Notes 
 Bumgarner is attractive this year if you're looking for solid volume from your pitchers opposed to high upside. He won't need to be built up, so you can count on consistent production from him all year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
Dan Harris - 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.
