Who should I target in my draft?

Postby TheGhost » Sun Mar 04, 2012 10:10 pm

I play in a 10 team, keeper league, H2H, 6x6, snake draft. We keep six players and I have chosen:

Giancarlo (Mike) Stanton
Jay Bruce
Starlin Castro
Eric Hosmer
Mike Morse
Michael Pineda

We can only keep two players out of rounds 1-5, two players out of 6-10, and two players from rounds 11-23. The keepers are also based on what round they were drafted in. This format allows plenty of top notch players at the top of the draft. The best of which are:

Adrian Gonzalez
CarGo
Halladay
Han_Ram
Ryan Zimmerman
Tim Lincecum
David Wright
Cliff Lee
Evan Longoria
Felix Hernandez
Clayton Kershaw
Andrew McCutchen

We don't know are draft order yet but which of these players should I target considering the players I've kept above. I probably need some speed and and a 3rd baseman. Definitely need more pitching. How would you rank the top 5 of the listed available players? Thanks! WHIR!

What's your 6th batting/pitching categories? I suppose it could make a difference.

For me:
CarGo
A. Gonzales
Longoria
Han-Ram
Halladay
McCutchen
Wright
Felix
Kershaw
Lee
