Would you drop a closer for Luebke? (WHIR)

I'm in a one-year H2H points league. The way the point scoring is set up closers have a lot of value. As a result, here's my pitching staff:
SP: Lincecum, Cain, Kershaw, Jimenez, Hellickson, Beachy
RP: Rivera, Marmol, Storen, Street, Feliz, Nathan

Six starters, six closers. I've seen how well Luebke's been playing since being converted to a starter. I don't want to drop Beachy or Hellboy, and I don't have any batters to spare (I only have one on the bench as it is). I just picked up Nathan, so I'm not sure I wanna drop him, but I would if you guys think Luebke's worth the gamble. Would you drop a closer for him? Obviously not Rivera or Marmol (despite how bad he's been playing, I traded for him early on and I'm sticking with him), but maybe a guy like Street or Feliz? Or maybe Nathan even though I just got him? Or just leave the team alone? Thanks guys, and I'll gladly respond to your threads in return.

*if* I were to give up a closer it would go this order marmol -> nathan -> feliz -> street -> storen -> rivera

I like luebke.. he's been solid. He's not proven yet tho. I would wait to see what the next start yields, then think about it some more.

Nathan is iffy, but he's got a pretty good track record and I think he will slide into the groove fairly easily. Even if he's not what he used to be pitching wise, I think he will be dependable and not to melt under pressure. That's what I like him better than marmol in the second half. But that's just speculation.

I like dropping Marmol or Hellickson for Luebke.

Unless it's a keeper league, then drop Marmol.
