How much better has VMart been than AJ Priez?


A lot actually in the last two months.

But looking at their overall numbers, and given their respective draft position, is there really clear-cut case to name VMart better?

Good point.
In my 14-team league, VMart went in round 4 and A.J. in round 22.
In my 16-teamer, VMart went top of round 2 8-o and A.J. round 15.
Victor will finish with the better overall numbers, but there's an argument to be made that A.J. provides equal or better value in these examples.

I wouldn't hesitate to call V-Mart somewhat of a bust considering his draft position and what he did last year.

Wait until the season's over. VMart will have better numbers tahn AJ.

But considering where VMart was taken in most leagues, he hasn't carried his weight. If you drafted him in the 9th round like I did then he hasn't been that bad. Also, from this point on, VMart should be the top hitting C.
