Do you draft setup men?

Even in my 12 team league, there always seem to be good setup men available throughout the year. I might grab one to ride for a while if there isn't anyone in the free agent pool that I find particularly appealing. But they're always the first to go when- say- Desmond Jennings gets called up and you're looking for a roster spot and are unsure who to drop, as they should be. They have functional value on your roster while you use them, but they are usually pretty interchangeable since a guy with a good K-rate and good ERA/WHIP is usually available, especially among the ones behind rock solid closers.

So no, I almost never draft them. I use them for a week or 2 at a time, depending on the quality of the available FAs and the league depth/settings.

In H2H I prefer to go with SP in my P slots. In Roto I tend to go with really good closers instead of going with setup men though I'll use a top flight setup guy in a pinch if I don't get the closers I want.
