It's about the time of the season where owners start to worry about the slow starts of some of their better players. This is a great opportunity to cash in on those fears. For me, guys like Atkins, Zimmerman, and Jermaine Dye come to mind. Who are your guys' buy low targets?
Everyone you've mentioned along with Sexson. The good thing for me is I don't even have to buy low, guys like Konerko, Sexson, Dye, Furcal, Zimmerman, and a few others are available in my league and have been the entire time. I know all the kids in my league from school and they don't realize fantasy baseball is a LONG ass season and they're all too busy caught up in what's going on right now. So, I've got my eye on the guys I mentioned because once they heat up I'm pouncing.
I disagree, Pujols has to be the biggest buy low out there, especially in a keeper. He's a guaranteed 35 HR 100 RBI .300 AVG guy, this may be a down year for him, but a Pujols down year is 2nd round value anyways.

Yeah, they are doing so unbelievably bad that it can no longer be called "just a slump." I don't think it's an injury though, more like the bleach168 touch of death in the cafe challenge league. I first picked Pujols, second picked Carpenter, and third picked Abreu.

I'm going to support my own recent trade and say Konerko. If his team was playing well and he was just sucking I would be more concerned, but I'm hoping their is just a flu going around the White Sox right now.
I traded Sabathia for him, which probably isn't considered a sell high (since I like Sabathia) but with my pitching I could take a chance.
Atkins: Buy Low, but last years numbers were a fluke IMO (reminds me of Ibanez for some reason)
Howard (It's encouraging that his health may have been a factor in his bad play, I think he is a solid buy low)
Pujols (he's worth the risk, but no Pujols owner is giving him away for less then an arm and a leg anyway, are they?)
Abreu (ehhhhh, declining rapidly)
Kendrick (while you still can)
Weeks (fading a little recently, possibly get him cheap)
i wouldnt consider Furcal and Soriano buy low guys anymore.
Soriano is hitting .353 AVG, 4 HR, 7 RBI, 15 R over the last month.
Furcal just had back to back 4 for 4 games, 2 for 4 the game before, and is allready 2 for 2 tonight.
for buy low guys now, maybe look at numbers over the last month, maybe..
Sizemore (.217), Kinsler (.207), Abreu (.217), Atkins (.240), M Young (.245), Damon (.250), Delgado (.196), Konerko (.181), Del Young (.162), Cano (.194), Baldelli (.191), Sexson (.183)
