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
Wouldn't it be the most Robbie Ray thing in the world if he got pulled at 4.2 innings each start this year? Great strikeouts, bad command. We know who he is.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 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
While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
