anyone remember the guy in their league this year who took king felix in the second round (i'd almost guarante this happened in 80 % of leagues) how 'd that work out???... [/b]i see a lot of hype about him and i'm sure he'll be great - but he'll go too early.
hah i just mentioned this in the delmon young thread. the guy in my 18 teamer drafted him in the 2nd round, and i called it right there on draft day, that it would kill his season. he ended up in 13th place.
since everyone is doing star players who will be overvalued, here are some mid level overachievers who had good years this year, but need to be avoided next..
overvalued guys in '07
Vizquel - hitting 300 with 25 sb's - i think that alot of people will draft him too high, he will hit 265 with 13-18 sb's next year and wont even warrant a roster spot. and he will be turning 40 next year
Eric Byrnes - '06 25hr/75rbi/24sb. he will not repeat this performance and wont warrant a roster spot either (maybe only in deep leagues) previous career high in sb's was 17 in '04.
Orlando Hudson - .292 15hr 70rbi. another arizona player who wont come close to this kind of production next year
Chuck James - 10-3 3.33era 1.19 whip. another one of these rookie starting pitchers who has excelled in '06. look for a sophmore slump, ten wins would be a huge surprise next season.
Alex Rios - i think alot of people are going to be targeting him because of his 3 month hot streak this year. he will go way to high in drafts and will only be serviceable as a bench outfielder.
just a few i could think of...
