Notes 
  Wood will open 2019 on the IL with a back injury, but don't forget about him. Even before getting hurt, he was overlooked in drafts despite carrying a career 3.29 ERA and 3.36 FIP and gaining job security with a move from the Dodgers to the Reds. The park change and diminished velocity have caused valid concerns, but the 28-year-old righty should remain a solid No. 4 or 5 starter when healthy.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
  Wood seems to be a perennially underrated fantasy option. He's compiled a strong 3.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 803 1/3 innings since 2013, most of them coming as a starter. He will call a hitter-friendly ballpark home for the first time this year, but his ability to generate ground balls should help mitigate the damage. He also won't have to fight for a rotation spot like he did in Los Angeles, meaning a boost in innings could be in store.
