Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is expected to make his third straight Opening Day start this year, followed by SPs Bud Norris and Matt Wisler. SPs Williams Perez and Manny Banuelos are the top candidates for the final two rotation spots, along with SPs Aaron Blair, Sean Newcomb, Tyrell Jenkins and Lucas Sims. SPs Kyle Kendrick or Jhoulys Chacin are veterans who might make more sense.
Fantasy Tip: The Braves are clearly in rebuilding mode, and this is one of the weaker starting rotations in the bigs to begin the year. Teheran has value as a sleeper in mixed leagues, but all the others have major questions and are better left to those in NL-only leagues.
