You can't expect anything out of him.

Wouldn't surprise me if he explodes and is the value pick of the draft, wouldn't surprise me if he is a complete bust where he is being drafted. Just depends on your risk tolerance.

Hey, I got him in round 17 (out of 21 in a 12 team format). I'm a happy camper! :)
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

I got him in the 16th round in my 12 teamer, really can't lose taking him there...not a risk

I think where he is going is fine..

Those are great spots for Hamilton, but I think you can realistically expect that in the most competitive of 12 team leagues that he'll be going in rounds 11-13. For a player with that much upside, I'd say that's perfectly fair.

I'd say he barely cracks 500 ABs, hits right around .275 with 30ish HRs and 100 RBIs. I'd also guess that he'll be an extremely streaky player, with reasonably long periods of sustained brilliance and sustained poverty alike.

I don't feel like he's a "must have" player, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him significantly outperform his ADP.
