16 team league. yahoo. roto 5x5.
4 teams eliminated last season. 4 new teams have an expansion draft to pick from the players of the eliminated teams.
so far I have picked SP David Price, 2B Dan Uggla, 1B- Paul Konerko.

these are the top players available.

1B/3B- Kevin Youkilis
SS- Asdrubal Cabrera
OF- Adam Jones
OF- Brett Gardner
OF- Logan Morrison
OF- Drew Stubbs
SP- Gio Gonzalez
SP- Max Scherzer
SP- Mat Latos
CL- Mariano Rivera
CL- Brian Wilson

who should I pick next? and which players should I target after that if they're available?
thanks to those who helped me yesterday.

since you're doing an expansion draft...assuming this is a keeper/dynasty league of some kind.

I'd be tempted to look at Youkilis...generally solid production across the board and could play one of two spots for you in the IF depending on who else you could get later (another 3B or 1B option). With his usual production and position flexibility, he's an attractive choice to me.

I'd be looking for long term keepers with almost every pick. Youk certainly belongs in your top 4 but the other 3 have youth on their side. I like Asdrubal best now and Gardner/Jones next if still there. I'd certainly pass on Mo unless you want to trade him, same goes for Youk probly, 3rd base is going to be rough in a 16.you've got a long rebuiding road if these will be your best players, hopefully theres more talent avail after the dispersal

I agree with Giants.... Right past his three, I would go Stubbs... This could be his year (27 years old) that he cuts down on the strikeouts... imagine just a jump of 20 points on his batting average what that would mean for runs, steals, homers... you could be looking at a .265, 20-24 homer, 60 RBI, 45-50 steals guy... pretty hard to come by that...
