Taking a closer look at Ian Kennedy

Isn't it time to take Ian Kennedy seriously as a fantasy option? Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Anyone can see who has the most saves for the duration of this season, but we are in mid-July -- more than halfway through the season. Recent trends mean more, right? Well, when it comes to closers, do they? I mean, here are the save leaders since June began -- a cool, six-week run that shows that nobody knows a thing when it comes to picking closers for fantasy:

11 saves: Will Smith, San Francisco Giants; Ian Kennedy, Kansas City Royals
10 saves: Luke Jackson, Atlanta Braves; Brad Hand, Cleveland Indians; Sean Doolittle, Washington Nationals
9 saves: Taylor Rogers, Minnesota Twins; Aroldis Chapman, New York Yankees; Alex Colome, Chicago White Sox
