Notes 
 2019 was an insane year by the ex-Cub who was traded for the ability to rent Aroldis Chapman. One of the worst trades in baseball history. This guy is a beast and 2020 could be the year he makes the case for being a Top 5 Fantasy pick going forward.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Durability is an issue that concerns me less in 60 games than it might if we were in 162, but he isn't an Ace any more. He gets hurt too much and a DL/IL stint is a killer in a 9 week season.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Kershaw silenced the decline talks last year after he put up another good season with an improved SwStr%. In quality starts leagues, he was money for managers, as he consistently went six and seven innings in his starts. He's had to change who he is as a pitcher, as the velocity just isn't there, which gives him little margin for error. He's worth taking still, but he's more of an SP2 at this point.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 A lot of 2019 production came versus Orioles. He'll play them just as often in 2020.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
No longer an ace but the price to draft him is reasonable. Can expect wins playing for the Dodgers, which can be tough for SPs to find
