Notes 
 It was announced that Chapman tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, July 11th. With less than two weeks left until the regular season, it seems unlikely that he'll begin the year on the active roster. With that said, it remains unclear exactly how long he'll miss and given Chapman's potential, he shouldn't slip beyond the top 10 closers in drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Jansen finally reported to camp on Sunday, July 12, and revealed that he was delayed because he had tested positive for COVID-19. Dave Roberts stated that he expected Jansen to be ready for the regular season, which means he can be drafted as a top-10 closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Paying the premium for a closer isn't advised, because replicating that success from year to year - especially for breakout pitchers at the position - is tough to do. But when you have a closer who has been a top-tier option year after year, he's one of the few who are worth the investment. Chapman isn't the lights-out closer that he was in the past, but he's as safe of a bet that there is to finish top 3 at the position. That, alone, makes him worth the price.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's not the dominant force of yesteryear, but he's still a safe saves source in the shortened season.
