Yeah that would be a good choice I suppose. I know I need SB's, but I don't want to reach for them you know what I mean? If you think now is a good time to target a player like Davis then I will probably go that route. If he gets taken who else do you think can fill that void? Figgins? He could fill in as my MI.

Might not be a bad idea to try and scoop up both Davis and Figgins here. It would turn SBs from one of your biggest weaknesses to your biggest strength. Figgins is a very solid player in leagues with CI/MI spots because a week or two into the season he will have 2B/3B eligibility.

If you don't want to go in that direction, J. Sanchez and Snider are the two names from the rest of that list that jump out at me as possible picks.

In a H2H, I wouldn't care so much about speed demons like Davis. Perhaps they can be had later.

I would probably go with a SP. Sanchez, Nolasco, and Lewis would top my list. Figgins is worth a shout if you don't want to deal with filling your MI later and could use the speed boost now.
