Notes 
 Iglesias bounced back from a sub-par 2019 to post an excellent 2020 season, with a 2.74 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP, and the lowest walk rate of his career. He'll now move to the Angels where he'll keep his role as a closer. Iglesias's numbers should be solid as usual, and his precise value should hinge on whether the Angels use him in more of a multi-inning role like the Reds historically did (which limited Iglesias's save totals), or deploy him as a more traditional ninth-inning option. Either way, Iglesias will be the Angels' stopper, and hence, should be drafted as a strong top-10 RP option.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Playoffs included, Anderson's final 2020 stat line was 51 innings, 65 strikeouts, a 1.59 ERA, and a 1.10 WHIP. Backed up by a strong prospect pedigree, Anderson was extremely impressive in his first taste of the big leagues. He never got shelled in any start and gave up just one homer all season. His regular season CSW (called strike plus whiff rate) compated similarly to Blake Snell and Walker Buehler at 30.8%. The concerns with his '21 fantasy value are a 4.2 BB/9 and an innings limit. While valid, Anderson is talented enough to still warrant excitement as a top 25-30 SP.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
  After rising through the minor leagues, Anderson had an excellent debut season with the Braves in 2020, pitching to a 1.95 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with a 29.7% strikeout rate. He was even better in four postseason starts, allowing just two runs over 18 2/3 innings while striking out 24. Anderson led all starters in barrel rate (just 1.2%), and has an excellent fastball, curveball, and changeup. His control isn't elite, but his raw stuff and prospect pedigree suggest that his 2020 season was no fluke. Draft him with confidence as a No. 2 starter.
