Rickie Weeks

Postby UMTerp29 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:21 am

Is it time to resurrect the Rickie Weeks is a jerk thread? I was feeling pretty good about him after the first week, but he has been dreadful since, 1/26 with 1 R, 0 SB, 14 k, 3 bb. After posting .261/.343/.457 after the all star break last year with 13 hr's, I was thinking he was finally over his ankle injury and he would be a decent play this year. What are his expectations going forward? Why can't I stay away from this guy? Fool me once....

I'd expect something like last year probably with a little higher AVG. He is slowing down so don't expect the SB to come back. The Brewers went through a huge scoreless streak so most of their stats look ugly from the last week.

I revived the thread last year when I traded for him (the small part of the package). I have always hated but hopefully I can flip him this year although he does kind of fit my boring, older, overlooked but halfway productive veteran that gets shunned in my dynasty league. For example I drafted David Dejesus 5 yrs ago and he is one of the only players that has stuck on the team since the beginning (including Buehrle, McCann, YEscobar and Garza).

Drafting Weeks = drafting Chris Johnson in fantasy football = wearing nut-putchingly skinny jeans. There's nothing wrong with it and there's still hope it might work out well, but you know going in that at some point it is going to hurt you.

Gotta love Weeks..seems like every season he's the most added/dropped player in fantasy.

Now that Carpenter qualifies at 2nd, I'll be sitting Weeks until I detect a pulse. I'm still reasonably high on him for the rest of the season, but he's streaky.

I have Aaron Hill in one of my leagues, hurt, so I just made a trade to acquire him.

It was either that or Marco Scutaro as a free agent.
