Curtis Granderson...

Postby Frenchiegangsta9 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 11:58 am

His ADP on MDC is now at 10. Thats sandwiched between Votto and CarGo. Am I missing something here?

Does the fantasy community really think he is the centerpiece pick for their offense? Fielder, Beltre, Upton, and Stanton are just a few names that I would consider taking before him. I havent done a mock yet so I was really surprised to see him ranked that high.

Inside the top 20 yes, not the top 10.

Even though I'm a yankees fan, I'm avoiding him this year unless he falls pretty far. I don't even have him ranked inside my top 10 OF, let alone top 10 or 20 overall. He was awful in the last 2 months last year, and was even worse in the playoffs. He's been great the last 2 years, but his HR are fueled by that large HR/FB ratio and I just don't know if I could draft him with one of my top 3 round picks to keep repeating that ratio. I'm passing this year.

Although, I could definitely see the argument that he will be motivated to have another big year because his contract is up with the Yanks after this year and its unlikely that they will resign him with youngsters in the upper minors (Williams & Austin, plus Gardner for CF) that will, arguably, be ready in a year.

I'd take him late 2nd round. No earlier.

Yeah, if he hits .240 and doesn't get quite as big a boost in RBI and Runs from a faltering NY offense he's not going to look like a top ten player at all. There's also no guarantee that he gets back to 25-ish SBs either. I'm probably avoiding him this year given how much solid power is available early without that huge Avg hit (and other assorted question marks).

Lineup is getting weaker, he isn't running as much, he is hitting the wrong side of 30. No way I take him 1st round, late 2nd or early 3rd I'd think about it.

Late 3rd is where I'd consider him, but there are most likely too many OF's with big upside that I'd rather take than him there. I really can't see myself drafting him on any of my teams this season

I've seen him go really early here in a couple of drafts and I just don't get it. I'm thinking 3rd round but I don't see him lasting that long in any drafts.
