B. Giles...?

Postby intense » Sat Mar 06, 2004 11:42 am

Where do you guys think he should be taken in a 12man 5x5 head to head?

I have him as my 11th ranked OF overall... but he has weird yahoo rankings so he is a steal alot later... what kind of numbers will he put up?

I would go by yahoo rankings, try espn's avg draft. It's a bit more realistic. To answer your question 4th round.

In my competivive 12 team league I got B. Giles in the 7th, but he will probably go before that in most drafts.

3rd or 4th round probably. He deserves to go around when Abreu, Maggs, and Garret Anderson start being taken but he'll probably slip a bit.

I got him in the 7th round in one league and late in the 6th round in another.

He went in round 6 in my league...I wouldn't take him before the 5th and I wouldn't let him slip past the 7th (depending on what positions you need to fill). I think he'll be great this year, but anytime someone comes off a down year, there is risk involved. For instance, I didn't take him in the sixth because I needed pitching and Oswalt was available. If he falls to you, grab him, but targeting a player before a draft can be dangerous...you often end up taking him too early.
