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
Yarbrough is underrated in fantasy, but it may not be the best year to be invested in him with only 60 games.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Dodgers confirmed he was their fifth starter in ST 1.0
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.
Dan Harris - 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.
