Elijah Dukes-huge upside, but he is a nutjob
Elvis Andrus-could be very good, still very far from the majors
Travis Buck
Nolan Reimold
Dexter Fowler

For roto:

- Fowler
- Buck
- Andrus
- Dukes (a REAL wildcard)
- Reimold

There's not much that separates the first 3, and I would like to have any of the 5, altho Dukes is maybe the ultimate hi-risk, hi-reward guy. Reimold is a bit more of a question mark than the others, but he was injured for part of last year and did much better when healthy. Will be interesting to see how he does in a healthy season at AA.

BTW, I heard that Andrus is not far away from the majors at all and that he could be up even by the end of this year. Probably not, but anyway I dont see how he's farther away than Fowler, since they both spent their entire 2006 at Low-A.
