Notes 
 If I didn't have more self control, I'd put Richards in my Top 100 overall players. I'm all in this year, and you should be, too. Health is the only issue for Richards throughout his career, and he has literally no reason not to throw as many innings as possible for the Padres this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
DeSclafani had a sub-4 ERA, and also a 9-plus K/9 and 10-plus SwStr% for the first time in his career. If he stumbles, Tyler Mahle is waiting in the wings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Desclafani quietly had a decent season in 2019, with a 3.89 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and more than a strikeout per inning. But his FIP and xFIP suggested he was lucky, and he lacks the upside of other late-round starters. In deeper mixed leagues where your rotation is solid and you just want someone to not hurt you, Desclafani is your guy. Otherwise, go for a higher ceiling.
