How will your keeper rules work?
Sacrifice the pick of the round you drafted a guy? I know some leagues move up the round you lose by 1 each year (so if you keep a guy drafted in round 5, you lose a 4th round pick in the draft).
With those categories, it changes the values of some guys. Alex Gordon becomes more valuable when you're looking at HR AND 2B AND 3B, for example. He'd give you true 7 category production.
Three true outcome guys like Adam Dunn become even less valuable.
Unless you're picking at the top and can nab a sure thing guys like Braun, Cabrera or Trout, you're probably going to be targeting keepers in later rounds. Maybe you get a pitcher on the cusp of ace status in round 6 (Matt Moore?) or a hitter who is a lock/top 5 pick in coming years (Bryce Harper).
How many are you keeping? Don't chase ALL keepers. YOu want enough to have some backup plans moving forward, but not so many that your team is crippled this year.
I like Jedd Gyorko as a sneaky later round guy.
Matt Harvey also might make some sense.
