That's really a big part of your answer I think. The current situation for Upton is about as good as you can get for a fantasy owner; he's playing all over the place, getting all sorts of eligibility. Going forward, I'd guess he gets fewer positions of eligibility, and the ones he's likely to stop playing are the infield positions, where he's most valuable.
I like the guy, but I'd be pretty amazed if he approached the value of Utley.
