Notes 
 It's going to be difficult to find a fantasy player who isn't salivating to draft Luzardo, particularly after an expected breakout season was derailed by injuries last year. Now, purportedly without an innings restriction, Luzardo looks ready to fulfill the potential he has oozed throughout his career. Armed with four elite pitches and the ability to sit at 96 miles per hour, the only thing that looks to be able to hold Luzardo down is health. Absent injury concerns, he should be a monster.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 I want to move Lazardo further up these rankings because of his lights-out arsenal and pitching in Oakland helps those ratio's, but rookie innings limits are real and I am concerned that he won't pitch enough to reach his enormous ceiling. Guarantee me 210 innings pitched and he is a Top 40 Pick for me. I expect more like 130-150 and with some rookie struggles, that drops him down significantly. 2021 he will be hotter than Walker Buehler was.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
If the ball gets dejuiced, there may be no player more positively impacted than Matt Boyd. Boyd was destroyed by the long ball in 2019, and if he can cut that rate in half or even by a quarter, we may have a solid SP2 for fantasy purposes.
