Notes 
 We know that Anderson should be the locked-in closer for the Rays, but we also know how the Rays work. Proceed with caution.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Please, for the love of all things good in the world (few things, as it turns out), get Marquez out of Colorado. It turns out even he can't defeat Coors Field.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Anderson was exceptional with the Rays, though Emilio Pagan got the vast majority of the save chances. With Pagan now out of the way, Anderson may have the chance to lead a committee of Diego Castillo and Jose Alvarado. Even if he doesn't get the majority of the save chances, if Anderson pitches like he did with the Rays last year (52.6% strikeout rate), he'll be worth owning no matter what.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Marquez seemed like the rare pitcher who could conquer Coors Field, 2019 showed otherwise. Marquez pitched to a 3.67 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP on the road, but a 6.26 ERA and 1.55 WHIP at home. Can he overcome the thin air this year? It's possible, but history is littered with pitchers who managed to buck the trend for one year only to fail to do so again. Marquez has the skill, but his home park make it seem unlikely he can provide quality value.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Marquez would likely be a top 25 arm if he didn't pitch half his games in Coors. However, he is still a great 4th or 5th starter for your fantasy rotation as he has nasty stuff and will be a force on the road.
