Jeter or Rollins?

Postby OneLoveBoomer » Wed Feb 15, 2006 5:20 pm

I'm looking to draft SS in fourth, hopefully, and that looks like where these to chaps are getting bought up.

If I get to pick SS btw these two, who should I go with? Why?

Nearly a coin flip, but I give a slight edge to Rollins.

At 27 years of age, he may not have peaked yet. His could even improve on last year's 41 SB's.

I can't really see Jeter improving much on last year's numbers, but there's no reason to see them dropping off, either.

Like I said, these two are nearly a push, but I like Rollins' upside a little bit better.

This year, I take Jeter marginally ahead of Rollins. Longer-term, Rollins gets the nod.

Either way, both will give you good fantasy numbers.

I'm surprised they are both around in the 4th, can't really go wrong with either but I'd probably take Jeter. Batting 2nd will probably raise his value since his RBI will go up more than his R's go down. Rollins is so streaky he scares me, if he doesn't have his annual hot streak in the 2nd half he won't come close to Jeter's value.

I think Rollins is going to put together another great year. I don't think it's a reach to expect his batting average to be a minimum of .300, for his RBI total to go up just a little bit, and for Howard to drive him in a lot. That being said, Jeter's power numbers are much better and the Yanks are going to score a rediculous amount of runs this year. Being near the top of the order should be very beneficial for his run, at bat, and hit total. I'd give Jeter the slight edge over Rollins, and I love J-Roll.

I'd go with Rollins, but you're fine picking either.

Rollins and Jeter are equal in runs and AVG (I think Rollins AVG will increase this year and be a .300 hitter.) Jeter will hit about 5-6 more HRs, and drive in about 20 more RBIs, which is significant. However, Rollins will steal 20-30 more bases than Jeter will, and that's where Rollins takes the lead for me.

If you plan on drafting several 15-20 steal guys, I'd pick Jeter because of the higher RBI totals. For most teams though, take Rollins.

I agree so it would come down to what you are doing in the particular draft. If you are in need of more steals go with Rollins if you want more hr and rbi go with Jeter.

If I had to choose with everything being equal I would take Jeter.

Honestly, it should be pretty much a wash, but since that is the case, go with Jeter because he dove into the stands face
