My advice for you would be to remain flexible during the draft. Don't lock yourself into any set strategy. When everyone else zigs, you need to zag. If there is a closer run and you miss out on all the top tier closers, don't reach for a second tier closer. If there are SS runs early, don't be afraid to just tank that position. Do not reach for a player just because you are afraid you are going to miss out. In a 16-team league, everyone is going to have holes in their lineup. Focus on making smart picks. You don't need a perfect team to win.
Also, you do need to pay close attention to the positions you are filling early on. Be careful of drafting 3 OFs in the first three rounds. They may be the best players available, but you lose a lot of flexibility later in the draft. It's ok to underfill a position like only having 1 SP by round 10, but it's not ok to overfill a position like having 5 SP by round 10. You want the option to pick up potentially good SPs that fall too far in the second half of the draft.

I also usually highlight a couple guys in each tier that I'm willing to maybe overreach a tad for... For instance I want Jimmy Rollins this year, so I might draft him a little bit earlier than most mocks put him..
