Shannon's been a great fantasy player in the past, but I think that reign is over. There was a time when he stole 50+ bases. Not anymore, you'd be lucky if he stole 10 this year. There was a time that he hit 20+ Home runs. Not anymore, you'd be lucky if he hit 10 this year. Shannon has a solid average and enough speed to be an asset at the leadoff spot, but he's slowed by a hamstring injury, and his power seems to be in the 10-15 home run range. These two factors limit his value as a fantasy player. Hardly worth having in a Yahoo 5x5 league.
