Rick Graham's weekly update of the Top 100 Relievers to own in SV+HLDs leagues.

[sv_hlds_list list_id=”25221″ include_stats=”1″ season=”2018″]

Following up on our weekly Closers and Holds articles will be our Top 100 RP’s for SV+HD leagues every Friday. Use this list to get a feel for the current reliever market and to gauge value for trades, waiver adds, etc. Keep in mind, holds are much more volatile and harder to predict. We’ve only seen one season from a pitcher with more than 30 holds since 2016, while 26 closers have gone over 30 saves in that same timeframe.


  • We welcome back Aroldis Chapman, Adam Conley, Scott Oberg, Brad Peacock, Alex Wilson, and Trevor May to the list. Falling off the list we have Pedro Strop, Jesse Biddle, Bud Norris, Jose Alvarez, Victor Arano, and Koda Glover. Despite the rough return, Chapman should still have value the next week and a half as the Yankees get ready for their Wild Card game.
  • Richard Rodriguez was the only reliever with 4 SV+HD’s this week, while seven others had 3 (Ty Buttrey, Ken Giles, Raisel Iglesias, Adam Kolarek, Sergio Romo, Will Smith, Felipe Vazquez).
