If you're picking 3rd, I wouldn't give up a whole lot to get Strasburg. Just take Ackley or Green.

Taylor, Wade Davis & Dominguez are you're only real studs. In a 20 team league, I'm guessing a lot of teams have better studs but probably not as much depth and interesting 2nd & 3rd tier guys. I'm not familiar with all your guys, but I'll comment on some of them.

Ike Davis had a great bounce back from last summer's mess. Crawford, Decker, Lough Scarpetta & Pineda also had nice seasons.

Kulbacki, Danks & Halman all took big steps backwards.

We'll see how Liddi, Gillies & Gaston do when they all leave their respective hitter's paradises next season.

Conger, Morales, Lough & Strieby are all interesting prospects with a lot of upside.

I'm not big on RP prospects, but Link could be working late innings in Chicago as soon as this spring.

I've never been very high on EY2 or Vicedo but most will put them in or near the top 100 lists.

Your system is probably below average but not by too much. You probably have 3 top 50 guys (Davis, Taylor and Dominguez) which is good but you lack any real studs. And Dominguez is probably a better real life prospect since he'll be pretty boring as a fantasy player (he's got good defense but will be lucky to be average offensively imo).

The other good part of your system is that you have some guys (quite a few) that will rank in the 75-150 range that have good upside and could move up fast next season.

I have my eye on Simon castro as a sleeper next season. He has a fastball in the mid 90's with upper 90's or even 100mph possible in the future. and he put up excellent K and BB rates in his low A debut. he might not make a top 100 list but he's the kind of guy that I like in my system because if things work out he becomes a top 20 prospect in a year or two.
