Personally, I picked him up as a backup OF in a 5 OF league. If I fall behind too far in SB he may become a starter. I think he could be this year's "cheap steals off the WW and why you don't pay for steals during the draft" posterboy.
I see the potential too, that's why I'm wondering why I'm holding onto Maybin. They seem like very similar players aside from the hot start and the room at the top of the order, which are considerable facts!
