If you're in a deep league or need help at 1B then he's worth using while he's hot but be ready to discard him just as quick when he gives you three or four nought fers in a row.
I would pretty much say the same thing. Once the pitchers remember to throw him sweeping breaking balls inside, he'll be back down to earth. I'll take the hits as they come right now, though.
I'm not so sure about the every day 1B thing, though...the announcers have said that Wigginton may get some starts at 1B in order to get Mackoviak/Sanchez/Hill some PT. Be careful with this situation unless you really need someone.
