I think Lee will have another strong year. He'll have ARam to back him up and its a contract year, which usually means monster numbers.

1- Pujols
2- Tiex
3- ortiz
4- lee
5- Berkman
6- konerko
7- Dunn
8- delgado (Shea Stadium and the Mets)
9- sexson
10- giambi/Helton/Howard/Thome

Helton, even after being "de-roided" ;-7 still produced better fantasy numbers than Berkman.

You can talk all you want about Berkman's second half, but, by the same token, lets take a look at Helton's second half.

Helton: 20.7 AB/HR, 5.18 AB/RBI, .367/.488/.623/1.112
Berkman: 14.5 AB/HR, 5.32 AB/RBI, .291/.419/.575/.994

Don't worry...Berkman is better. ;-7

You can sample size however you want. Full season numbers pro-rated for missed time is what matters. Helton's first half numbers were awful and last I saw they count. And exactly why was that? His power never returned either.

Berkman missed time, was not sharp when returning from serious injury and still posted 24 Hrs in less than 470 ABs. He should return to Berkman-like form in 2006.

I'm in the camp that's believes Morneau will live up to expectations. He's one of my 2006 undervalued picks

Ortiz won't be eligible at 1B either, will he?

Pujols
Tex
(Ortiz if he's eligible)
Helton
Berkman
Dunn
Hafner
Lee
Delgado
Sexson

I also think Morneau will come close to the top-10. I'm not touching Derrek Lee with a ten foot pole. He may produce numbers higher than that, but I want to play it safe. I'm more or less throwing him in the "avoid" pile...wouldn't touch him until Round 5-6, I think.

Lee in round 5-6? Thats not a great move considering that you could probably trade him for a second round player. The guy can hit and figured it all out last year. While he may not post numbers like last years, he definitely seems to have turned a corner. I dont know how safe Id feel in the first, but I would definitely look at him in the 2nd and wouldnt think twice to grab him in the third. Not taking a guy like him in the 5th seems like a mistake.

Ortiz started 10 games at 1B last year, so he's definitely eligible in Yahoo. Don't know about other leagues, though.
