Fantasy Baseball: 2019 RP Rankings

Pitching in general is always a delicate balance to work out when draft season comes around. RP more so than anything because they are the only contributor to one out of the 10 categories. However, get it wrong and they can start to do damage to your other four pitching categories.

It is now almost a yearly situation where my approach to relief pitchers changes. Right now the approach I have is to try and get one solid option, who is virtually considered a lock for saves. After that then I will look to make up the other spots with more questionable guys when it comes to saves opportunities. At that point in becomes a balance between the talented guys with lesser shots to close, and the less talented pitchers with more chance to get saves. Striking the right balance there is key.
