If you can be active on the waiver wire, you can generally pick up a decent holds guy as roles change through the season. Depending on how I feel about my closers, I tend to look for closers in my league around rounds 18-25. I'll pick two at the max for our 25 man rosters, hoping that one of them succeeds in the hold role or morphs to a closer.
I haven't done a full ranking yet (I need to look at roles), but here's a short list of my top 20.
Chapman probably goes in there somewhere, but I haven't done his projection yet, as do some of the goes battling for closer roles--League, Farnsworth/Howell/McGee, Capps, Dotel, Venters.

There will be a couple teams with essentially 1 closer after the draft that will be punting saves every week, and you really won't be able to pick up saves off the wire. Makes me lean towards really just focusing on holds guys.
In deep leagues like that, is this a wise idea unless closers are falling (or you can nab 3 strong closers and lock down that category every week possibly) Seems better to get the strong hold guys (who might steal a job) that go later and will have better ratios than the bargain closers...
The league also starts 9 pitching spots so I feel I can stock up on a lot of the holds guys
