Most Underrated Fantasy Player 2012

Postby bigh0rt » Fri Aug 24, 2012 9:33 pm

So, who ya got? Without doing much (See: any) research, my choice is Allen Craig. I happen to have him on both my teams, but you're talking about a guy who, since May 1, has put up a line of .313, 19 HR, 65 R, 68 RBI, 1 SB, including a 2-week hiatus at the end of May. Many speculated he would be trapped in a time share, platooned, etc. This guy has been a rock, and his ROI has been monumental. Nobody other than those who own him seem to have noticed or care.

So, who ya got? Who is Mr. Underrated this year?

Freese hasn't gotten a lot of love. He's been pretty solid.

Aaron Hill should be mentioned as should AJ Pierzynski. Also, how about Todd Frazier. He's been studly without Votto in the lineup and right now would probably win NL ROY.

How's this for an all-underrated lineup:

C - Pierzynski
1B - Goldschmidt
2B - Hill
3B - Headley
SS - Escobar
OF - Willingham
OF - Rios
OF - Kubel
DH - Craig
DH - Freese

This would have cost you about $40 to put together at an auction. I'd add up the stats so I could compare them to my league but I'm too lazy right now. Someone else do it? :-D

Wow, as i clicked on this thread, i thought Allen Craig. The guy does nothing but hit and has a clear path to playing time. Absolutely mashes lefties too.
