2018 Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitcher Rankings

We’ve gone around the diamond, we’ve gone over starting pitchers and now it’s time for the relief pitchers. As always there are the big guns up top in Kenley Jansen, Craig Kimbrel and Aroldis Chapman. After the Big 3, there are some solid arms that should have a “safe” role. But after that it gets murky with either bad situations/teams and it makes decisions tough. In recent years it was always a good idea to wait on saves. Like last year with the recommendation of Alex Colome. This year there will be late round darlings, but there are also a ton of jobs that will change frequently heading into drafts. In my opinion you either player the relief pitcher/waiver wire game, or you get 2 of the Top 8-10 and relax. Here are the early 2018 Fantasy Baseball Relief Pitcher Rankings.
