Notes 
 UrĂ­as is the biggest faller for me, as he was a Top 100 player in my initial rankings. It's hard to trust the Dodgers to send Urias out there every fifth day for a full workload. It's time to buy in dynasty leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Please, for the love of all things good in the world (few things, as it turns out), get Marquez out of Colorado. It turns out even he can't defeat Coors Field.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Marquez seemed like the rare pitcher who could conquer Coors Field, 2019 showed otherwise. Marquez pitched to a 3.67 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP on the road, but a 6.26 ERA and 1.55 WHIP at home. Can he overcome the thin air this year? It's possible, but history is littered with pitchers who managed to buck the trend for one year only to fail to do so again. Marquez has the skill, but his home park make it seem unlikely he can provide quality value.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Marquez would likely be a top 25 arm if he didn't pitch half his games in Coors. However, he is still a great 4th or 5th starter for your fantasy rotation as he has nasty stuff and will be a force on the road.
