Notes 
 Kimbrel waited to sign until months into the season, and the results weren't pretty. He battled injury and was entirely ineffective, pitching to an 8.10 ERA and walking more than five batters per nine innings. Whether the complete lack of control was a continuing trend or just due to rust/injuries. But, either way, the price on Kimbrel should be the cheapest in years, and if you're waiting on saves, he's as good an option to take a chance on as anyone.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  If the ball gets dejuiced, there may be no player more positively impacted than Matt Boyd. Boyd was destroyed by the long ball in 2019, and if he can cut that rate in half or even by a quarter, we may have a solid SP2 for fantasy purposes.
