2020 Fantasy Outlook
Nova provided some real-life value as an innings eater for the White Sox last season, chewing up 187 frames, 10th most in the American League. The veteran righty was able to keep his home-run rate right around 1.4 HR/9 where he'd been the prior two seasons -- no small feat with the reduced-drag ball in play. Nova continued to do a good job limiting free passes (5.8 BB%) and when it was all said and done, he was worth two wins above replacement by FanGraphs' WAR. Unfortunately, his fantasy utility did not match up as his 14.1 K% -- the second-lowest mark among qualified starters -- made him exceedingly tough to deploy in mixed-league formats. He remains in the weak AL Central after signing a one-year deal with the Tigers. The lack of dominance will keep him on the waiver wire in most leagues, but Nova will inevitably be streamed by a few 15-team owners looking to capitalize on favorable two-start weeks.
