After holding down Houston's closing gig in 2017, Giles garnered a 3.08 FIP and 7.57 K/BB rate in 2018. He also posted a 4.65 ERA and got shipped to Toronto after losing the ninth-inning gig. It's the second time in three years his ERA has soared over 4.00 despite excellent peripherals, so drafters can never get too comfortable with the erratic righty. There's still a lot to like. His strikeouts dropped despite an elite 16.0% swinging-strike rate, and he closed the season with 10 scoreless outings as the Blue Jays' closer, a role he'll hold to start the season. He's not far off from the guy who recorded a 2.30 ERA, 11.9 K/9, and 34 saves in 2017.

Ken Giles saves game in win over the Yankees

Ken Giles didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two over 1 1/3 innings to secure his 21st save of the season in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

Giles seems to have been revitalized since being traded to the Blue Jays. The 27-year-old reliever allowed only two hits and a walk in his last five appearances, his longest scoreless streak since May. Giles should be owned in all fantasy leagues.
