Notes 
 One of my guilty pleasures in the fantasy realm is drafting Kyle Gibson year after year. He is a solid SP who does a lot of things well, although the results don't always show that. If the Rangers can tap into his potential, like they did Lynn and Minor in 2019, he could be a steal at ADP.

See Cueto, Johnny. Lester is no more than a streaming option.
