Where will you draft Ken Griffey, Jr if at all?

I voted 11-15. I think he is worth the gamble there.

i am in the 15-20 range (depending on how my OF/util looks). i dont intend on drafting him but if i needed some power i would look for him there. every year someone says maybe grif will be healthy and drafts him between 11-15 and every year he goes down.

Im doing a slow post draft with 12 people right now and we are in the 16th round and Griffey is still available. As long as I have anything to do with it he will be on waivers at the start of the year because Im not drafting him anymore.

I drafted him in the 13th round next year, so I'll probably wait until the 18th round this year. Last year proved that even if he stays healthy, his average can drag down your team. He's my favorite player, but you have to be a fantasy owner first. ;-)

I guess common sense is, if it's near the end of the draft, you still need another OF, and he's the best available, you take him. But I won't take him in any significant rounds, based on the risk.

I doubt I'd face that issue, because: a) someone will probably take the risk earlier, or, b) he probably WON'T be the best available OF option when I do have to choose the last guy I need at that spot.

In other words, I'm done with him.

Griffey isn't draft-worthy unless you're in a very deep league. People will still take a flier on him because of his name but it's a waste of a draft slot. There are younger, higher upside players you should be taking a flier on like Victor M. last year. Last year was Griffey's most productive since '01 and he produced a whopping 20 HRs, 60 RBIs, 49 R along with a dismal .253 BA. That type of production from an OFer is free off the WW if you get in a bind.
