Top Five Offensive Fantasy Players the rest of the season...

I don't think Helton being ahead of Bonds is clearly a no-brainer. So far, Bonds is pretty much beating him in every category, and if your league counts OPS forget about it.

Beltran
Arod
Soriano
Pujols
Helton

I put Beltran number one because I believe he will be on a contending team by the end of the year. I agree that you cannot disregard Soriano because his 2B eligibility is huge. Finally, Bonds does not make my list in 5x5 because as the year continues he will be walked more and more. Now if you use extended categories obviously I would include him near the top.

But in the end in a 5x5 league, Bonds' average won't help your team as much as Helton's b/c of the few AB's Bonds gets. And Bonds' runs and rbi totals won't be near Helton's by season' end b/c of how bad the Giants are and he doesn't get many opportunities to drive in runs.

Pujols
Beltran
ARod
Helton

I'd also include Sheff, Soriano, Manny, Sexson ( Healthy ) and Rolen.

acsguitar, are you a Marlins fan by any chance?

Bloody Nipples wrote:Beltran is underrated, even by those who place him 3rd behind Arod and Pujols. I think he will surpass Pujols, if not Arod too, this year, and reach 40-40. He is a better version of Soriano with the average thrown in. My analogy is that he is the Kevin Garnett of baseball. They are similar in that they get every category, and guess what, Garnett was the MVP of the NBA, and probably also the MVP of fantasy basketball. Look for great things from Beltran this year and for years to come.


Actually, the weakest part of Beltran's game is his average. I think Sorianos avg will be higher than Beltrans this year.

Beltrans Avg Soriano's avg
99 294
00 247
01 306 268
02 273 300
03 307 290
AVG 288 287

What does that have to do with anything?

I don't like him for one.

Top Five offensive players:

1) Johnny damon -- he really needs to shave/cut that bird's nest

2) bonds -- he's not only offensive, he's also arrogant and an @$$

3) randall simon -- sausage: need I say more?

4) pedro -- he is a crybaby. the only reason MLB hasn't suspended him for various things (including that ball-strike argument delineating the strike zone) is because if they did it might cause a revolution in Boston

5) robbie alomar ... spitting.

scaricty only helps if that is turned into an advantage. soriano plays the most scarce position, yet still, people pciked two players on average ahead of him. At the end of the day, you still gotta take the best stats. beltran was absically 30-30 last year and missed over 100 at bats. entering the prime of his career as well. what's not to like.

he is very similar to kevin garnett in that regard. beltran will get you above average numbers - excellent numbers in every category.

still give me arod over the rest of the bunch. I'll take soriano over beltran too, but only because of the 2B factor. if sori were an OF I'd probably take beltran
