Notes 
 Strikeouts: they're addictive and why Corbin is higher on my list than maybe he deserves. His potential to get them. Nice schedule and park effects in the 60 game sprint structure of this season. Orioles, Mets, Marlins, Rays.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
If you checked out early for fantasy football, you may have missed how Eloy Jimenez finished the season. He hit .325 with 12 home runs and a near 1.000 OPS in his final 40 games of the year. It gives renewed optimism for those invested in Jimenez after he had a solid - not great - rookie campaign, though injuries cut short a mid-season hot streak. It's smart to bet on a pedigree with prospects like Jimenez and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. When you see a long stretch of success, it gives you a reason to push them up and remain optimistic in their present and future value.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Why is Patrick Corbin being underrated? Sure, his 2018 season raised eyebrows in a contract year, but he backed it up in 2019, which typically silences the critics. Instead, you're getting a safe - albeit with limited No. 1 upside potential - ace in the fifth round. Take it the value and run. Corbin allows you to either load up with hitters early on and have him as your fallback option, or he allows you to have two aces to give you a leg-up on your competition.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Hit .308 with a .917 OPS over the final two months of rookie season
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Corbin largely followed up on his breakout 2018 season with the Nationals last year, again reaching the 200-inning plateau and pitching to a low-3.00 ERA. He continued to lean heavily on his outstanding slider, against which batters hit just .158. His walk rate and strikeout rate rose and fell just a tad from his peak, a trend that fantasy owners can expect to continue. But Corbin's baseline is excellent and even with further slow decline in skills, he should be an outstanding starter for a fantasy rotation.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 About as consistent as you can get. Tremendous option if you decide to go hitter-hitter or even hitter-hitter-hitter to start.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Has put up back-to-back seasons with 200 IP, 230+ strikeouts, and an ERA in the low 3s
