Kinsler, AGonzo, Fielder and Cliff Lee are pretty easy choices imo. All are at good price points. For your 5th it is between berkman at $3 which is very good value and Weaver at $22 which is at fair value imo. Weaver should have some trade value in a 14 team league so I would look to make a deal to get a cheaper 5th keeper at comparable quality if possible.

Kinsler, Adrian, Prince, and Cliff Lee should all be locks. Great prices for all of them, and they will all probably still be great prices in 2013 too.

For your 5th, I like Jennings. I think he'll very much outperform that $10 price tag.

Top for are easy peasy. Last one is either Wainwright or Price. I don't think the difference between Price and Wainwright is near the $12 differece so I'd save the money and go with Wainwright.
