished poorly. However, if you're a believer you can cling to a four-month stretch where Nola posted a 2.96 ERA with 10.2 K/9
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
