    What should my first round strategy be given my keepers?

    I have Trout, Goldy, Gio Gonzalez, Billy Hamilton and Everth Cabrera kept in rounds 8-12.

    I have the 10th pick of 12 every round. Stats are R/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/OBP & QS/SV/K/ERA/WHIP/K:BB

    Right now, I'm thinking about 2 strategies. Either go Beltre/Wright/Longo or Fielder/Votto in the first round (these will be the best players available in my slot).

    If I went Beltre/Wright/Longo, I don't have to worry about filling a specific position late in the draft (I'll already need to fill 2B and C in later rounds).

    If I went Fielder/Votto, I'd have to hope I get either Zimmerman in the 3rd round, or try to get Bogaerts or Castellanos in the mid rounds, and I'd also lose my flexibility for UTIL, but I'm not that concerned as I traditionally only have 2 Offensive bench guys and go for count stats on the pitching side.

    I plan on swapping out Billy Hamilton with another OF each week once I've accumulated enough SB's for the head-to-head win (maybe someone like Brandon Moss). My other bench spot I hope to have someone like Profar or Bogaerts who can play multiple infield positions.

    Right now, I'm going with the ranking of Beltre/Fielder/Votto/Longo/Wright. I put Wright last b/c I don't need SB, I'd rather have the best chance at the most HR. There's a slim chance that Longo could be available at the time of my second draft pick.
