Noticed he didn't have a page in the index, and instead of bumping an archaic thread, I figured here we go...
What do people make of his 2nd half? I had pretty good expectations for Fowler, who completely flopped at the beginning of the year, but has been on an absolute tear the 2nd half of this year in fantasy to the tune of:
66 G, .290, 5 HR, 26 RBI, 49 R, 10 SB
His K:BB hasn't really changed, and he's sporting a .356 BABIP, but he's .342 for his career, so it doesn't seem overly inflated. Am I setting myself up to be fooled twice by him when I draft him next season hoping this will continue, the way I did this past Spring following a strong 2010 2nd half (he's surpassed that in 2011, but still...)??
Can he ever be the .275, 12 HR, 50 RBI, 100 R, 25 SB guy he's shown flashes of, and can be had late in drafts? I'd love to see .285 - .290 but he's just never shown the ability to sustain that over a long stretch.
