Notes 
 There's a lot of focus on the second-half performance of Yu Darvish, one in which he allowed just seven walks over his final 13 starts, but not a lot on his dreadful first three months of the season, where he was at best a streamer who was walking everyone. Maybe he figured it out, but the whole is a greater sample than selected stretches. For Darvish, you're likely looking at a player who will be somewhere in between. He'll be a strikeout artist, but he'll be an average pitcher who is fine - not great - in the other categories. If his first half of the season in 2019 happened in the second half of the season instead, we'd be looking at him as a late-round flyer at best.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
One of my favorite values this season. At the very least he should be a lock for 200+ Ks, a decent amount of wins, a solid ERA (Certainly better than 2019) and a solid WHIP. His upside is becoming a CY Young contender that many expected he would be. Buy at his current price.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Darvish's season was a tale of two halves. He was utterly unplayable to begin the season, tallying a 1.56 WHIP through May and walking roughly six batters per nine innings. But Darvish pulled out of it and then some, walking only seven batters over his final 14 starts, during which he had a 2.95 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Can you fully trust Darvish? Probably not? But should you expect him to pitch closer to his second half than his first? For sure.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Finally made it through a season healthy last year. If you believe in his talent you should believe his 4.28 ERA comes down a bit
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Which Yu Darvish will we get? If if it second half 2019 Darvish, he will blow his ADP out of the water, if it is first half 2019 Darvish, he will be a big loss of investment. Honestly know way of knowing, just depends if you want to take the risk or not.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 From July 12th through the end of the year Darvish posted a 2.76 ERA with 118 strikeouts and just seven walks
