Notes 
 Bumgarner is attractive this year if you're looking for solid volume from your pitchers opposed to high upside. He won't need to be built up, so you can count on consistent production from him all year.
Michael Waterloo - 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
 Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
Dan Harris - 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.
