Buehler hasn't looked quite as dominant as he did in his breakout 2018 campaign, but he's still been really good. Pitching in a favorable ballpark and division with a great lineup supporting him, Buehler has the talent to be a huge fantasy contributor down the stretch.

Buehler has lived up to expectations early in his second season, recording a 3.06 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 84 strikeouts and 13 walks in 82.1 innings. As a former Tommy John recipient who tossed 153.1 professional innings last year and plays for the Dodgers, he's highly unlikely to push past 175 innings this season. While that's something to keep in mind down the road, the depleted pool of aces makes him a top-10 starter right now.

After tearing through the minors, Buehler pitcher pretty well for the Dodgers in the first half. Then a flip switched and he proceeded to become one of the top pitchers in baseball over the second half, posting a 2.03 ERA with 92 Ks and just a .165 BA allowed in 80 innings. Draft him accordingly
