I would pass.

While Zimmerman had some injuries this year, Utley hasn't had an AB. Zimmerman is under performing and should rebound somewhat- he has an unlucky BABIP (meaning the AVG should go up) and a very low HR/FB (meaning his power should go up a bit too, but don't expect 2009/2010 power). He still hits in a potent lineup, so those runs and rbi will come.

Utley is a complete gamble at this point and also has an inferior lineup around him. Their positions don't matter either (Barney or Wiggs would move in your lineup but both would still be active hitters regardless of if you had Utley or Zimm).
