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
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
 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
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.
