Other than injuries, what is there not to like about Weeks? He has serious power and good plate discipline with speed. He will be a top 5 2B, barring any catastrophic failure. Perhaps as soon as 07. I'll be definitely snagging him next season.

I see what you're saying, and essentially I agree with you. I guess my point was more that I'm not going reach to take the 3rd/4th/5th 2B off the board when I feel I can wait and get similar value (or some upside) taking the 9th/10th/11th 2B off the board.

But...he had 85 runs and 85 RBIs this year, despite missing a lot of AB's early in the season. He also had 53! doubles. You always hear that doubles hitters can turn into HR hitters, so it's not out of the realm of possibility to see a line of .315 - 90 runs - 90 RBIs - 12 HRs. That would be just fine for my 2b.

Bill Hall only had 4 GS/GP so he doesn't qualify at 2B even under Yahoo's lax rules.

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.
A player will gain eligibility at a new position after five starts at
that position, or 10 total appearances at that position.
At the beginning of the Fantasy Baseball season, Yahoo! Sports placed
all players into positions based in part on information from official
rosters, but focusing mainly on past performance. Some players appear in
multiple position lists and are eligible to fill any of those positions.
Please note the following conditions that apply to a player's position
1. A player's position eligibility will not be adjusted prior to the
beginning of the season. (If a third baseman is playing first base
exclusively during spring training, he will not become eligible at 1B
until after he meets the criteria for regular-season games played
2. Players will not lose positional eligibility during the season, even
if they do not appear at the position throughout the season.
3. It is not possible to customize this setting within Custom Leagues.
All leagues are subject to the same constraints.
Gaining eligibility at a new position:
If a position player makes 10 appearances (or 5 starts) at a new
position during this season, he will become eligible to play that
position in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball.
Pitchers need to make three starts to become eligible as a starter and
five relief appearances to qualify as a reliever.
To find the number of games in which a player has appeared at a certain
position, click on their name. You will be taken to their Player
Profile. From there, click on the "Career" link. You will be able to
view the player's statistics for the season, and the number of games
played at each position.
Players will not necessarily be eligible for all positions listed in
their Player Profile.
