Notes 
 Despite Melancon plainly not being the best reliever on his team, he'll likely enter the 2020 season as the Braves' closer. Melancon still has decent control, but the days of being a lockdown option are long gone. Draft him as a back-end closer, and understand that Will Smith will be looking over his shoulder all year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Smith somehow stayed in San Francisco all season and held the closer's role all year, putting up his usual terrific numbers. He'll now move to Atlanta where early indications are that he'll set up for Mark Melancon. Smith's numbers and potential opportunity to close down the line make him worth drafting in all formats, though again, don't expect him to close right away.
