Buxton did it again . At least to some of you . He has done this a few times before including last Sept. He goes on a nice run to lure you back. Including me twice before but not this time . Sure the stats were nice for three weeks or so but now we are back to the same player he was for 4 1/2 months before . 

Hes 5/28 over his last 7 games and a bunch of k's .

Good luck to those  of you that took the bait .

I truly cannot wait to see how he's ranked for next season. Such an enigma in so many ways but his second half has been fantastic.

If he finishes out the season playing like the new Buxton, he will go top 40-50 in drafts next year pretty easily, I would guess. 

Think round 13+ next year in 12 team leagues. He has done this before on September, no track record of success, and just look at the attitude of some posters whether justified or not the perception of failure is still there.

He's heating back up, but I'm not as optimistic as I was before because his K's have crept back up.  

 

His K-rate in his last 8 games is 37.5%.  Had it been somewhere in the 25% range, I would've chocked up his recent slump to just the ebbs and flows of a long season and still bullish about his prospects for 2018.   

 

Old Buxton seems to still be very much in play....

Looks like it's in the ballpark. Collette was saying that he would take him top 60 next year. Doesn't expect to get him though.

Any time you have a high pedigree guy flashing serious pop + speed like Buxton has been doing since his adjustment in his swing, they fly up the draft board. Especially once all the off-season rotoworld and fangraphs articles detail how legit the changes he's made have been. 

 

No doubt he goes in the early-mid rounds next year. Looks like he's legitimately turned the corner.

So you have him as a top 150 player?

 

Guessing you won't be landing Buxton anywhere.

Also, I feel after this year pitchers will be moving up the ADP lists pushing hitters back. SP has become scarce, at least serviceable ones. 

 

As for landing him already have Buxton 4/5 of my keeper leagues. Redraft next year you are right I wouldn't draft him in the first 6 rounds (pick 72 or earlier)
