Notes 
 James still has legitimate ace upside if he can harness his arsenal and find his way into Houston's rotation. There is a chance this fireballer breaks camp in the rotation and if he does, we may just be looking at 200+ strikeouts in 2020. After all, his on-paper ratios may not seem great from 2019, but his xWOBa was above the likes of Mike Clevinger, Stephen Strasburg, Blake Snell and Walker Buehler. I don't need to tell you that this means he has ace stuff. But folks, he just might be the best pitcher in the Astros rotation this year if they give him the ball in the first inning.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
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.
