Drew has become injury prone if I'm not mistaken.

He hasn't become -- he's always been injury prone. Yeah, he puts up the numbers when he plays. But the "when" part of that is a question mark. But I like him as part of an OF/Util rotation when you don't have to play everyone and can do daily moves. His fantasy value seems to be extremely low -- most rank him in the 150-200 overall range. He's a pain though. He'll randomly sit out games with little warning. It may not be worth it to you to do the extra work to keep up on his schedule. But if you do, he can help out your teams overall numbers without a high trading cost.

The only reason drew is going ranked so low is that he is such an injury risk. IF he gets through a whole season uninjured, he should go .310-30-100 with a few steals, and for leagues that count OBP or OPS he is nice too because he has a great eye and takes alot of walks. He is off to a little bit of a slow start this year, but much better than last year. He really went off last year before getting hurt, so expect a hot streak coming soon, in fact I think he homered last night, so it might be starting now

Bingo! ;-D I use Drew to great effect this way. I plucked him from the WW and figure to ride him until he breaks down. He's a top 20 OF when he is playing.
