Right now this year hes playing like 1st round value (and again I doubt he was drafted higher than say that 10th round figure this year for the most part. I didnt see him going anywhere that high but maybe in some leagues, but even still hes outproducing that)
I dont think its crazy to see him produce like a 1st -5th round type player next year after 2 very helpful fantasy years (and he provided some production in 07 as well).
I have seen enough from him to know he can help a fantasy team. Problem is though his price will really be inflated..so even if he does well you are getting exactly what you paid, or overpaid, for and seeing no "profit" on a low investment. Even worse is the high drfat pick and he DOES totally fall apart.
In some leagues everyone might let the guy drop to a reasonable price out of that same risk and eventually someone will pull the trigger as a value pick/bid. If youre in an auction, what a great guy to throw out 1st as im sure there will be many varying opinions on him. No one will be 100% sure what to bid.
I had this same discussion a lot around this time last year about Quentin. Great to get on that low investment but how is it working out for people who spent 2nd and 3rd round picks on this guy (and I did see him go there). I know he got hurt but thats the problem - he gets hurt every year. At some point health is a skill. Even if he was healthy and he matched what he did last year (before he got hurt at the end)..you got what you paid for at full cost.
Better to get the "next Reynolds" or "next Quentin" on the cheap IMO
On the position talk: 3B really fell this year. For a while 3B just wasnt an issue in most leagues, people worried about 2B/SS/C to varying degress depending on league format and peoples opinions about what was scarcer
in my larger leagues this year i only had trouble at times with SS or 3B all other positions (including 2B and C) didnt really have any issues for me. That's not a good sign for 3B. Taking out two 1st round type guys in most leagues (Miggy and Braun) from that 3B pool didnt help that!
I wouldnt invest a lot in him, but great for people who got him at a cheap price and can keep him for a low amount/low pick.
