Really hope the Chris Davis hype doesn't get too out of control. I was hoping to land him between RDs 8-10, which I still feel is reasonable especially in a 10 man league. Cruz is another player I like especially if he gets a starting gig. I guess I just like the whole Texas team in general :-D

Most definitely. I'm updating the MDP list this weekend and plan on writing the follow-up immediately afterward.

Next article will include MDP trends and undervalued/overvalued players according to Yahoo, ESPN, and CBS ADPs.
