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
If you want to invest in a closer but don't want one of the top-priced guys, you could do far worse than Roberto Osuna, who is my No. 1 reliever. He's done that thing that managers love where he's "proven himself" able to handle the late-inning work, and he pitches for one of the best teams in the league, which means the saves should be there. This is a great spot to dip your toes into the saves category.
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
Osuna may not be quite the pitcher he was in his absolute prime, but he's not far off. He has yet to have a season in the majors with a WHIP above 1.00, and his strikeout rate has rebounded to above-average, if not elite, levels. He has immense job security on an excellent team and should once again provide all the numbers you could want from a closer. Draft him with confidence.
