Notes 
 Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.
