Roto Imbeciles
Fantasy Baseball for the Roto Enthusiast
 Friday, January 18, 2019:

These are some of the SP's I really like this year in NL-only. Guys to keep an eye on. German Marquez, Jon Duplantier, Zack Godley, Chris Paddack, Touki Toussaint, Chris Archer, Joe Musgrove, and Joey Lucchesi. Not sure that all break camp with their team(s) but they could make a statement at some point during the '19 season. I liked Musgrove at this time last year and tried to grab him in my expert NL but he went for more than I could spend. Archer and Marquez are presently members of that staff and I own Lucchesi in 2 other leagues. Keep me posted if there are any other NL pitchers we should add or talk about.

I talked to a few guys in my expert NL league recently and they said (to a man) that they will stay away from Colorado SP's. I tried to mention that Marquez is the exception but they were having none of it! Marquez may not go on the cheap, as you said, but I can't see him going for what owners will pay for guys like Kyle Hendricks, Mike Foltynewicz, Jon Lester, and maybe even a guy like Zack Wheeler. After his start on June 29 Marquez's ERA/WHIP sat at 5.53/1.55. After that, with the exception of Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom, Marquez was the most effective pitcher in the NL. From June 30 until the end of the season Marquez ERA/WHIP was 2.47/0.95.
