I've heard his upside is comparable to a Jeff Kent with more speed

I don't think he has the power to ever match Kent's HR or doubles totals.

Hitting at the top of the order for a full season, I can see Young being better this year than last year.

A 20/20 season is not out of the question, but you should expect something more along the lines of 15/15.

I think he will help you in average and in runs scored, his additional SB's are nice, and his power is improving. The kid is on his way up IMO.

I'd like to see him get a little more selective at the plate. His k/bb ratio is terrible. Other than that, I believe that his power can still improve some. 15/15 isn't a bad target and 20/20 is possible, but 15/15 is more likely. Not a bad option at the shallowest position in fantasy ball this year. :-)
