1B/3B: C. Headley
OF: I. Suzuki
OF: B.J Upton
OF: M. Bourn
OF: C. Rasmus
OF: A. Gordon
DH: A. Lind
UTIL: D. Ortiz

Also, I was just offered Dan Haren for Headley and Escobar. Good trade?

I'll highlight in red players I straight up don't like for fantasy, and areas you are weak in will get yellow.

C: M. Montero
1B: C. Lee
2B: M. Izturis
3B: M. Young
SS: D. Jeter
2B/SS: A. Escobar
1B/3B: C. Headley
OF: I. Suzuki
OF: B.J Upton
OF: M. Bourn
OF: C. Rasmus
OF: A. Gordon
DH: A. Lind
UTIL: D. Ortiz
BE: J. Mauer

Unless you know something I don't about sanches, FLA closer role is set for a while, and lidge just needs to go. Lind you could replace with hafner, jeter with lowrie, headly with betemit, and assuming it isn't a keeper league, try and move mauer for a good first baseman, berkman, konerko, or better yet posey if you can manage. People overvalue mauer in general and seeing as you have one of the best hitting catchers starting already, you can use mauer to improve you elsewhere.

Yes yes and yes. You can easily replace those 2 off the Free agent market.
