Notes 
 The Astros are going to rely on Urquidy with Gerrit Cole's departure. I like James more, but Urquidy is safer.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Yarbrough is underrated in fantasy, but it may not be the best year to be invested in him with only 60 games.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Urquidy seemingly has the fourth starter's role locked down, and he offers and intriguing pitch mix, with an above-average fastball and changeup, with a decent slider.It's unlikely that the soon to be 25-year-old will develop into a consistent fantasy starter given his inconsistency, but he certainly has enough upside, as he showed in the playoffs, to warrant rostering in all fantasy leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.
