I completely agree. Ackley love is misplaced. He's a guy I'd use to fill in for injured players and depth, but nobody I'd have on my sleeper list.
3rd'd (is that even a word)
Ackley peaks out as a .280 10-10 imo, which has no place even in deep mixed leagues, playing in Safeco, will decrease his numbers, and his run production will be limited.
FWIW Blanks will be up before Rizzo. There is absolutely no point in the Padres starting Rizzo's clock at all this year imo. It just speeds up the process that he will be traded back to Boston
I think his ceiling is a little higher than that. I think he's capable of .280/15/15 which does have a place at 2B in plenty of deep leagues. Not saying he'll have value in a 10-team league...
Hhmm....I think his real value/ceiling lies in a potential .310-.320 avg...not so much what his HR/SB are because those will be pretty limited. But for this year, yeah a .270-.280avg is a safer bet.
