Notes 
 Last year, fantasy managers were trying to decide between Freddy Peralta, Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff. We know who the clear winner was. If Woodruff didn't miss time with an oblique injury, there's no telling how good he'd be. The Brewers bullpen will be relied upon heavily with their other starters, so expect Woodruff to be the go-to length pitcher for them this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Aaron Nola overcame his early-career strikeout issues. Sonny Gray did, too. Is Soroka next?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Woodruff earned his breakout 2019, relying on his elite fastball to limit hard contact and avoid big innings. His solid control allows him to keep the line moving, and the Brewers' strong lineup adds to his win potential. Although he missed a large chunk of the season due to injury, he should be ready to lead the Brewers rotation this year, and can and should be drafted as a strong second-tier starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Soroka wasn't even necessarily supposed to begin 2019 in the Braves rotation but quickly developed into an ace. Although there's little reason to knock his year, his 7.32/9 strikeout rate ranked 49th out of 61 qualified starters. With an xFIP more than a run higher than his 2.68 ERA, there's every reason to expect regression. Still, there's room Soroka to continue to be an excellent fantasy option despite a step back, so don't avoid him during your draft.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Wish his Ks were higher, but he was a stud from the start in 2019 and should be a valuable fantasy starter again this season.
