offered Eaton for my Simmons WHIR

Postby blexann » Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:44 pm

Dynasty league and I have been offered Simmons straight up for my Eaton. My SS is Everth Cabrera I'm not searching for another SS but that's what I was offered. If someone can tell me the potential of Simmons in Atlanta...is he going to be a regular? what have you heard ..etc. WHIR I know most players in the league including prospects..just not Simmons

Yes Simmons is expected to be our everyday SS and he most likely will be leading off. BUT he doesn't have the most upside in terms of fantasy, so this isn't a bad deal for you if you can afford to put Eaton on the DL/bench until he comes back.

well that's the thing I'm ok with Eaton on my DL for a few weeks I can pick up Para as he is a FA. i'm thinking long term as SS is a very shallow position.

Long term Eaton has more potential, but if Simmons can handle lead-off duties for Atlanta he could have a really good season. Simmons just doesn't have the same upside as Eaton.

If Simmons can show he fills that leadoff spot well then he could have a decent year in Atlanta with that lineup. I say go and take the deal but I still do really like Eaton in the long term this year.

That was quick. I think you made the right decision. Simmons is pretty one dimensional in fantasy. I'd like to get Eaton next week and think this injury might lower his price a bit. Should help to make him a keeper for a couple of years to come. Cheers.
