Notes 
 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
Look, the division is scary for a pitcher like Ryu who doesn't miss many bats, but he's going to be the workhorse that the Jays and your fantasy team need this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Other than finally staying (almost entirely) healthy, Rodriguez didn't make many gains in 2019. His ERA remained in the high-3.00s, his WHIP and walk rate were career worsts, and his strikeout rate dipped. His 19 wins mask what was an otherwise mediocre season. There's plenty of room for Rodriguez on a fantasy staff. But not at the front end.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
When healthy, Ryu has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since his 2013 debut. But his preposterous year last season was surprising even for him. Ryu had the lowest BABIP-allowed on groundballs (just .162) of any pitcher in baseball in 2019, which led to just a 1.01 WHIP. Now in Toronto, that number is sure to rise precipitously and obviously have a negative impact on Ryu's 2020 numbers. That impact has been baked into Ryu's ADP at this point, so you won't have to buy him at his 2019 numbers. Just be prepared for regression.
