Sneaky Yahoo Eligibility

Postby zEli173 » Mon Mar 27, 2006 3:18 pm

Has anyone compiled a good list of players who are eligible at unexpected positions in yahoo leagues? Mike Lowell eligible at 2B jumps out as an obvious example (and it's been mentioned in other threads). SS, 2B, and C are the only places I'm concenred about, but I supose others might be interested in 3B's.

More importantly, has anyone compiled a list of players who are likely or probably to get eligibility at a new position in yahoo leagues once the season starts?[/b]

Kinsler is still rated really low in Yahoo.

This year I went all digital for the draft (Excel) and included all position eligibility as a note for each player. I grabbed a few guys who are and will be eligible at multiple positions: Lowell, Tracy, Berkman, Kinsler.

Two guys I'm watching hard are Cuddyer and L.Gonzlaez, COL. Gonzo qualifies at every position but C and he is slated to be the starting 2B for the Rocks. Cuddyer is having a great spring and is slated to start in RF.

Dempster is the only obvious example of that.

Let's keep this focussed on eligibility at premium positions. If Soriano is playing outfield on a fantasy team, then that manager needs to make a trade.

Kinsler is the main one that jumps out at me. He's listed at SS, but will have 2B eligibility in a few games. He makes a very nice two-position, late-round backup for both your Middle Infielders.

Some guys that come to mind are Pedro Feliz (1b, 3b, OF), Polanco (2b & 3b) and Nomar (SS, 3b & soon 1b).

These are a few good backups and/or starters w/ multiple positions:

Pedro Felix (as stated before)
Rich Aurilia (2B,SS,3B)
Tony Womack (2B,OF)
Jay Gibbons (1B,OF)
Brad Wilkerson (1B,OF)
Bill Hall (2B,SS,3B)
Clone Figgins (2B,SS,3B,OF)

These are just off the top of my head...
