Notes 
 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
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  If the ball gets dejuiced, there may be no player more positively impacted than Matt Boyd. Boyd was destroyed by the long ball in 2019, and if he can cut that rate in half or even by a quarter, we may have a solid SP2 for fantasy purposes.
