along with a .260 AVG. he strikes out way too much.

David Freese can put up good numbers, if he's healthy. but that's a big IF.

Will probably look like a bit of a late-comer jumping on the bandwagon, but I like Edwin Encarnacion this year. Especially where he was available in drafts. Toronto seems committed to him, and he could have a nice return on investment for fantasy.

I agree. I got him for $6 (equivalent to 15th round pick in a 12 team league). Couldn't be happier with how it's turning out. Being given full-time DH at-bats could allow him to put up a huge season. Even had 2 swipes last night.

I was one pick away from getting him in my draft. So upset I missed him.

Looks like Aviles might have settled in at the leadoff spot while Ellsbury is down. She see a bump in value.

I took him over Alex Gordon in a couple drafts and people ragged on me some for it but I really like Adam Jones this year.

I gotta agree here. Just needs a small boost in power to see a nice jump in fantasy utility. Plus, better players around him gives him more chances with runners on.
