Profile: Kontos continued the trend of far outpacing his peripherals in 2016 with a 2.53 ERA despite his 4.66 xFIP. While his 16.2% strikeout rate and 9.3% walk rates aren’t too enticing, Kontos did maintain a 10.1% swinging-strike rate in 2016. With that in mind, there could be a rebound toward 2013 levels, when he struck out nearly 20% of batters. Even so, Kontos will not be fantasy relevant in 2017, as Mark Melancon has signed in San Francisco and Derek Law, Hunter Strickland, and Will Smith are ahead of him on the depth chart. (Joe Douglas)

The Quick Opinion: Kontos is not fantasy relevant unless you play in a league that gives points for generic middle relievers who play in the Bay.
