12 games in and seems to be stalling a bit... I was hoping to see a bit more power out of him this year but nothing yet...

yeah whats the deal with this lack of power? he is hitting well but i was expecting a couple HR's by now. Is it just me or does this draft not seem to be nearly deep as some recent ones?

Ackley is not a home run hitter. Don't think of him as typical first basemen, because once his elbow is healed completely he will probably move back to center field.

in a fantasy first year player draft is Ackley the #2 choice behind Strasburg?

He's in the arguement, though so are a few others....Ackley can hit the snot out of the ball but he doesn't appear to have the power or speed to be a fantasy force, IMHO. I'm really liking Rich Poythress, 1B, Georgia. This is a big guy with power and contains the contact rate and plate discipline to be in the mold of a Alonso, Smoak, Wallace type. There are also a couple HS guys and a handful of pitchers that could be in the mix. In other words there really isn't a clear #2, IMHO.
