Notes 
 Rodriguez has tested positive for COVID-19, and Ron Roenicke has admitted that it's unlikely the Red Sox will have him ready for Opening Day. He's reportedly asymptomatic, however, which hopefully means he'll be able to have two positive tests and return to the team sometime after the first few days.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
 Rodríguez' biggest attribute last year was that he won a ton of games. You can't bet on that, so you can't bet on a repeat season for him, at least to the same level.
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
  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.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Only has two plus pitches and might eventually profile best as a reliever
