Notes 
 There are two sides to the Montas argument: 1. that he enjoyed a solid stretch to start the year that was an outlier and 2. his breakout was a legitimate breakout that he'll carry over to the future. It's up to you to decide which you believe.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He needs to do what I think he can do, but that lack of proof hasn't prevented me from ranking him where I think he deserves to be. He has 200K full-season stuff that the 60 game sprint should make even more valuable. I like the schedule and the parks he will pitch in too.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Montas was one of the best starters in baseball until his season ended prematurely thanks to a PED suspension. Before then, he had used added velocity and improved control to lower is ERA to 2.63 and tally nine wins in just 16 starts. There's always a question of how a player coming off a PED suspension will perform the following year but, for the most part, they are often able to maintain much of their performance. Draft Montas expecting solid overall numbers, though expect an ERA in the 3.00s, rather than the 2.00s.
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
 Posted a 2.63 ERA in 96 innings last year. His suspension from 2019 makes the price to draft him very reasonable
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
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
