Is he still worth a roster spot? Any chance he'll get going or is this as good as it gets?

Which line is most likely this year?

2003 71R 14 HR 80 RBI .291AVG .350 OBP

I'm holding onto him in a 14 team mixed league. He's been way too consistant to just drop.

That being said, I had an extra roster spot and am now using Choi over Casey until things even out.
Can we build it?

GAB becomes a band box when it gets hot in the mid summer. HR's go flying out of that park, so there is plenty of hope that Casey can get back on track with the power. The BA is there, and will always be at .300 or above.

What is worrisome is the rise in his G/F ratio. Casey is not getting enough balls airborne to give him a chance to homer. Still, I think Casey is a guy you have to hold onto. He's the #3 hitter in a very good lineup playing in a park that really increases HR #'s, especially in the summer. I would not drop casey at this point.

I dropped Casey this week in my 12-team non-keeper to pick up Ensberg. It felt strange and wrong to do this, but I really need more power from my CI posts to be competitive in my league.

For me the decision came down to believing that his 24 HR season was an anomoly. I could be wrong, but I don't mind taking some chances.

I had him down for something between '03 and '04 coming into the year. I still think he's got time to put up numbers at least that good if he can turn it around. I think he's still one of the more underrated 1B for fantasy purposes, even with the semi-breakout last year.

I would say 2003 looks like the most likely Casey, though I think his runs scored may be higher than that.
