Hanrahan
Lidge

I'm really down on closers in head to head dynasty formats. There's just so much turnover at the role that it never seems like a great investment to me, particularly in leagues where holds aren't a part of the scoring where you can recoup some value if they become a middle reliever.


I like:

Matt Garza
Jordan Zimmerman
Ian Stewart
Adam Jones
Ian Kennedy

Probably in that order. I'd have Adam Jones higher but you already have 4 outfielders so he doesn't necessarily fit into your roster at this point. I think Garza is highly underrated because of the switch to Wrigley, so I have him at the top. Zimmerman is now over 18 months removed from Tommy John surgery so hopefully we'll see the best out of him, but he obviously comes with some risk because of that.
