New Brad Wilkerson predictions?

Postby NikkiSixx » Wed May 24, 2006 8:08 pm

Obviously, his ailing shoulder isnt bothering him anymore and his numbers show. Are there any new predictions for this guy? I drafted him in the 11th round and I benched him through April and I have started him basically entirely through may.



I think with him hitting in Texas for half of his games he could possibly achieve these numbers.


.280 avg., 25-30 HR's, 115 runs, 80 RBI's and 10 SB's.



I really like Brad Wilkerson for the rest of the year.

LOL, yeah he does strike out a lot, luckily that doesnt effect my fantasy roster because I play a standard 5X5 Roto league.

Wow, his value definately takes a dive when you are including strikeouts for hitters. Luckily he hasnt struck out as much this month as he did last month (still a relatively high amount of strikeouts though).

The HR's look about right but you're way off with your 115 runs. No way he gets close to that batting 6th or 7th. Also I can't see him hitting .280.

Yeah, I would drop the runs a bit if he stays in the 6 or 7 hole. But he does walk a lot, so I don't think 90-100 would be unreasonable. I might up his RBI's a little, too, if he's going to be hitting behind all those guys all year. He did hit 32 HRs and 39 doubles 2 years ago (and 42 doubles last year, but I think playing in RFK and the bum shoulder sapped a lot of his HR power. I wouldn't bet on it, but I don't think .280 is totally unreasonable. He is hitting .270 right now, and he was absolutely horrible for the first month+.

As of his K's, don't know what to tell you there..........
