I think you can be worried about CarGo now if you drafted him as high as he was going in a lot of leagues. That was really more of a draft day mistake than anything though, he was probably too risk to be going early to mid 1st round. Especially with those home/road splits which usually aren't sustainable. But I mean seriously, you aren't going to be trading him for some 5th round guy or something so you aren't really going to sell all that low on him. If you had faith in him 1.5 months ago now isn't the time to change your mind.

Brian Roberts. At the start of the season he was swinging a decent stick and bringing some power, and looking like he was back for good, but he hasn't done anything in weeks now and is down around the Mendoza line. More disturbingly, he's hardly running at all. If Roberts isn't stealing bases, he's hardly better than WW options, is he?

I'm in the same position. I keep looking for a replacement for him, but just haven't found anyone yet that I think has his upside for the remainder of the year.

I have R.Roberts but he isn't 2B eligible in ESPN leagues. I would rather have just about anyone over Hill.

Ryan Roberts was cut a few days ago in my league and will clear waivers tomorrow...I have K Johnson and I'm considering cutting ties but I admittedly don't know much about Roberts. Numbers look good so far...an aberration or could he keep this up?

Just look at his career stats and you be the judge. Sure he could have figured something out but most likely he wont' be starting full time come the end of the season and won't be on very many if any fantasy teams.

I haven't cut anyone yet. I actually picked up KJ when he was dropped. That said, he does look pretty lost right now and was simply inquiring on the pedigree of Roberts as I didn't know much about him.

After looking more deeply into Roberts, I decided it was prudent to hold KJ, but I'm not really expecting all that much. If he finished at 20/20 and hit .260 from here on out, I'd be thrilled.
