2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings (NL)

Expert Consensus Ranking (38 of 44 Experts) -
Rank Player (Team, Position) Overall Notes
1 Josh Hader (MIL - RP) 36 32.0 -4.0
 
2 Kirby Yates (SD - RP) 41 37.0 -4.0
 
3 Kenley Jansen (LAD - RP) 54 49.0 -5.0
 
4 Edwin Diaz (NYM - RP) 55 57.0 +2.0
Diaz is clearly an exceptional talent as demonstrated by his insane 2018 campaign, but we are talking about a 10th round pick who didn't even manage to finish among the top 50 relievers last season. Sure, the 5.59 ERA and 1.38 WHIP are likely to come down but will it happen long enough to hold onto the closer job all year?
5 Craig Kimbrel (CHC - RP) 67 63.0 -4.0
 
6 Raisel Iglesias (CIN - RP) 70 62.0 -8.0
 
7 Hector Neris (PHI - RP) 71 64.0 -7.0
 
8 Brandon Woodruff (MIL - SP,RP) 49 45.0 -4.0
 
9 Sean Doolittle (WSH - RP) 81 90.0 +9.0
Doolittle came on strong during the playoffs and we've seen him dominate before but the full picture of his 2019 season was one of mediocrity. Should he return to that rate, he may be the first closer to lose his job with Daniel Hudson closely lurking behind.
10 Archie Bradley (ARI - RP) 82 76.0 -6.0
 
11 Max Fried (ATL - SP,RP) 68 61.0 -7.0
 
12 Giovanny Gallegos (STL - RP) 87 82.0 -5.0
 
13 Keone Kela (PIT - RP) 89 98.0 +9.0
 
14 Julio Urias (LAD - SP,RP) 74 72.0 -2.0
 
15 Carlos Martinez (STL - SP,RP) 94 78.0 -16.0
 
16 Mark Melancon (ATL - RP) 105 105.0
 
17 Will Smith (ATL - RP) 99 80.0 -19.0
 
18 Seth Lugo (NYM - RP) 128 125.0 -3.0
 
19 Emilio Pagan (SD - RP) 123 135.0 +12.0
 
20 Scott Oberg (COL - RP) 137 139.0 +2.0
 
21 Adrian Houser (MIL - SP,RP) 131 121.0 -10.0
 
22 Ross Stripling (LAD - SP,RP) 139 171.0 +32.0
When the Dodgers traded Stripling, he soared up draft boards but now that the deal was canceled, he may very well return to the bullpen. We've seen this before though, and he is likely to end up with 100+ great innings regardless. With his pricetag being what it is, fantasy owners are getting a downright steal because of the lofty upside.
23 Brandon Kintzler (MIA - RP) 135 132.0 -3.0
 
24 Dustin May (LAD - SP,RP) 138 137.0 -1.0
 
25 Dellin Betances (NYM - RP) 148 158.0 +10.0
 
26 Blake Treinen (LAD - RP) 181 183.0 +2.0
 
27 Tony Watson (SF - RP) 161 159.0 -2.0
 
28 Wade Davis (COL - RP) 154 156.0 +2.0
 
29 Daniel Hudson (WSH - RP) 155 166.0 +11.0
 
30 Dakota Hudson (STL - SP,RP) 163 120.0 -43.0
 
31 Kevin Gausman (SF - SP,RP) 169 193.0 +24.0
 
32 Josh Lindblom (MIL - SP,RP) 167 182.0 +15.0
 
33 Andres Munoz (SD - RP) 172 230.0 +58.0
 
34 Freddy Peralta (MIL - SP,RP) 186 185.0 -1.0
 
35 Drew Pomeranz (SD - SP,RP) 162 178.0 +16.0
 
36 Will Harris (WSH - RP) 238 176.0 -62.0
 
37 Andrew Miller (STL - RP) 176 191.0 +15.0
 
38 Corey Knebel (MIL - RP) 189 190.0 +1.0
 
39 Ryne Stanek (MIA - SP,RP) 212 204.0 -8.0
 
40 Matt Strahm (SD - SP,RP) 205 334.0 +129.0
 
41 Kwang-Hyun Kim (STL - RP) 158 172.0 +14.0
 
42 Kyle Crick (PIT - RP) 200 305.0 +105.0
 
43 Ryan Helsley (STL - SP,RP) 218 217.0 -1.0
 
44 Alex Reyes (STL - SP,RP) MiLB 219 218.0 -1.0
With Miles Mikolas now dealing with a forearm injury, it seems likely that he will miss some time or even be shut down. That leaves the final spot up for grabs between Kwang-Hyun Kim, Reyes, and Daniel Ponce de Leon. Among them, Kim is considered the frontrunner, but Reyes is far and away the most talented. In fact, he has been receiving rave reviews from the coaching staff already and they've said all winter that they'd love to have him in the rotation if he was healthy and his velocity was back to where it should be. If Reyes wins this job, he could be the breakout ace of the year for fantasy teams.
