Notes 
 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
You'd like to see more swing and misses with Alcantara, but there's still upside there.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Dan Harris - 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.
