It’s playoff time for some in head-to-head leagues. Last week to make moves in the standing in the roto ranks for others. Regardless, we all need closer help.

The Hurt Ones

  • Ken Giles

Ken Giles is undergoing Tommy John surgery. This is horrible news for one of my favorite upside closers coming into the year. Giles is likely to miss all of 2021. He is also a free agent this winter. His dynasty value takes a major hit.

The Safe Ones

  • Josh Hader
  • Kenley Jansen
  • Liam Hendriks
  • Brad Hand
  • Aroldis Chapman
  • Alex Colome
  • Mark Melancon
  • Ryan Pressly
  • Rafael Montero

The Mostly Safe

  • Taylor Rogers
  • Raisel Iglesias
  • Trevor Rosenthal
  • Greg Holland
  • Brandon Kintzler
  • Daniel Bard
  • Edwin Diaz
  • Stefan Crichton

The Committee Members

  • Nick Anderson
  • Diego Castillo
  • Jeremy Jeffress
  • Craig Kimbrel
  • Anthony Bass
  • Rafael Dolis
  • Andrew Miller
  • Alex Reyes
  • Tony Watson
  • Tyler Rogers
  • Yohan Ramirez
  • Yoshihisa Hirano
  • Ty Buttrey
  • Felix Pena
  • Matt Andriese
  • Mike Mayers
  • Cesar Valdez
  • Hunter Harvey
  • Gregory Soto
  • Bryan Garcia

Rafael Dolis (30% rostered) has yet to pitch since a knee injury on Friday. Anthony Bass (36% rostered) could grab a couple more saves over the final days of the season.

The Risky Business

  • Hector Neris
  • Daniel Hudson
  • Matt Barnes
  • Richard Rodriguez

Hector Neris (63% rostered) is back as the Phillies closer. Pick him up.

The Next In Line

  • Archie Bradley
  • Amir Garrett
  • Sergio Romo
  • Mychal Givens
  • Yimi Garcia
  • Blake Treinen
