Sounds like a good strategy. I took two high-end closers, thinking their 80+ saves would allow me to forget about RP for the entire season/rest of the draft. Four weeks in and they have maybe ten at the most between them, just not many wins and save ops for them so far
Next year I think I'm going to wait until around the 16-18 rounds to pick up a closer or two. Seems like all the marquee closers are either not getting many chances or are injured, and the leaders are pretty much fliers/first year closers/WW pick ups. For saves so far, two of the top twelve were top 180 picks in Yahoo! drafts.
