#1 waiver priority on Jansen?

Postby mmonteath » Sat Apr 27, 2013 1:35 pm

I could use one more closer (currently have Rodney and Street) and Kenley Jansen and Axford were both dropped in my 12 team league. I have an open spot on my roster but is Jansen worth my #1 waiver priority in a 12 team roto league that I am currently 1st in?

- Axford will get the job back from Henderson at some point supposedly
- League seems to be struggling lately giving up a run in 4 of his last 5 innings.

I would save a #1 waiver. Players have been dropping guys like V. Martinez and J. Hayward. I think these are more #1 waiver speed.

Closers and RP situations are revolving doors. It's not a set thing Jansen will be the closer for long even if he does well, or he could struggle one month down the road and lose the Job and u lost ur #1 waiver. I would use it on a more set player

Should I drop League to roster Axford right now ? Or a starter in Kyle Kendrick (who is RP elligible) ? and forego the saves?
