Notes 
 Is Jose Berrios overrated a little bit every year? Yeah, definitely. Berrios can be inconsistent from start to start, and you want more when you watch him pitch and he's on. That said, while he may not be an ace, he's one hell of an SP2 to have on your roster. You want guys who are going to give you 200 innings and a good strikeout rate. Berrios checks those boxes, even with the occasional bad start.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Wheeler's had a fine career so far, and he parlayed a solid year with the Mets into a long-term deal with the Phillies. He's not that attractive of a fantasy asset, but he'll offer the volume you want this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Berrios reached 200 innings but didn't really take the step forward that most fantasy owners had hoped for. His strikeout rate dropped, his WHIP increased, and batters made better contact. Still, Berrios was a pitcher who fantasy owners could start each and every time out, contributed well in wins, and rarely walked batters. When you add it all up, Berrios remains a starter that fantasy owners should covet, but perhaps temper expectations until he shows that he's ready to take that next step.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.
