News

Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Fri, Mar 6th

Notes 
 A 5.22 ERA in April scared fantasy owners, but Buehler quickly recovered from the Dodgers' ill-planned "ease into the year" plan. He looked precisely like the pitcher his fantasy owners had hoped for after that, ending the year with a 3.26 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 29.2% strikeout rate. His meager five percent walk rate was one of the best in the league, and with an incredibly strong offense behind him once again, Buehler should excel in all four of the starting pitching categories in 2020. Have no concerns.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Bieber was simply fantastic in 2019 and gave you everything you want from a stud pitcher. He was second in the league innings, had a 3.28 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP, and was top-10 in strikeout and walk rates. He gave up his fair share of home runs but, overall, there are next to no complaint about Bieber. Draft him with confidence as a low-end ace.
