All you Atkins owners need to thank the Official Garrett Atkins Thread for getting our boy going. The fact that he got his batting average all the way up to .285 is pretty damn impressive.
And any player getting extra position eligibility will ALWAYS increase his value.
I am another owner that benefited from him getting 1B eligibility. I had Nady at 1B all year. Now I moved Atkins from DH to 1B and Corey Patterson into the starting lineup. Nady riding the pine.
So i do not agree at all with this guy. If he wants to have an entire lineup where all his players only have 1 position go right ahead, I'll take those players that have several positions.

Even if he eventually gets 1B eligibility in most fantasy leagues...Atkins is much more valuable as a third basemen than at first...
Maybe the dumbest post I've ever seen at the cafe.
