Standard 5x5 Roto Keeper League (we keep 16 players). I have no specific needs other than a final outfielder. Looking for someone with profit potential. Colby Rasmus, Alex Rios, and Delmon Young all fit the bill but I'm having trouble choosing between the 3. Suggestions?
Rasmus is easily my pick due to being younger than Rios and hitting in a much better lineup. Rios could have a nice bounceback season too, but I think his days of being a 30-20 threat are over. Delmon sucks.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

This is about right. Rasmus should be he easy pick over the other two. He has way more upside and is only a year removed from a pretty good year.

I think it's Rasmus and then Young with Rios far behind the other two. Rasmus is young and with great upside, although I'm not so sure his struggles last year are just a fluke. Young had a down year last year, but he was great in 2010, and he's going to likely hit behind Cabrera and Fielder, so he'll have a ton of RBI opp's.
Since it's a keeper league, I'd probably go with Rasmus, although if he's consistently batting toward the end of the order in ST, I'd think about it.
Young - Only 1 year older than Rasmus. Some injuries slowed him down in the 1st half last year and he did better in the 2nd half and may still have been hiding an injury to some degree. I think he can repeat 2010 in that lineup. He's my choice for this year and beyond.
Rasmus - I think his struggles were legit. As soon as he tried to increase power his average dropped. Young enough to adjust, though I'm not sure he does much this year.
Rios - Still can put up 15/15 numbers, but Avg hurts. There is not much in the way of surprise upside here.
Rasmus over Rios and I wouldn't consider Young here. Rasmus has your best shot at 25HR and probably has the highest upside.
The kid was dirty before him and La Russa got into it and he just didn't adjust when shipped to Toronto. Keep in mind the Rogers Center is a lot more friendly for hitters than Busch, if he get back to what he was he will have some wicked numbers.
