Notes 
 If Hendriks' 2019 performance doesn't convince you to wait on closers, nothing will. An afterthought in drafts pitching behind Blake Treinen, Hendriks not only took the closer's role for the A's but also developed into one of the best relievers in the game. A velocity bump made his fastball nearly unhittable and he rarely gave up home runs. He'll be given the chance to repeat his performance, but whether he can is an entirely open question.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.
