Relief Pitcher Preview 2.0 (06/26 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
Today on the show we're previewing the most volatile position in Fantasy Baseball... relief pitchers! Just to prove the volatility, how many closers do we think were the intended closer to start the year and were still there by the end of the season? What's our overall relief pitcher strategy in H2H vs. Roto (3:00 )? Does it change in a shortened season? Should we focus more on job security? ... We kick off our ADP review with Josh Hader, who is being drafted in the fifth round (9:00 ). How concerned should we be over Corey Knebel? Would we rather have Hader in the fifth round or Nick Anderson in the 12th (9:00 )? ... The next group features the top three closers in terms of job security: Kirby Yates, Aroldis Chapman, and Roberto Osuna (18:24 ). Should Osuna be ranked #1 this season? ... The next group is a tough one including Liam Hendriks, Kenley Jansen, Brad Hand, and Taylor Rogers (26:54 ). What's up with Brad Hand and can he fight off James Karinchak? ... Onto our sleepers, breakouts, and busts (31:24 )! Why is Ken Giles so disrespected? Can Gallegos breakout? Basically, nobody on the podcast is drafting Hader. ... Back to ADP review, this next group is very polarizing between Edwin Diaz, Giles, Hector Neris, Raisel Iglesias, and Craig Kimbrel (46:37 ). Target this group! ... Next up we have a group of low-end RP2s plus how are SPARPs looking this season (53:27 )? ... We wrap with some relievers who can help with ratios and holds in 2020 (1:03:45 )...
