“Don’t pay for saves” really comes to show the difference between Roto and H2H leagues. Arguably the type of league that is more common, a H2H will allow you to roll with closers you picked off the FA or got later in a draft because of the unpredictability of the Save. A team could have 4 top ranked closers and might still struggle against a team with 2-3 late round or FA pick up guys.

Because the league is set up for week to week, a team can get away with this. But in a roto league, you’re correct, you will be buried if you don’t get more reliable guys by punting the position.
