The thing to remember about 6x6 leagues with ops and holds is that it really devalues stolen bases and slightly devalues pitchers in general and closers in particular (a starting pitcher for example will only contribute in 4 of 12 categories, while closers a speed demons see their specialty categories drop in importance). Closers are now worth no more than setup men, so a guy like zumaya is worth just as much as a top closer, assuming he is the setup guy all season.

Anyway, on to your team. Keeping what I said above in mind, I can't justify crawford in the first round, but still, he may hit 25 homers, may score 100 runs, may drive in 90, so it could turn out alright. What I would do is see if you can turn him into either utley or rollins/tejada/jeter, to address positions you are weak at. Straight up for Utley or for rollins/jeter/tejada and a good holds guy or high upside bat. If you do this you can simply move Quenten into the starting lineup in the OF (he should be a solid bat this year and is great in OPS leagues).

Pitching looks solid - good upside guys, good strikeout guys. I would drop Mcclung and prior and grab some top setup guys if they are available. If not, try to trade one of your closers for a setup guy and keep your eyes on the wire. Holds is an easy category to contend in if you are active, and shouldn't be punted (I would rather punt steals or saves because you can trade the specialists for more value in return).
