A bump of what kind? He's already listed as top-10 in many draft lists.
There are plenty of other sources for SB; I don't think you can justify moving him any higher just because Pierre isn't as valuable.
Presumably, though, if Pierre gets less playing time, the supposition is that the total number of stolen bases in your fantasy league is going to decline by some amount (probably 40 some total SBs fewer). In that case, each SB is worth slightly more than it would be if Pierre was stealing 60....thus bumping Reyes' value slightly.
In a 12-team league, though, 40 SBs is only going to be like 3% of the total. I think this would have much more marginal impact on those "cheap SB" guys.
