Notes 
 It was surprising when the Marlins decided to trade Gallen to Arizona, but we are talking about a franchise that also traded Luis Castillo and Chris Paddack away. Gallen has a nice four-pitch mix, and if he replicates his minor- and major-league success from 2019, you're looking at a Top 50 pick in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Gallen was so absurdly dominant in Triple-A in 2019 that his MLB performance, while highly impressive, felt slightly disappointing. But his fastball, curveball, and changeup were all plus pitches in the majors, and there's every reason to expect him to continue to grow as a pitcher. There's somehow some question mark around his rotation spot, but cream usually rises to the top, and he should not only be one of the Diamondbacks' five starters, but he should excel. Expect excellent overall numbers and draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - 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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 With innings come strikeouts for Gallen and 2020 is the year he pitches more of them and becomes a relevant Fantasy SP. He is a steal currently and Fantasy owners need to load up on their shares.
