OK options as a 4th-5th OFer type...
Adam Jones BAL
Ben Francisco CLE
Michael Bourn HOU
Chase Headley SD
Josh Willingham WAS
Franklin Gutierrez SEA
Skip Schumaker STL
Luke Scott BAL

David Murphy TEX
Ryan Sweeney OAK
Ryan Spilborghs COL
Kendry Morales LAA
Felix Pie BAL
Travis Snider TOR
Chris Dickerson CIN

Not sure any of these guys are either good enough or have a permanent spot in a lineup...
Jody Gerut SD
Matt Joyce TB
Wladimir Balentien SEA
Juan Rivera LAA
Daniel Murphy NYM
Carlos Gonzalez COL
Matt Diaz ATL
Colby Rasmus STL
Josh Anderson ATL


To be honest I doubt I own any of these guys. The guys that do have decent potential are usually overvalued from what I've seen.

Good ranking by J35J although I'd bump up Scott and Willinghelm near the top.

I wouldn't have a problem with that. I was so unenthused with the guys I didn't put much effort in an exact order...

I feel like picking 1 or 2 of the rights guys from this group is often where leagues can be won and lost...

Personally I see Adam Jones as the top guy on this list. PECOTA projects him at around 20/20... outside of that I'd go
2. Chase Headley
3. Spilborgs
4. Luke Scott
