Darvish playing in the AL and having now had a year to be examined by hitters has all the makings to be figured out and a 4.4Era with a 1.3Whip. Pitchers are always going to be ranked a round to 3rounds lower than what many may feel they should be ranked just because Batters typically provide more in Fantasy value over a season. Add to it among top 20 Prospects, youre more than 50% on SPs and the replacement of an injured pitcher is lying in the waits while a replacement for a top 10position player is a replacement level player. which is a 25-40level position player.
Shields I think, will prosper in the Central. But, owners got to sit through his substandard season last year which leaves a bad taste in their mouths and unwilling to draft/rank him as high. So, you're right there. MLB has a bunch of young talent moving in it's a great time to own a fantasy team the top 150players are much better than the top 150players of 4years ago.
