Notes 
 Houser looked good in a small sample last year, and his RP eligibility helps him in points leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Dylan Cease and Eloy Jimenez for José Quintana. Never, ever forget.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Houser has an elite fastball, which he relies on heavily and against which batters hit just .203 last season. Whether he can continue to succeed with just one very good pitch is an open question, but considering his FIP and xFIP fully supported his 3.72 ERA, it's entirely possible. Overall, Houser should provide strikeouts without hurting you elsewhere, so he's an ideal late-round add.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Quintana went from a solid, low-3.00 ERA pitcher with the White Sox to an unreliable pitcher with over a 4.00 ERA in his time with the Cubs. His strikeout rate continues to trend down, and despite pitching at least 171 innings in each of the past seven seasons, he's never won more than 13 games. A low-upside, low-floor play, Quintana is just NL-only material.
