Fantasy Impact:

It's fine for Kimbrel to ask for six years, but he's unlikely to see that type of deal even as one of the best arms on the market. He's older than both Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen, and each of those All-Star closers were limited to five years with their latest deals. Even so, Kimbrel should see a nice payday and remain a closer with his new team which is all that matters to fantasy owners at this point. His ultimate fantasy value for 2019 will depend on where he lands this winter.
