Notes 
 Wouldn't it be the most Robbie Ray thing in the world if he got pulled at 4.2 innings each start this year? Great strikeouts, bad command. We know who he is.
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
 While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
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.
