Yahoo's fantasy "experts" are all hailing Rios as a tremendous comeback player this year. The question is: since I have one more player add this week, does it make sense to add him over:
Justin Morneau
Alejandro de Aza
Jordan Schafer
Mike Trout
Matt Joyce
Mike Moustakas (on waivers till tomorrow...would have to wait to see if he clears)
Jose Altuve
Cody Ross
Carlos Quentin
Allen Craig
Alcides Escobar
Denard Span
Nate Schierholtz
Luke Scott
Bryan LaHair
Gerardo Parra

If it helps, I have three OF's for 3 OF slots while Young and Crawford are out. I have no backups at 2B, 3B, or SS. Morneau's an attractive option, but with Freeman and Davis at 1B it might make more sense to grab an OF. So is Rios the add, or are one of those other options better?

Thanks and leave a link!!

Should probably mention that the drop will be Harper. I've been keeping him around in case somebody got hurt and he got the early season call-up, but he looks to be a ways off still.

Anybody? Thinking of grabbing Moustakas if he clears waivers tomorrow morning. He's been looking good recently. Kind of between him, Morneau, and Rios for me.I have two 1Bs, which makes Morneau a less attractive option. I have Crawford and Young on the DL, so when they come back I won't need Rios. That leaves Moustakas since I don't have a backup for Wright at 3B.
