DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do I really care about saves enough to keep rostering both Nate Jones and Daniel Webb? Drop one or both? (16team dynasty, 40 man rosters)
(Always Be Closing from Chicago)
Yes, in that type of league both players should be rostered. I think Jones is better, but Lindstrom can't be long for the role and there's always the chance Webb grabs the job next week and never looks back. So Webb. But it's a coin toss. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)better speculative add for saves down the road...Daniel Webb or Betances?
(Brian from MA)
Webb bc of opportunity (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)I've been getting crushed by injuries early. I'm in a 15 team mixed where my only healthy closer left is Latroy Hawkins, yeah I know. There are no closers on waivers and most of the really good closers in waiting are taken. I'm looking at names like A.J Ramos, Jake McGee and Edward Mujica. If you're speculating on future saves are there any under the radar options that people might not be that familiar with? Thanks.
(KcDozer from Florida)
Starting to think there are no healthy relievers left. I would say Cody Allen but Bret Sayre has blown him up already. Daniel Webb on the White Sox should get a look if Matt Lindstrom fails in Nate Jonesí absence. Jeurys Familia has his issues and isnít exactly holding it down this year but he still throws hard and has a slider which is the requisite closer starting kit. Dellin Betances can get a look, there are a few names out there. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is it time to say goodbye to Moose Tacos. I have him as Donaldson insurance in a 14 team points league. Should i drop him for Blackmon or Jim Henderson? My OF are Puig Martin and Aoki. My RP are Jim Johnson Chavez and Benoit Cody Allen and Daniel Webb also available
(John Candelaria from Altoona)
Yeah you know, I think it's time to say goodbye to Moustakas. If all the guys getting saves are gone I'd probably add an offensive contributor in front of guys like Allen Henderson and Webb. Blackmon is an interesting name but dig a bit deeper and see what's up. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for a speculative closer play. Who do you prefer among Nate Jones, Daniel Webb, Ryan Webb, LeCure, Hoover, Betances, Joba and Alburquerque?
(Jake from Kalamazoo)
Nate Jones with Daniel Webb and Betances a close second and third. Closers are kind of imploding league wide right now and it's a very unstable position. I think the situation in Chicago is going to be really murky even when Jones comes back. I don't believe in Lindstrom and I think Webb could get a look. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a points league where SP RP dual eligibility is huge I am going with Jesse Chavez Jim Johnson and J Benoit in my 3 RP slots. Would you drop any for Daniel Webb, Cody Allen, Farquhar Ryan Cook David Carpenter or Chris Withrow? Scoring Saves (8) Holds (4) K (2) W (10) IP (2)

I really like Cody Allen as well as Withrow, so I might swap one of them in for Benoit. Withrow is my favorite of the group, but probably ranks last from a fantasy perspective given the longer odds of his finding saves. It depends on the size of your league, but Chavez could have a shorter shelf life of relevance if it's a shallow league, and the A's will likely be cautious with his workloads this year.

It's early to say anything with conviction obviously. It just came out that Nate Jones isn't 100% which is likely a factor in that situation. Sleeper on that team is Daniel Webb, though I think Belisario could do the job as well. I still think Jones gets the most saves at season's end. (Craig Goldstein)
