Josh James's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

James wasn’t very consistent last season and finished 2019 with a 4.70 ERA but did have 100 Ks in 61.1 IP. Following the losses of Gerrit Cole and Wade Miley, James will compete for a spot in the rotation this season. James will have to limit the earned runs, but at 14.7 Ks/9 with a very good fastball, he could be a steal in fantasy this season.
