Very close honorable mention to Howie Kendrick and Kelly Johnson
Call me a homer, or maybe just a sucker, but I love Rickie Weeks this year, more than years past. I think he's finally past the wrist injury that dogged him for a season and half. After briefly being sent back down (very briefly, ~ 10 days), his line for the rest of the season (August 10th and on) was 150 AB, .273/.442/.553, with 44 R, 11 HR, and 15 SB (0 CS). A healthy season from him could showcase some serious R/HR/SB numbers, and I play in a league with OBP too, so I like him even more.
In fact, in general, I really like the guys this year that can give you that power/speed combo, like Upton, Phillips, Weeks, and Kinsler.

I'll let the other guys take the risk on him.
Weeks hasn't earned a top 10 slot yet IMO. Maybe if he can get his career avg over .250.
