Notes 
 If I didn't have more self control, I'd put Richards in my Top 100 overall players. I'm all in this year, and you should be, too. Health is the only issue for Richards throughout his career, and he has literally no reason not to throw as many innings as possible for the Padres this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
You'd like to see more swing and misses with Alcantara, but there's still upside there.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Alcantara is a weird case. He went on a massive run late in the season in 2019, relying on his outstanding sinker to dominate hitters. His secondary stuff seems good enough to succeed, and yet the Marlins do not seem particularly high on him. He's dealing wth a rough spring, and even at his best, he's never had a season with a WHIP under 1.32. There's upside, but don't necessarily bank on it.
