23 homers for Burnitz is a pretty absurd prediction. The guy has hit over thirty homers six out of his past seven years in the league...I have no idea why anyone would anticipate him to dropoff that much...
Yeah, I agree.
I see it as closer to:
Burnitz .240 32hrs 95rbis 80runs
Dunn .260 40hrs 105rbis 85runs
So, while I do see Dunn finishing quite a bit higher, Burnitz might be a better value. That said, with Burnitz likely low average, he is going to have negative value in a roto league. He really only is servicable in H2H leagues or only the very deepest roto leagues.
