I'm sure you know that in rotisserie, you're better off not punting any category. Drafting setup players is better after all the save chances are gone. There is no evidence to suggest that League will be pulled this year. I think you are better off the way you went.
While I agree on not punting categories, relief pitching for me is all about drafting the talent and not the role. Last year, in my 14 teamer - I drafted Chapman, Romo, Addison Reed and Jansen. Turned out ok... Just my style of play. I think at least 1/3 of closers will lose their jobs, so I draft the arm not "position"...
I think thats a valid strategy. I think it would also depend on how deep your rosters are. If you bench/rosters are shallow I can see why you wouldn't want to wait around for the "talent" to get the job
Last year if you took Jansen it worked out well for the most part because his talent played out. The guy who drafted Guerra and just said I want the guy who will get me saves probably wasn't so happy.
Conversely if you drafted Vinnie Pestano hoping his talent would play out, it did not turn out as well.
I guess the answer is there is no right answer, lol.
