Fantasy Baseball: Value HR Options
Don’t panic if you missed out on the big boppers in the early rounds. There are plenty of values later on in the draft.
Russell Branyan - No way he matches the 31 he hit last year, but 25 should be within reach.
Chris Davis - He has the potential. It’s going to take a gut check to roll with Davis though after a disappointing 2009 season.
Jermaine Dye - First he’ll need to find a home. When he does he should settle in with 25+ HRs.
Garrett Jones - He hit 21 last year. He’s shown some pop in the minors. He’s one I can’t trust fully, but should come at a good value.
Paul Konerko - Not a sexy name any more, in part because of some low past batting averages, as well as his age, but he’s averaged 27 HRs the past three years.
Kevin Kouzmanoff - He’s been more of an RBI guy the past couple of years, but Kouzmanoff‘s escape from San Diego could lead to an increase in HR production.
Matt LaPorta -Had 7 HRs in 52 game debut with the Tribe last year. Could triple that or more in a full season.
Ryan Ludwick - Ludwick took a step back last year, but still has 30 HR potential.
Cody Ross - He’s averaged 23 HRs the past two years. A bump into the 27-30 range isn’t out of the question.
Travis Snider - Snider has just 11 HRs in 101 games, but is loaded with power potential.
Ian Stewart - Lack of positional depth along with his 2B/3B eligibility keep Stewart from being too much of a bargain. The average is tough to swallow, but he’ll bring you power.
Nick Swisher - It’s hard to imagine a Yankee coming as a value, but Swisher gets overlooked in his stacked lineup.
Josh Willingham - Quietly averaged 21.5 HRs over the past four years.
