I think you answered your own question.

Don't. An auction is much more reactive than a draft. If you decide ahead of time to fixate on certain players, you will likely overpay for them while passing up bargains elsewhere. Auctions take a lot of prep. Get some good auction values custom for your league. Decide what your are willing to pay for each player then stick to it. Many players will sell higher than they should. Let them. Scoop up the late round bargains you're already finding.

I like to spread my risk so I like to have a lot of guys that add 10-20 SB instead of a few guys that add 40+. I also think power is scarce (especially power that comes with a decent AVG), speed is plentiful. So I tend to target high HR guys that throw in a few SB early and then if I don't have enough SB late I can fill out my roster with guys like Denard Span that are more R/SB oriented and going insanely cheap.
there's no low cost alternative to Miguel Cabrera that even comes close.
