For those that haven't noticed, Chris Young is quietly having a VERY nice rookie season. Looks to be on pace for about 20/20. The bad part is his average but it looks like he's heating up now that he's finally trenched in that lead off spot.
Over the last week: 10 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 4 SB, .321 Last 2 weeks: 12 R, 4 HR, 5 RBI, 5 SB, .283
He's probably not on many WWs but it seems like he may have hit his groove.

I had him, dropped him for kemp @ colorado, figuring they both had a speed/power combo and the games @ colorado would be a tiebreaker. Oops. I'm going back to Young based on playing time factors. If you can eat his sub-par average, the steals, runs and HRs are a nice mix.
Just picked him up for next week, I had Pierre, but my league rewards power #'s more than average and SB's. Hope he keeps it up for a while b/c Crawford is slumping and seems injured like every other week.

going by yahoo ranks he's about the 45th ranked outfielder. so if you're league isn't really deep or has a ton of bench spots(which imo makes the league boring with the hoarding of every player) i don't see how it is too surprising. then you've got the OFs behind him who would be foolish or at least cause people to be reluctant to drop them.

i don't play in all super leagues with 11 other fantasy guru's. but it's not too surprising he's available in a lot of leagues.
