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
His value is greater this year with the ability to eat innings, especially now that Joe Maddon is gone. Still, he leaves little room for error with how he pitches.
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
Hendricks can be dominant at times, but his lack of overpowering raw stuff means he has to be pinpoint with his control. When he's on, he can be unhittable, like when he led the league in getting hitters to swing at pitches outside the zone in the second half last year. But in the end, you know what Hendricks is going to give you. A sub-3.50 ERA, a sub-1.20 WHIP, and mediocre strikeout numbers. There's plenty of room for that on a fantasy team. But don't bank on much upside.
