What do you mean by "options"?
Take the best available player in your opinion and you will be fine. After all, you have about a 30% chance your selection will bust anyway so make sure you don't pigeonhole your pick based on the ADP. If you have a strong feeling about a certain player, use that opportunity to grab him and gloat later in the year when the player significantly outperforms expectations. If you don't like Tulo, Wright, or other 12-18 ADP players, grab Votto if you feel he will be a stud!
When you have a pick in the early 2nd round, only 14 or so players have been drafted so you have a SH**LOAD of options!!!!
Just out of curiosity, who would you be willing to reach for at the 12-14th pick range (who is on your radar to make a leap into the top 15 that isn't currently being projected as such)? Assume a 10 team league, so you would have already made a 1st round selection.
The three that stand out to me would include Matt Holliday, Joey Votto, and Justin Upton... potential 5 tool guys (esp Votto who stole as many as 24 bags in the minors). I would prefer them to any SP, a speed only guy like Ellsbury, or a power/low BA guy. Grady Sizemore may also be a solid selection.
