How many SVs usually wins a Roto league?

12 team...

Just wondering...I don't remember what has happened in the past. Awful long-term memory. I'm trying to see if I should move a couple of guys around. I've currently got 49 (Benitez, Graves, Cordero)...and have also stashed away LaTroy and Marte.

Well just assume 3 closers on each team, and then an average of 30 saves or so for each closer. 30x3=90. You've got some people that will have 4 or 5 closers. 120+ should keep you up top.

you can't have three closers per team in a 12 team league -- that would be 36 closers ...

The top teams in saves will have at least three, but thanks for playing.

Yes you do assume 3 per team when you are trying to win the Saves category. While not every team can have 3, the ones that are competitive in saves most certainly will have 3, maybe even 4 closers. Meanwhile some teams will do away with closers completely and have 0 and go for ERA/WHIP.

Thanks. Baseballer is right...because my question was if I wanted to win...I only want to finish high enough (1 or 2 pts won't matter all that much), so 4 closers should do the trick. I'm just hoping that Marte or Hawkins end up with the role.

I looked at my post you're right, I said 3 closers per team. My mistake, I did mean AT LEAST 3 closers per team for those that will be competing for saves. Personally, I like to have 4 or 5, there isn't a league that I'm not winning in saves.
