Notes 
 Lugo is a great option if you're looking to target middle relivers who can offer you strikeouts and good ratios.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Houser looked good in a small sample last year, and his RP eligibility helps him in points leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lugo has been a quality reliever for two seasons now, and he found his way into the closer's role late last year. Edwin Diaz should have the ninth-inning role for the Mets to start, but if he struggles again, Lugo could sneak back into the job. Lugo is worth drafting for his ratios alone, but the potential for saves makes him an ideal candidate for a late-round selection.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Houser has an elite fastball, which he relies on heavily and against which batters hit just .203 last season. Whether he can continue to succeed with just one very good pitch is an open question, but considering his FIP and xFIP fully supported his 3.72 ERA, it's entirely possible. Overall, Houser should provide strikeouts without hurting you elsewhere, so he's an ideal late-round add.
