Who's your biggest high risk high reward guy this year?

Postby curious_george_43545 » Thu Feb 17, 2005 11:53 pm

I'd say Randy Johnson for the fact that if he pitches like last year he could easily be the Fantasy MVP while he could also crumble under the pressure of New York or get injured easily also at his age. So whats yours?

Giambi can be a high reward guy, but I wouldn't expect you would have to take much risk to get him. Most likely a late round filler pick with a ton of upside.

Nomar and Pedro are both going high enough in the draft with the "injury waiting to happen" label attached to them. Both can be absoulte studs if they make it through a healthy season.

Beltre. I'm still trying to figure out if I'm willing to take the chance.

And of course Prior.

Absolutely. Also Beltre should be on that list, along with Oliver Perez and Jake Peavy. Guys that have been great for one year and one year only, basically.

Magglio Ordonez. You will have to throw down a 6th or 7th round pick down on him if you want him.

I will pay whatever it takes to get PRESTON WILSON and expect him to have an awesome season.
