He is just Dexter Fowler. He had a big start last year too and then faded back into Dexter Fowler again which is a 5th OF in a 12 team league.

Should I be worried about Lawrie? I was hoping he would breakout this year but it's looking like its not. I have Machado and Arenado along with Lawrie. I'm debating on which guy to drop? I'm leaning towards Arenado because I know if I drop Lawrie he'll get picked up. What do you guys think?

I wasn't crazy about Lawrie to start the season, but you should probably be able to get something for at least one of those guys.

I would try to shop Lawrie. I'm not a fan, but I know a lot of people were high on him. I'm sure you will get something in return. I love Machado, but he isn't going to give you crazy HR numbers. Should be good for AVG, Runs and RBIs in that good O's lineup. Arenado is a bit of a wild card and I think he might struggle at times, but he's got huge upside. I wouldn't drop him.

I basically replaced my entire pitching staff on one team this weekend, dropping Vogelsong, Hanson, and Marcum. Desperate times...

With that kind of FA list, might as well be playing the hot hand...none of them are good enough to hold onto while they struggle when you can just go to the FA list and grab another that is playing better.
