So what would be considered a solid round to take Drew in? Would you be happy getting him in the 12th round?

You won't see Drew last past the 10th round unless you are in an 8 team league. In 12 teamers he's anywhere from a 5th rounder to an 8th rounder, just depends on how much your leaguemates like him.

I agree to an extent that as far as safe projections and value picks go peralta and hardy are probably better options in 5x5. However, their upsides are not near Drews.


I'm not sure that it is. If it wasn't for a hip injury in 2007 and losing 10 lbs to an illness at the end of spring training in 2008 you very well may have seen 30 HR out of Hardy the last 2 years. Peralta has legit 25+ power as well.

I guess maybe I'm just not as high on Drew as others. It won't surprise me if Drew is the 4th best SS in fantasy baseball this year but it won't really surprise me if he is the 10th best either. Tulo, Hardy, Peralta, Jeter, Young, Drew, Furcal are all in a big lump for me. It wouldn't blow me away to see a mini spike in production that sees Tejada or Renteria worth more than Drew either. I just think after the big 3 SS that the best option is to wait on the position. Obviously not everyone agrees with me since Drew has been going in the 6th round or so.

To answer the original question though, I'd rather have Drew than Gordon. Gordon's upside this year is probably Adrian Beltre. .265ish AVG, 20ish HR, throw in 10 steals.
