Notes 
 Gallegos is a perfect guy to take as your RP 2 late in drafts. The job should be his.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Kennedy was an afterthought on draft day last year, but a run of save chances in the middle of the summer boosted him to 30 saves. His peripherals didn't hurt fantasy owners and his strikeout numbers were solid, making Kennedy the poster child for the "wait on saves" crowd. In the final year of his deal, he'll again open as the closer for the Royals, but his chances of being dealt mid-season are extremely high. Draft him, of course, but don't bank on much more than 15 saves or so.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.
