I wouldn't put any faith in Griffey. He hasn't been remotely productive since 2001 -- even then, he was just okay.

Floyd
Jones
Hunter
Stewart

Griffye is a different category--if healthy, he is clearly the best, but I don't think I would take that risk.

Hunter will not duplicate 2002, he doesn't run any more. Neither does Stewart, he is a .300+ BA, that is it.

Stewart received MVP votes. The guy hits, hits, and hits...and as leadoff in the Twins lineup, will score a lot of runs. Jones is the X-factor in all of them. Last year he played hurt. So he compensated for his injury and wasn't as powerful. Hunter learned after last year that he can't just try to kill the ball every time...so his average will improve and so will RBIs and HRs now that he isn't trying so hard. Out of all, maybe gamble with Jones, he'll probably bat 3rd in the lineup.

Floyd...I'm expecting a bounceback season.
Griffey...has a high upside, so I would slot him here. Hunter and Jones aren't great.
Hunter...speed disappeared last year, killing his value. If it comes back (I don't think it will), he'll be pretty valuable.
Jones...does everything pretty well, but isn't special by any means.
Stewart...overrated...doesn't steal enough to have value.

Anyway, Floyd and Griffey are way ahead because of the potential upside...the rest are pretty run of the mill.

Seriously, how can he be overrated? The guy turned the Twins around last year and received MVP votes. I guess it depends on the scoring in your league...but he's a nice 3rd or 4th OF to have on a fantasy team. I would NOT take Griffey, the guy already tweeked his leg, and you know damn well he'll get hurt again.

There is baseball and then there is fantasy baseball. Stewart is fairly worthless in fantasy baseball, maybe not worth having on your roster in a 12-team league, and he should not be starting for anyone. Beyond that, he is typically over-valued because of people that think a few MVP votes has anything to do with fantasy performance. If you want to start him on your team, fine, but that means your team will probably not be very good.
