You're not making much sense to me.Atkins hit .306-11-58 in the first half last year.He was productive the whole year.
yes, those are Lyle Overbay numbers at the CI. Thats 7th round value. In 2005 Reyes hit .273 with 99 R, 60 SB and earned $29 at a more premium position. Those are late 2nd round numbers that year at least in my 14 team league. Maybe slips early 3rd in a shallow 12 teamer.
I'm an Atkins fan, I expect him to have a good year but he has only had 1/2 a year of top end value so far in the majors. I just don't think the comparison to Reyes is a very good one. The fact people are putting him in the top 6 at his position says a lot about how good they expect him to be, I'm just not ready to take him over the more proven ramirez.
