Feliz - injured and working his way back from TJ surgery; not likely to pitch until after the all star break; in almost every league, you don't stash a player in this situation unless he's a superstar
Burnett - a clear regression candidate; always wildly consistent and not likely to be above average for 2 seasons in a row.
Fiers - He's an alright middle-of-the-rotation starter but that isn't enough to knock off one of the other guys on the list.

I agree. I have to assume that most if not all of the set closers are going to be kept, so you're a little short on that, and the guys you currently have (Wilhelmsen, Grilli) are not 40-save guys that would bail you out if you only had two of them. Also, if 2013 is anything like 2012, then closers are going to be falling by the wayside every week and having the likely candidates could prove sage (which, funny enough, could be an argument to drop Frieri and just keep your eyes open). Either way, it looks likes you're going to have to speculate on saves at some point.
Another thought: You might want to offer Frieri and Wilhelmsen to the owner who has Madson ONLY IF he has a 40-save closer guy like Kimbrel or Paps to send back. If you get one of those guys, you're already in an improved position on saves and can then speculate on another saves guy if you want.
