Notes 
 In a regular season, Hader would be the first reliever taken. However, with just 60 games this year and a less-than-good rotation, the Brewers could deploy Hader in a swing-man role in the seventh and eighth inning, and turn to Corey Knebel in the ninth.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Is Jose Berrios overrated a little bit every year? Yeah, definitely. Berrios can be inconsistent from start to start, and you want more when you watch him pitch and he's on. That said, while he may not be an ace, he's one hell of an SP2 to have on your roster. You want guys who are going to give you 200 innings and a good strikeout rate. Berrios checks those boxes, even with the occasional bad start.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hader throws his fastball about 83 percent of the time and batters just can't hit it. They bat .167 against with a miniscule .275 wOBA and there's just no reason to expect that to change. Thus, his nearly 50 percent strikeout rate is likely here to stay, and that makes Hader the top reliever to draft in fantasy, even if his occasional multi-inning role means he won't get every save chance.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Berrios reached 200 innings but didn't really take the step forward that most fantasy owners had hoped for. His strikeout rate dropped, his WHIP increased, and batters made better contact. Still, Berrios was a pitcher who fantasy owners could start each and every time out, contributed well in wins, and rarely walked batters. When you add it all up, Berrios remains a starter that fantasy owners should covet, but perhaps temper expectations until he shows that he's ready to take that next step.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 If you play in a league where saves are at a premium it make sense to be aggressive on Hader, who struck out 138 batters last year
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Has yet to develop into his ace potential but is a solid SP3 for now
