2013 Second Base Sleeperz™

Analysis based on 5x5 mixed roto non-keeper, all ADP values are from ESPN.

Neil Walker, ADP 133
Howie Kendrick, ADP 141
Sure they're boring, but that's why they're underrated.  They won't hurt you in any category.

Dan Uggla, ADP 150
Rickie Weeks, ADP 154
Low batting average guys, but expect their averages to be better than last year.  What they give up in average they make up for in the other categories.  Uggla for pure power, Weeks more well-rounded.

Josh Rutledge (SS), ADP 215
Good shot at 15/15 with an average that won't hurt you.  If he took a few walks I'd really love him.  Ideally he's in your MI spot but you could probably get away with starting him in 12 team mixed.  He'll be eligible at 2B and SS, a nice bonus.

Dustin Ackley, ADP 222
Roll the dice on this former second overall pick, who couldn't live up to the hype last year (I warned you).  However, he still managed to go 12/13 and score a bunch of runs.  His average could easily get up to .250 or better this year, and that's all he has to do at this price.

Jedd Gyorko, ADP 224
Rookie has the starting job in San Diego and he can hit. With Headley out he may play 3B for a month or two, check your league for his position eligibility.

Jemile Weeks, ADP 260
If he gets the starting job, a good source of cheap speed - with upside if he can ever hit for average again.

Matt Carpenter (3B), ADP 260
Should beat out that scrub Descalso.  Don't expect too much, but should hit for a decent average with some power.  Check your league, could have eligibility at 1B, 3B, and OF as well.
