I just picked this guy up off waivers yesterday, I've been a P. Wilson owner since the draft and following the Rockies OF situation, this guy Hawpe just keeps getting more impressive.
There's a lot of opinions out there re: what the Col OF situation is, best I can piece together is P. Wilson pretty much doesn't play day games after night games (with rare exceptions), so that sometimes opens up the CF spot. P. Wilson you don't really want to start on the road anyway, he does all his mashing at Coors, his splits are really quite ridiculous. What I've heard re: the RF situation is that it's pretty much a lefty-righty platoon between Hawpe and Mohr, and it's actually relatively predicatable who will play. (of course, today they both played b/c it was a Preston off-day..) As the lefty in the platoon, Hawpe will actually get more playing time than Mohr. The way he's hitting it's hard to justify taking him out of the lineup anyway. Not only that, but this weekend proved that Hawpe is capable of hitting on the road, which a lot of the Colo. players are not very good at. Holliday, Sullivan and Restovich will also get playing time scattered about in LF/CF in some way. I think Hawpe is definitely worth taking a flyer on in a deep league, if you're willing to to spend a couple of days figuring out the platoon system they use in Colo. My experience with Wilson is that their situation is more predictable than people think, though.
edited to add
: I just went back and looked through the Rockies box scores and Sullivan and Restovich are really only bit players in this whole equation, they have one combined start between them in the last week. The situation (de facto) actually appears to be pretty easy--Holliday is the regular starter in LF, P. Wilson the regular starter in CF, and Hawpe and Mohr platoon in RF based on lefty-righty, and sometimes they will both play if P. Wilson is on an off-day. I know this situation might be subject to change, but until I see something that deviates from this I am assuming that is basically the situation, and it just makes me more confident that Hawpe is a really good pickup right now.
