While I think he's a decent low buy, he's probably not going to repeat his SB or power numbers he put up last year. Rollins seems to follow a pattern of a strong year or two followed by 2 "down" years. In 2001, Rollins broke into the league as a regular with a bang with 14 HR, 46 SB, and a respectable .274 avg. However, In 2002 he hit only .245. In 2003 his 20 SB's were much lower than his average of about 33/year and hit .263.
But he had another great year in 2004, followed by another solid effort last year. So I can see why he's slumping again this year based on past history.
If you look at his splits, he's 20 points higher on his career avg after the all star break while the rest of his fantasy cats are pretty even. I'd expect him to finish at around .265 at best with 25 sb and 11 HRs. Modest numbers, but top 12 ss numbers nevertheless.

Over 115 runs scored the last two years would help any team.
He's only played 5 full seasons. They avg out to .275 12 HR's 60 RBI's 35 steals and 100 runs a year in his only 5 yrs in the league. He is what he is and I would bet his numbers come very close to those career numbers before the year is over. He is 27 yrs old and there is no reason I can see that he doesn't turn this whole thing around again.
