Notes 
 His value is greater this year with the ability to eat innings, especially now that Joe Maddon is gone. Still, he leaves little room for error with how he pitches.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He needs to do what I think he can do, but that lack of proof hasn't prevented me from ranking him where I think he deserves to be. He has 200K full-season stuff that the 60 game sprint should make even more valuable. I like the schedule and the parks he will pitch in too.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Hendricks can be dominant at times, but his lack of overpowering raw stuff means he has to be pinpoint with his control. When he's on, he can be unhittable, like when he led the league in getting hitters to swing at pitches outside the zone in the second half last year. But in the end, you know what Hendricks is going to give you. A sub-3.50 ERA, a sub-1.20 WHIP, and mediocre strikeout numbers. There's plenty of room for that on a fantasy team. But don't bank on much upside.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Lamet has one amazing pitch right now, and there's a chance they he can take the next step forward to become a top 25 pitcher. But if you're going to draft Robbie Ray, Jr., why not just draft Robbie Ray?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Lamet is a popular breakout candidate this year, after he returned from Tommy John surgery to throw 73 innings of solid baseball last year. Lamet is still much more potential than numbers - he hasn't dominated a level above A-ball and has questionable control. But his raw stuff, particularly his slider and curveball, are impressive, and he can miss bats with the best of them. They'll be no discount for Lamet this year, but if you're looking for upside, he's worth the gamble.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  I am a little confused about all the Dinelson Lamet love. I know he has nasty stuff, but he is now 27 years old, he had Tommy John Surgery in 2018 and he has never pitched more than 150 innings in any year of his major league career. He has also shown inconsistencies. Drafting him over a guy like Matt Boyd, for example, is crazy to me.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Only has two plus pitches and might eventually profile best as a reliever
