Notes 
 Even with youth on Albies' side, he's a rather boring pick here, but boring can be good - especially at the position. But, at a third-round cost, he doesn't really stand out in any category. You're banking on the .295 average being more legitimate than the .261 average in 2018 and hoping that he steals mid-teens bases again."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Durability is an issue that concerns me less in 60 games than it might if we were in 162, but he isn't an Ace any more. He gets hurt too much and a DL/IL stint is a killer in a 9 week season.

Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Kershaw silenced the decline talks last year after he put up another good season with an improved SwStr%. In quality starts leagues, he was money for managers, as he consistently went six and seven innings in his starts. He's had to change who he is as a pitcher, as the velocity just isn't there, which gives him little margin for error. He's worth taking still, but he's more of an SP2 at this point.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  No longer an ace but the price to draft him is reasonable. Can expect wins playing for the Dodgers, which can be tough for SPs to find
