Notes 
 Davis had a disastrous 2019 season, pitching to an 8.65 ERA and losing his closer's job. He'll enter 2020 back in the ninth-inning role but his leash will certainly be short with Scott Oberg waiting in the wings. Davis should likely be the last "closer" drafted.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
One of my guilty pleasures in the fantasy realm is drafting Kyle Gibson year after year. He is a solid SP who does a lot of things well, although the results don't always show that. If the Rangers can tap into his potential, like they did Lynn and Minor in 2019, he could be a steal at ADP.
