There are two early mock draft results out there on the interwebs, one on Fangraphs' Rotographs site and another from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA), both worth checking out.

Gio went 47 at Fangraphs and 86 in FSTA (where pitching went very late). He seems to be overshadowed by Strasburg and maybe has some non-believers out there. I think he'll see some regression. The key will be repeating his lowered walk rate.

You guys buying into Gio ?

I don't think he's going to fall much worse than 15th best SP this year, which is still totally fine... Could see some walk regression...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I probably won't be buying but I am don't but pitchers early very often and if I do, I usually am only getting elite guys. I do think Gonzalez can get close to a repeat although some regressions should be expected. Really comes down to the wins IMO. I just don't think he wins 21 games again so hopefully people aren't buying him thinking that is repeatable. Everything else looks alright. K/9 has been up three years in a row. BB/9 has been down three years in a row (although last year it dropped further than it had before but that could also be him pitching in the NL)

In an RCL league, how late are you waiting on pitching? Obviously things change draft by draft, but philosophically, when are you jumping on an SP? 4th round? 7-8th? Later?

He is now linked to PEDs.

Uh oh, Gio. He's got deep ties to Miami. Not surprised to find him on that list. This could get ugly. Interesting how PEDs seemed to help Gio and Bartolo throw strikes. Guess you have confidence and a little improvement in velocity, you trust your stuff and pound the zone.
