Don't take too much stock in this.
I think it'll help him some. Like Jon Garland last year feeding off of the other #5 starters, I think Felix going against the other teams' worst starter is a good thing for Felix. Up his wins a little.
Being a #5 hurts fantasy value everytime. You lose starts every time the team gets a day off, skipping the 5 hole. And after the 1st 2 weeks of the season, the spot in order has little relevance on who you might face, as every teams rotation schedule has been altered by week 3, due to off days. Fantasy wise, it's a negative.
