Draft in 45 mins - #4 pick - Justin Upton at #4?

Postby Devil Doc » Sun Mar 25, 2012 6:56 pm

Its a 10 team H2H, 2 player keeper league (no restrictions on keepers), 5x5 scoring.

He's 24 years young, put up a fight for Braun for NL MVP last year, and had really has some big upside...is he worth taking #4 overall?

Thanks for all your help guys!

Love him, but still too early. Projections and ADP settle on about a handful of guys. At #4, I am hoping Tulo comes to me.

I'm taking Tulo, Braun, Bautista and Cano above JUpton.

I love him too, but not at 4.

I think the consensus would be those listed above...it would be hard for me to pull the trigger on that guy, but I'm guaranteed to get one of Pujols, Miggy, Braun or Kemp...and possibly Tulo if I wanted him at #4.


Thanks for such quick responses I really appreciate it!

I guess the big thing for me, is trying NOT to compare it to fantasy football. Would I take a 29 y/o stud WR like say Andre Johnson (although I believe he's 30) or a younger guy who's shown he's got big capability like Mike Wallace...hard to compare baseball to football, but in a keeper league I guess my mindset has Upton being valued HIGHER.

Just thoughts...

Thanks again fellas! ;-D

My draft starts in 7 minutes, and I just found out that i have the #4 pick also. I am prepared to take Tulo, assuming MIggy, Pujois and Kemp go top 3.
