2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSER RANKINGS

The closers are last up on our first tour through the 2018 fantasy baseball position rankings and as always this group is filled with volatility.  Also there will likely be some changes from now until then so take this early list with a bit of a grain of salt.

1.  Kenley Jansen
2.  Craig Kimbrel
3.  Aroldis Chapman
4.  Wade Davis
5.  Cody Allen
6.  Corey Knebel
7.  Felipe Rivero
8.  Sean Doolittle
9.  Ken Giles
10. Brad Brach
11. Raisel Iglesias
12. Brad Hand
13. Edwin Diaz
14. Alex Colome
15. Roberto Osuna
16. Brandon Morrow
17. Jeurys Familia
18. Archie Bradley
19. Hector Neris
20. Kelvin Herrera
21. Arodys Vizcaino
22. Mark Melancon
23. Blake Parker
24. Shane Greene
25. Joakim Soria
26. Luke Gregerson/Tyler Lyons
27. Alex Claudio
28. Blake Treinen
29. Fernando Rodney
30. Brad Ziegler

 -Right now it is an open competition in St. Louis where Tyler Lyons and Luke Gregerson will likely battle it out unless the team signs Greg Holland which makes too much sense not to happen.
-Reason I have Alex Colome a bit lower than you would expect is that he figures to be traded at some point and it could be into a setup gig.  Also his numbers/rates did slip last season.
-Watch the New York Mets situation closely as Jeurys Familia has lost some bite off his stuff and a very capable A.J. Ramos is waiting to take over at a moment's notice.
-Mark Melancon was simply brutal last season, his K/9 continues to be mediocre, and his stuff is overall lacking bite.  Avoid.
