I’m going to make an unpopular argument here. This only applies to category leagues, so take it with a grain of rice. But I think the argument can be made for taking a closer between the 11th and 12th rounds (12-team standard league). There are so few safe closers that if your league counts saves, WHIP and ERA, getting a Brian Wilson, Neftali Feliz, Heath Bell, Mariano Rivera and Joakim Soria type in the 11th round is a safe source of 40 saves. Now, in my personal draft plans, I have Joe Nathan, Andrew Bailey, and Carlos Marmol in that tier, but those are guys you can get a couple rounds later. If you can get Wilson and Bailey in the 11th and 13th round, then you can forget about saves the next ten and feel good you will get 70 saves from those two. Then grab a guy like Drew Storen or John Axford late, and I’d say you have 100 saves at the end of the season. I’m not saying go grab a closer in the fifth. But the consensus among fantasy advisors is to wait on closers until all other positions are solidified. You might be able to own saves and give yourself a major advantage in ERA and WHIP.
