Cant go wrong with that. Anything in the mid-teens or lower is great value.
Its the guys who end up spazzing and drafting him around 10 as a #3, are the ones who are really at risk of being burned.

I disagree completely. Going after a high upside guy in round 10 is not going to hurt you nearly as much as it could help you. As long as you don't take all high risk/high reward guys and balance it out a bit, then taking a shot on a very high reward guy in round 10 is pretty much exactly what you should do. Especially if already have 2 legit SP ahead of him.

I dunno. Im not comfortable drafting a guy to be my #3 who by all accounts will not exceed ~160 innings this year. In roto maybe thats a solid risk to take because you can make up the innings with MR's or streamed SP at the end of the year.
But in H2H i feel like its a mistake. SO much value lost when your #3 is only throwing 5-6 innings per start, and then doesn't pitch at all for you in the playoffs.
Maybe Im biased after getting burned with Moore last year... or maybe I just learned my lesson.

Ive been pretty vocal about avoiding Salazar since the beginning, and even so still ended up with him on one team (Roto) when he fell to the 13th rd, ~4 rounds after his ADP at the time, and still felt like it was a mistake taking him there.
