    I’ve added Colvin in a couple leagues and I think he’s going to be a solid play for the H2H playoffs. Jaso is a guy I’ve been debating on grabbing over Lucroy, he seems to be a rare C that won’t hurt you in any category going forward that is available in many leagues. I’m surprised Ruggiano’s owned % isn’t higher, he’s been outstanding.
