Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw to start on opening day

Per Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Clayton Kershaw will be the starting pitcher for opening day against the San Francisco Giants.

What It Means:

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but it is nice to see confirmation that the ace pitcher is healthy and ready for the start of the season. This news should cement his status as a top pick in fantasy drafts this year.

Kershaw is projected for a 3.50 ERA, with 181 strikeouts, 39 walks and 14 wins to 9 losses. He'll be a top fantasy option yet again in 2020.
