Notes 
 Paddack earned his "biggest spring training breakout" award with an outstanding season, albeit one capped with an innings limit. The reins should be taken off a bit this year, which should allow Paddack to remain in a groove and build on his outstanding 2019 numbers. His fastball and changeup are simpy elite, and if he can continue to refine his curveball, he could develop into a true fantasy ace.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Darvish's season was a tale of two halves. He was utterly unplayable to begin the season, tallying a 1.56 WHIP through May and walking roughly six batters per nine innings. But Darvish pulled out of it and then some, walking only seven batters over his final 14 starts, during which he had a 2.95 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Can you fully trust Darvish? Probably not? But should you expect him to pitch closer to his second half than his first? For sure.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Which Yu Darvish will we get? If if it second half 2019 Darvish, he will blow his ADP out of the water, if it is first half 2019 Darvish, he will be a big loss of investment. Honestly know way of knowing, just depends if you want to take the risk or not.
