Yeah but that's all he really is. He's the best guy in the game to have on your bench because of his eligibility. But, he's a hole filler. It's hard to justify going from here on out with Youkilis as your main guy at a position. I guess 3rd outfielder isn't so bad, but it's not great either. Best bench player in fantasy terms but I don't think I'd want to count on him as an everyday player unless I lost a guy for the season.

This is his second full year in the league... I don't understand how people can make generalizations about him being this and that. From the guy who said he "never" hit .300, are you basing this off his single full year in the majors where he hit .275, or his nearly 1400 minor league abs where he hit in fact .300 exactly. Hes absolutely on fire right now,(yahoo rank #26) and the number 4th ranked 1b behind morneau, fielder, and ortiz(who doesn't have 1b eligibility in some leagues). Is he going to finish .340 30 hrs 100 rbi and 100 runs.. definitely not. But could he conceivably finish above .300 with 20ish hrs, 100-110 runs, and 80-90 rbis... absolutely, which is hardly a statline to scoff at, or a "backups" performance.

BP had his weighted mean at 90runs, 18hrs, 78rbi, 4sb, .376obp, .456slg. Is he a great "power hitting" 1b... of course not, but he produces consistently and will continue to in boston's dynamite lineup.

Just remember this is his second full year in the majors, and while hes probably not going to hit 30hrs, his first full year relatively promising, and he certainly seems to be improving on that.

I need this guy on my team because he is always on base, WOW in the Red Sox line up. I think he's scrappy.

Don't see why he can't put up Lyle Overbay style numbers and unless you are in a really shallow league Overbay is most likely starting for someone. Youk isn't just a bench guy unless you play Yahoo default settings which isn't really fantasy baseball to begin with, its pick your all stars~.

He should get 3B eligibility at some point soon too. He's got 3 starts there already and I'm sure he'll fill in for Lowell on his next day off.
