But, but...but he hit a dinger in his first game. Thoughts on platooning him with Clint Barnes?

Ahhh Rickie Weeks, the crackwhore of fantasy baseball. I fell for this too many years in a row. I swear he at one point or another was on 75 percent of the teams in my keeper league, and some for return stints. Stay away.

At the absolute max, he's a Kinsler clone.

30/30 with a mediocre batting average.

That won't be the #1 2b.

He does have upside, and even before his good start, I would like him, but saying top 2b is a bit ridiculous.

Cano is going to be the #1 2B ;-) ;-D

I am high on him but I don't think he will finish even top 5 2B not along finishing with better number than Utley. I mean he might be able to have more SB than Utley but he will not beat him in any other categories.

Ok, I'm on board the train here.

He looks a little more patient at the plate. he also looked more confident last night.

A year off might have helped him to refocus mentally. He's always been 20-20 type guy when healthy. With a little more plate discipline, and power (now 27), I could see him cracking 27-30 HR's to go with 20+ SB's and raising his average .030 points.

Nobody will beat Utley (unless Utley gets hurt), but I could see Weeks cracking top 3.

Meh, I thought that said

My initial reaction was that that seemed reasonable... then I reread it.

In my 10-man league, I was able to get Utley at 7. Then at 194, I grabbed Rickie Weeks. I think he's amazing value for that price. And so far, so very good. He's batting .327, 12 R, 3 HR, 11 RBI, and 1 SB. We all know he won't keep up this pace, but if healthy, I expect huge things from him. And if he gets injured, dropping off someone I drafted at 194 won't hurt me that badly.
