    I've lurked around numberfire for years but this is the first time I've noticed this section of the site. I've always considered the projections here because when you're speculating sports outcomes for whatever reason, it's my belief that you simply can't absorb *enough* information. At the end of the day, you gotta make your own calls but listening to the point of view from others can be a great way to reach your ultimate decision. It's too bad that this section of the site is about as dead as can be. People coming together like a hive-mind and helping each other out typically yeilds favorable results. As for your 1mo old question, a few things need to be considered. 1. Kelvin Herrera is a G, he's performing at a very high level so far this season. But the likelihood that he gets traded is pretty good and most of the potential destinations would use him in a setup role and his value in the fantasy realm would plummet. 2) Giles is pretty good himself and has grown as a pitcher in his time with Houston. Something you have to consider with him is the fact that the Astros win by a wider margin on average than most teams and Giles just sees that many fewer saves because of this. It's not something that cripples his value but it IS a thing. 3) Peacock is a different animal (see what I did there?) and can't really be compared to the two Closers in this question. In closing, hopefully you took Giles becasue the chance that Herrera is traded looms large and he would barely be roster worthy sans saves in most LGs.
