Anyone else tink Figgins is underated

Guy bats around 300 steals 35, lots of triples, should score decent runs. In my league he is eligble at of,ss,2b,3b. I just dont understand why this guy does not go a little higher in drafts. Also where does he go in your drafts.

I think he had a monster year last year that is gonna be pretty hard to repeat, the multi-position eligibility is nice but if you anchor him at one position you're wasting his eligibility, I think he's a great guy to have in the Utility hole and if a guy has a day off or what not you can throw him in wherever

I think he's overrated, actually. There's no way he repeats those numbers, almost everyone will admit. But I've still seen him go anywhere from the 4th to the 8th round.

Ridiculous.

I think he a a great pick for a 2nd baseman. I have a sick lineup and was lacking speed, so in the 12th/13th round I scooped him up. He rounds out my lineup very well. I think at erd or OF he is not useful but as a 2nd baseman he is a great asset. here is my team and how I utlized him.

10 Team 5X5 H2H Leauge (non-keeper)

Starters
Alex Rodriguez - 3B
Derek Jeter - SS
Chone Figgins - 2B
Mark Teixera - 1B
Javy Lopez - C
Adam Dunn - OF
Jose Guillen - OF
Brad Wilkerson - OF
Hank Blalock - UT

Bench
Pat Burrell - OF
Milton Bradley - OF
Pedro Feliz - (1B, 3B, SS, OF soon)

He was right where he should have been taken before Scosicia moved him to the 9 hole. Now hes overrated. Of course, my auction and another draft drafted before he decided this little miracle, so I'm in trouble :,-(

I'm in the same boat, Figgins was underrated to a certain degree, but now that he is manning the 9 hole I don't know if he will make such a suitable starter after all. :-t

Actually his highest ranking for me is at 2B, and hes the 12th ranked 2B for me. I have him projected at .292 70R 479AB 5HR 51RBI 26SB. He doesnt have enough power for a corner infielder or a outfielder in my opinion. (in real life baseball I love the guy, but this is fantasy we're talking about)

He went in the 9th round yesterday of the 10 team, 7x7 (2B, OBP, L, BB), H2H league I'm in. Especially valuable in H2H leagues where he can fill in for any number of players on their off days. With OBP a category, there were second baseman (his most valuable position) I had ranked higher that went later. Belhorn in the 14th for one.
