I'm in a league which uses a 7x7, with the two extra offensive categories OBP and total bases. How high should Abreu go in a league like this? I have the 7 overall and project either Helton, Tejada, or Abreu available. Please rank these three in my league format.

Abreu has to be considered over the other two. He has a terrific OBP, hits with power, and his SB will help you in that category. Helton may have a higher BA and maybe hit more HRs, and Tejada is the better slugger, but when you throw OBP into the mix, Abreu should be your pick IMO :-b

Tejada is way below the other 2 in OBP but you have 6 other categories to consider. I think I'd rank Helton over Abreu even though Abreu's OBP will probably be higher because helton will lead in Average, RBI and runs and Total bases (Or he should anyway). Abreu has the edge in SBs and OBP.

My thought on Abreu vs. Helton is this: Helton should win 4 or 5 of the 7 categories this year over Abreu, but where Helton will give me nothing in the stolen base category, Abreu will at least contribute in every scoring category we use. But if it can be said Helton had an off year and has a chance to go back to .340, 45 HR, 120 RBI, 120 runs, 375 total bases, then Helton is the obvious choice. I just fear with no lineup protection, 30 HR, 100/100 is where he stays with a great avg/ob.

I'd definatly take Tejada. SS is so weak. You can find great outfielders and 1B later on. I'd get Tejada, just to get SS out of the way. The later shortstops will really mess you up in those seven stat categories. I've got Tejada ranked 5th overall.

But after Tejada...
2.) Helton
3.) Abreu

I do not expect Abreu to put up those types of numbers again. Helton is one of the most consistant players in FB.

I'd take Abreu, the guy produces in every category and knows how to take a walk. I'm pretty sure he was top 5 in OBP last year and I don't think it was just a career year, he should get pretty close to those numbers again.

I would put Helton and Abreu pretty close...probably with Abreu a little higher...I would wait on Tejada though... :-)

Abreu & Tejada are close, then it's Helton because 1st base is a deep position. It will be difficult finding that production at SS in later rounds.
