Notes 
 Lamet has one amazing pitch right now, and there's a chance they he can take the next step forward to become a top 25 pitcher. But if you're going to draft Robbie Ray, Jr., why not just draft Robbie Ray?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Price is another one of those veterans who are boring but will be extra valuable this year by giving you solid, non-elite innings. He's a big value gainer with the move to the NL West from the AL East.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lamet is a popular breakout candidate this year, after he returned from Tommy John surgery to throw 73 innings of solid baseball last year. Lamet is still much more potential than numbers - he hasn't dominated a level above A-ball and has questionable control. But his raw stuff, particularly his slider and curveball, are impressive, and he can miss bats with the best of them. They'll be no discount for Lamet this year, but if you're looking for upside, he's worth the gamble.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Price's 2019 numbers look ugly, remember that he had a low-3.00 ERA before giving up 20 runs over a four-start stretch after he was bothered by a cyst in his wrist. He had the highest strikeout rate of his career and his lowest FIP and xFIP since 2016. Now in the National League with the Dodgers, Price should have plenty left to give fantasy owners. Just downgrade your innings projections, as the Dodgers will likely look to keep Price's workload in check in preparation for the postseason.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 I am a little confused about all the Dinelson Lamet love. I know he has nasty stuff, but he is now 27 years old, he had Tommy John Surgery in 2018 and he has never pitched more than 150 innings in any year of his major league career. He has also shown inconsistencies. Drafting him over a guy like Matt Boyd, for example, is crazy to me.
