2021 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: BE CAREFUL WITH DINELSON LAMET

Now that's not good.  San Diego Padres fireballing starter Dinelson Lamet admitted to reporters on Saturday that doctors informed him the likelihood of him tearing a ligament in his elbow and being forced to undergo a second Tommy John surgery if he kept pitching through the end of last season.  Given that Lamet throws 100-mph, this is not good news to hear at all and it pumps the breaks in this space in terms of targeting him in drafts.  We have always been big boosters of Lamet given his massive strikeout ability and spacious home ballpark when combined give off the aura of a future fantasy baseball ace.  While Lamet is capable of reaching that level in 2021, his draft price has risen under all the recent hype to the point that he carries some significant risk.  So while we wouldn't avoid Lamet altogether, we are only looking here if he can be had for your SP 3 at most.
