Notes 
 Strikeouts: they're addictive and why Corbin is higher on my list than maybe he deserves. His potential to get them. Nice schedule and park effects in the 60 game sprint structure of this season. Orioles, Mets, Marlins, Rays.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Very good SP that could break out in 2020. 60 games rather than the long, drawn out grind of 162 could help establish him as one of the best in the business on the bump without having to prove he can maintain his Ace stuff over the durability test that is a full 162. I bet he is overdraft in 2021, but in 2020 he could be a #1.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Why is Patrick Corbin being underrated? Sure, his 2018 season raised eyebrows in a contract year, but he backed it up in 2019, which typically silences the critics. Instead, you're getting a safe - albeit with limited No. 1 upside potential - ace in the fifth round. Take it the value and run. Corbin allows you to either load up with hitters early on and have him as your fallback option, or he allows you to have two aces to give you a leg-up on your competition.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The Padres actually managed to have Chris Paddack on an innings limit that didn't totally drive fantasy managers mad. He showed that he could hold up over the course of a full season, and he more than performed to the lofty expectations that were thrust upon him when he made the Padres Opening Day roster. Paddack is working on developing his curveball, and if he's able to throw that with more regularity, he's going to have three plus-pitches. We haven't even begun to see his upside."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Corbin largely followed up on his breakout 2018 season with the Nationals last year, again reaching the 200-inning plateau and pitching to a low-3.00 ERA. He continued to lean heavily on his outstanding slider, against which batters hit just .158. His walk rate and strikeout rate rose and fell just a tad from his peak, a trend that fantasy owners can expect to continue. But Corbin's baseline is excellent and even with further slow decline in skills, he should be an outstanding starter for a fantasy rotation.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Paddack earned his "biggest spring training breakout" award with an outstanding season, albeit one capped with an innings limit. The reins should be taken off a bit this year, which should allow Paddack to remain in a groove and build on his outstanding 2019 numbers. His fastball and changeup are simpy elite, and if he can continue to refine his curveball, he could develop into a true fantasy ace.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 About as consistent as you can get. Tremendous option if you decide to go hitter-hitter or even hitter-hitter-hitter to start.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Allowed more than two walks just twice in 26 starts, resulting in a 0.98 WHIP for the season
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Has put up back-to-back seasons with 200 IP, 230+ strikeouts, and an ERA in the low 3s
