Notes 
 New Reds manager David Bell has indicated that Iglesias is "going to pitch in the most important spots in the game," whether it is the ninth inning or earlier. Bell added that "[a] lot of times it's going to be in that closing role." In actuality, that may not be much of a change from past seasons for Iglesias, who has entered in the eighth inning in 43 of his 129 appearances (33 percent) over the last two seasons. He didn't amass more than 30 saves either year, but still finished as a top-12 reliever in standard 5
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
You may feel comfortable with the fact that Wade Davis is incredible, but beware of Coors. The saves will come, but chances are high that his ratios will lag behind what you are looking for in a closer. At his current ADP, you will almost certainly be able to wait and snag a better option.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Reds manager David Bell said he wants to use Iglesias when a high-leverage situation arises rather than limiting his best reliever to the ninth. He could serve a role reminiscent to Josh Hader, which makes the southpaw unlikely to record another 30 saves. Yet he can still contribute if scattering some saves and wins with a high strikeout tally and low ERA over 70-75 frames. Move him down the rankings in standard-scoring leagues, but don't dismiss him entirely.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Davis was shaky at times in his first season in Colorado, but he led the National League with 43 saves, and a strong 10.74 K/9 and 1.06 WHIP offset his bloated 4.13 ERA. Expect his ERA and WHIP to move closer to his career marks of 3.50 and 1.25, respectively, though each may be a bit higher because of the Coors Field effect. Barring a total collapse, Davis should have plenty of job security and again be a top-20 fantasy closer.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Iglesias has been one of the better closers over the past two seasons with 58 saves and 172 Ks, but the Reds have been suggesting that he might not be the every day closer this year. The Ks and ratios would still be good enough to own even if he didn't get any saves, but this undoubtedly causes a hit in his overall fantasy value.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It only takes one bad week to torpedo a reliever's season. Davis relinquished eight runs in three outings from Aug. 2-9, raising his ERA from 4.20 to 5.51. He recovered back to 4.13 by allowing one run over his last 18 innings, but the final line remains far too high for a pricey reliever. Despite looking more like his dominant self down the stretch, diminished velocity and a putrid 49.4% first-pitch strike rate pose major problems. The Rockies kept him in the ninth all season over the clearly superior Adam Ottavino, who signed with the Yankees, so job security makes Davis one of few "saves are saves" picks still left on the table.
