I'm not sure I trust Hanson's health, and if Storen ourscored Felix last year then I feel like he'd practically be a lock to outscore Hanson this year. Admittedly I've never played a points league so if there's something wrong with my line of thinking let me know.
In points leagues, RP can match SP in points. The problem is that year to year, you don't know which RP will actually do that. Going into 2010, Broxton was one of the best closers in the game only to put up a 4+ ERA and out of the job less than a year later. Before the season started last year, Axford was considered a second tier closer only to finish the season in the top 3. Point is, you just can't predict how good closers will be year to year. So taking Storen is a big question mark because we just don't know what he will do next year.
Hanson has the most upside but also has the most downside. He could be a top 20 SP or could be shut down at any point because of shoulder issues. So saying all that, I think I would go with Storen. He should be fine this year and should give you plenty of points. While you can't know exactly what he will give you, you will at least get a top 10 closer that should give you a full season.
