After owning Adam Lind in 6 leagues last year, I am a enormous Lind fan... his three homer game in the fantasy championship week still has me
I would love to own him next year, but man his MDP is pretty high... is Lind now considered "never pay for a career year" fantasy players?
Lind is a bit tough to rank. I remember sitting at my draft in the 23rd round and mulling over Kendry Morales vs Adam Lind. I was really high on Morales going into last year (really I was) so I went with Morales. Both guys were OF eligible last year. Little did I know that both guys would end up being as good as they were. Needless to say, neither guy will be available that late this year.
I doubt I have Lind on any of my teams this year. I very rarely take an OF in the early-mid rounds. I either land a stud or wait around to get some late round bargains that are almost always there. If he were to slide way lower than he should slide, I'd take a look at him, but I doubt that happens. He certainly had a great year last season as a 25-26 year old. A .300+ average and 35 HRs certainly means that he becomes a player that has shoved his way into the top of the rankings when we're talking about outfielders.
He had a great season, but there is that fear that last year was a bit of a fluke.
