Notes 
  Over his first three seasons with the Dodgers, Maeda has finished as the SP19, SP33, and SP49 in standard 5x5 rotisserie leagues, despite averaging just 145 innings pitched per season. He is a good bet to again produce an ERA around 3.80, WHIP around 1.20, and better than a strikeout per inning. While it would be unwise to expect more than around 130 innings from Maeda this season, given how the Dodgers have handled Maeda and the rest of their pitching staff over the last couple years, he's proven he can be a solid mixed league asset even with a limited workload. He's particularly valuable in shallower leagues (10/12 team leagues with short benches) and leagues with multiple DL spots, since there will be decent fill-ins available for the starts he misses in those formats.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  Maeda recorded a 3.30 FIP and 27.7 K% as a starter before getting moved to the bullpen with a case of Dodgeritis. The Dodgers indicated that he will open with a rotation spot in lieu of Ross Stripling and Julio Urias, but he remains reasonably priced around the pick-200 range. That's a fair cost to pay for 130 innings with ample strikeouts and ratios close to his career 3.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. Ride him out of the gate, but consider trading Maeda before another bullpen move if he starts strong.
