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.

Mark Melancon allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts over two innings Tuesday against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has been lights-out so far this spring. He and Will Smith should get the late-inning work this year.
