Notes 
 Doolittle is firmly established as the Nationals' closer heading into 2019, and he's proven to be an elite one when healthy. Unfortunately, injuries have been a frequent concern for Doolittle, which helps explain why the Nationals acquired two other relievers with closing experience in Trever Rosenthal and Kyle Barraclough.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
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
 Doolittle could be a top-five closer in a full season. He posted a 1.60 ERA, 60 strikeouts, six walks, and 25 saves in 45 innings. Anyone will need a microscope to see his 0.60 WHIP. Yet injuries are par for the course, as the 32-year-old has averaged 37 innings over the past four seasons. The elite skills-and steady ninth-inning role on a playoff contender-make Doolittle a borderline top-10 closer despite the likelihood of missed time.
Andrew Gould - 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
 Doolittle only had 25 saves and 60 strikeouts last year, but he had an absurd 0.600 WHIP. That isn't a typo. With a full season, don't be surprised when Doolittle finishes in the elite tier of fantasy closers.
Bobby Sylvester - 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.
