Profile: Once a low-end innings-eater, Mike Leake's fantasy relevance has dissipated with the league-wide surge in strikeout rates. Leake relies on managing contact and stranding runners for success - in 2016, a tightrope on which he walked and from which he fell. He should threaten to pitch 180 to 200 innings once more, but they'll be sub-par at best. He's the last pitcher you take in NL-only drafts on a good day. (Alex Chamberlain)

The Quick Opinion: Mike Leake's fantasy relevance in mixed leagues has come and gone, but his relative health combined with a modest bounceback could make him a lackluster but still minimally valuable NL-only starting pitcher.
