What stands out to me is 3B depth... Moose being your starting option at present.

I don't love Zobrist in the OF. He is so much more valuable at 2B, but thats something to address in a trade, not in a draft I guess.

I would target 3B, not loving having to rely on Moose there. I think you need speed as well.

To me your team needs more rearranging through trades, you have some valuable pieces that just don't seem to fit. Butler, Ike Davis and Hosmer are all solid 1B options. I might look to trade from that strength as well. Your SP is also a big strength, that I think you could move to make your team more balanced.

Adding a big bat for your 3b. (Beltre would be an excellent target)
Deal Utley move Zobrist to 2b
I'd lok to deal a pick for Bourn or draft Gardner to help you speed.
Pick up a high K SP to round out your staff (beachy type)
and a pair of good closers and your set.

I would go big time for Andrus to fill in the black hole named Drew you have at SS right now. I would also shoot for Sanchez for SP to get you some more Ks. I would put Utley on the trade block for a 3rd baseman and put Zobrist at 2nd. Crisp or Gardner would be a solid addition at OF to help get you some more steals.

Chase Andrus.
I like advice to move Utley and play Zobrist.
You need to find alternative to Moose at 3B.... I like him more as a bench player with upside in fantasy. Playing at starting 3B.... Not so confidcent.
Obviously saves and some pitchers with high Ks would fit as well.

Return the favour!

I'd targe Andrus big time and hopefully you can get him. I would also target Young for 3B and Hanranhan as your best closer option.

please help

I agree with this and be careful with Murphy. Davis and Wright are back he won't get as many games. Slotted for 115 to 125

Also if Zobrist goes to 2nd then C.Young is a solid option as well in the OF. He's a strong 25/25 candidate and will help your speed.
