I like the hitters that you're keeping. My first priority would probably be grabbing another solid SP, due to Sheet's injury-proneness.

You've got tons of speed there. I'd target, firstly, a reliable SP, and secondly, a power hitter.

Power and a pitching are you weaknesses as stated before. But I'm actually higher on your pitching than they seem to be. I'd go power first then pitching.

i dont see much of a problem with power at all...teixiera and berkman are the big bashers and reyes, crawford, sizemore and vmart could all easily hit 20

i'd definitely focus on starting pitching first, i really like sheets but if he goes down again ur gonna need a lot of help

you have a ton of speed so once ur set with ur starting pitching i'd look for a 3B with some power

I'd grab the best SP available to you with your 1st pick and the best 3B available with your 2nd. After that focus on SPs and RPs. You may be able to leave the 2B position open for 4-5 rounds.

Weakness in your keepers may be overstating it, more like what do you need to dominate. Nice team ;-D You may have too much speed (since the idea is to have just enough to get the max points each week), but that's an issue you can remedy with a trade later if you want. With 2B open you're likely to also get another speedster there as any with pop will be kept (Utley, Uggla), so you can get away with ignoring speed at your open positions if that luxury presents itself during your draft.

Pitching should be your biggest focus since you're counting on Sheets to be your ace if he's healthy. You can use a good bopper at 3B or RF, too, but you're off to a nice start.
