Notes 
 UrĂ­as is the biggest faller for me, as he was a Top 100 player in my initial rankings. It's hard to trust the Dodgers to send Urias out there every fifth day for a full workload. It's time to buy in dynasty leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Smith tested positive for COVID-19 and has not been at Braves camp yet as of mid-July. When healthy, he'll be the prime handcuff for Mark Melancon, but with a shortened season and with his health concerns, there's little reason to draft him at the moment.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Dodgers confirmed he was their fifth starter in ST 1.0
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
The Braves bullpen is so good, that Smith may not get the saves we want or need him to get.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.
