Profile: Whatever glimpse of promise Owens showed in 2015 quickly evaporated in five wildly mediocre 2016 starts. One atrocious start in particular ruined the lot, but he walked almost as many hitters as he struck out and failed to complete five innings in more than half his starts. Hitters continued to tee off on him. Only his curve effectively muted the opposition, yet it didn't record a single swinging strike - not exactly a recipe for success. He eventually departed the rotation only to return after the All-Star break and deliver consecutive six-strikeout starts. They conveniently coincided with increased reliance on his four-seam usage and decision to abandon his sinker. Yet it's his changeup that delivered all the damage in those starts, inducing swinging strikes 38% of the time. Between his whiff-happy change and worm-killing curve, it seems his secondary pitches are the key to unlocking future success. There's promise there — the scouting reports said so, and he's still only 24 — but he'll need to throw the ball in the zone. There's nowhere to go but up at this point, and Owens should have an opportunity to figure things out a little more. It's just that he's likely the number-six starter behind Eduardo Rodriguez, capping his potential until further notice. Owens has little fantasy value in redraft leagues but is still worth keeping an eye on in dynasty formats. (Alex Chamberlain)

The Quick Opinion: Still young and presumably still heralded, Owens has a lot of figuring out to do. Yet figuring out, he seems to be doing, and he now has nowhere to go but up. He has little foreseeable value in redraft leagues but is still worth a dynasty stash.
