What are your thoughts on Dunn? I was a big fan for fantasy purposes and was confused with his year last year. I thought he would improve going to that ballpark and that lineup. Does he bounce back? When should one look to draft him this year?

I'd draft him in the same area as the other upside guys who I wouldn't be upset if they busted.

That, or whatever your league considers a late round pick. For me, I don't feel strongly about Dunn bouncing back. He was Mr. Consistency until the unexplained disaster of 2011. Something is wrong here. Not sure what, but it scares me away.

After owning him last year in a couple leagues I really want nothing to do with him, however I do recognize the potential late round value and if he's still there in later rounds (17-23, maybe?) I'll take a shot. The problem is by that point your offense should be set, and I'm not keen on having more than 1 or 2 bench bats. Depending on the league settings, I'm usually going to fill my bench with high upside SP.

If he's there at the end of the draft, I might take a shot. If he's not, oh well. Not a big deal. I might consider him a bit more if it's an OPS league, but even there was quite awful last season. I really don't think he can be that bad again.

Worth taking a shot on. Really depends on how your draft is going. If you need a 1B later in the draft, I would take him and probably take that shot a little earlier in hopes that he has a bounce back season. If I don't need him, then I would probably wait or let someone else take him.

Mid teen round pick for me. If someone wants to bet on a comeback before that, let them. Never been a fan of Dunn and what we saw in Chicago last year was just incredibly bad.

I would take a chance on him as a bench bat if available that late.
