The value of star closers, IMO, is simply as trade bait to those who overvalue star closers. That's a cornerstone of my Fantasy strategy that I have won with consistently. Thoughts?
in the middle of the season, closers are the one position where you can always get good trade value - overloading on closers at the start of the year, i.e. getting marginal ones, is always a great strategy. last year, guys like aardsma, franklin, qualls , downs emerged (downs was solid until his injury - but I trade him for holliday before that and holliday was crapping out in oakland).

there's a guy in my roto league who overloaded on closers in the draft. he took 8 closers (a lot of big names, but also aardsma and dotel) and 2 starters (Hanson and E. Jackson).
But I don't get it.
the way I see it...the pressure is on him to swing a lot of good deals fairly soon. not that easy to do in a standard roto league.
me, I'm the opposite: 9 starters and 2 closers. I can add a closer or two at my leisure, no pressure. even off the wire, they'll be there.
meanwhile I can rack up W and K with starters.
