I know Zach Britton was great and all, but Aroldis Chapman is the top closer on the board. ADPs agree … It’s easy to love Real Life Andrew Miller. But Fantasy Andrew Miller is carrying a ninth-round ADP without a closer’s job. I know the guy has a 1.82 ERA with a 0.78 WHIP and a crazy-high K rate over the last three seasons, but saves still matter in most leagues, and he might not get many … Kelvin Herrera grabs the closer baton for the Royals, and he’ll run with it. Wade Davis got 45 saves last season in the same role, while the Davis/Greg Holland combo had 49 in 2015 … Be wary of Jeurys Familla, who might serve a suspension for domestic violence. Addison Reed would be next in line … Late in the game, I’ll be targeting Corey Knebel, Cam Bedrosian and Dan Hudson. Knebel is likely to have his team’s Opening Day closer job, while Bedrosian is a maybe and Hudson looms as a closer-in-waiting for the Pirates.
