Wheeler or Jennings for the next 5 years?

Postby Dans » Wed Jul 03, 2013 2:17 pm

Who do you think will have more value over the next 4 years in a 12 team mixed league 5x5 keeper? Desmond Jennings or Zack Wheeler? Thanks!

My immediate reaction is Jennings, but I'd like this question to be asked in 2014! We already have a good sense of what Jennings' basement is, and a 20-20 guys is nothing to scoff at. The question is whether, at age 26 going on 27, he's in his "prime" and what you see is what you get. I tend to favor a hitter over a pitcher when comparing, and so if you tell me he's a lock for 20-20 at minimum I'll give him a chance to improve his place discipline a bit over that span. We know Wheeler has the "potential" to be a dominant ace, but sitting here in July of 2013 I need to see more from him.

Hope that helps!

Ditto. Asking what type of player Wheeler will be over the next 5 years is impossible to answer and you can just as accurately pull out a Magic 8-ball. Who knows? For every Kershaw there are numberous Phil Hughes. He could be an ace...he could be a flop...her could end up mediocre. With Jennings you have a floor which is not too shabby. You probably do not have the upside to be an elite round 1-2 player, but at least you have a fairly decent mid-leveel fantasy worthy OF in the worst case (barring injury of course).

I agree with the two above. If I had to say right now it would be Jennings hands down.
