Gibbons and Konerko

Postby DEF » Thu May 20, 2004 1:38 am

Both of these slumping semi-stars have started to show some signs of life in the last few days. Which do you think will be able to turn things around and be the more productive fantasy player the rest of the way?

18 views and not one opinion? Both are available in one of my leagues and I was looking for some thoughts on either as I consider picking one up. Anyone?

I'm still a big believer in Gibbons. His avg won't be great but I would take him over Konerko.

I had both konerko and gibbons on my team at the end of last year and they were helpful. I drafted konerko this year with my final draft pick and dumped him for overbay at the start of May. He is just too unreliable to start. Gibbons was drafted by another team and is on the free agent list now too. I guess he would have a better outlook than Konerko but I am not excited about either player. We have a pretty competitive 12 team h2h league and no one picked up either one. Burrell and Konerko were my two reclamation picks. Glad one is working out!

The issue with Gibbons is that he has a lingering injury that might affect his play throughout the year, so that breakout season may not happen this round. Konerko is apparently a headcase. I think either will provide similar results, just nothing great.

If you have the time or desire to keep track...start Gibbons against Right handed starters. Bench him against lefties. If you follow this plan throughout the year you will be happy with Gibby.
