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
Let's not do this again with Matz, OK?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Matz is what is he is at this point. He'll likely give you around a 4.00 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and short of a strikeout per inning. With the Mets' addition of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha, Matz's rotation spot could be in jeopardy unless he gets traded. For now, assume he'll get a starting spot, and draft him in NL-only formats.
