Notes 
 The Reds have messed around with Iglesias in the past as far as keeping him in the closer's role, but all signs point to him staying there this year. He's a nice value pick.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Alex Fast loves Matthew Boyd, so I, in turn, love Matthew Boyd. He's in a fantastic park, but he still gave up far too many homers and won't win many games with the Tigers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Iglesias walked fewer and struck out more batters than ever, winding up with 34 saves last year. And yet it always felt like he was on the precipice of losing his job as the closer, particularly in light of his whopping 12 losses. Iglesias is still under control for two more seasons and, so long as he can continue to pitch relatively effectively, should be able to hold down the ninth-inning job in 2020. But there should be at least some trepidation among fantasy owners in light of his ups and downs last year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  If the ball gets dejuiced, there may be no player more positively impacted than Matt Boyd. Boyd was destroyed by the long ball in 2019, and if he can cut that rate in half or even by a quarter, we may have a solid SP2 for fantasy purposes.
