Nick Anderson's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

The former NAIA pitcher made his debut last season and struck out 110 batters in 65 IP between the Marlins and Rays. Anderson was particularly impressive following his trade to Tampa, where he had a 2.11 ERA and 41 Ks to just 2 BBS in 21.1 IP. The Rays have mixed and matched relievers in the closing role, but Anderson should get an opportunity to be the full time closer after the Rays traded Emilio Pagan. If Anderson is the true closer, he should have great value next season.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Nick Anderson as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 278.62 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Edwin Diaz and ahead of Brandon Workman.

He is ranked above Edwin Diaz but behind Archie Bradley the rest of the week. Week 2 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#11). He is projected for 9.89 fantasy points.
