Jackie Bradley Jr. 2017 Outlook


Recommended Posts

FWIW rotochamp has the Sox lineup projected as such. 

 

Pedroia 

Bogaerts

Betts

Hanley

Sandoval

Moreland

Benintendi

JBJ 

Leon

 

The 5-7 spots are a question mark because of the uncertainty of Panda. I could see Benintendi working his way up into the 2 hole and pushing everyone down but I don't think JBJ hits higher than 6 in this lineup. That being said I still feel like he has plenty of value at his current adp.

Three reasons he won't hit at the top of the order:

  1. Dustin Pedroia
  2. Andrew Benintendi
  3. Xander Bogarts

If Benintendi doesn't move up to the top of the line-up then Mookie remains batting third instead of clean-up.  There is absolutely no room at the top of the line-up for JBJ.

 

 

 

They were talking about Eaton there, not JBJ.

No way in a weekly you can start JBJ. Even though he says he is a superhero and OK, with swelling at whatnot he will miss games no doubt.

Gaa Gaa Gaa Garbage. has been since shortly after the ASB last year. Had a few good games but went south most of the last 2 1/2 months

I should have paid attention when this was happening.

Although it is not uncommon for players to have 2 white hot months and be below average the rest of the season.   Justin Upton does it every season.

JBJ is an absurdly streaky hitter. He will kill your team for months, and carry your team for months. He's extremely frustrating to watch and own. He's also been injured this year making it harder for an already streaky hitter to get into any rhythm.

I parted ways with Bradley in my 12-team redraft league with 3 OF slots.  He will hit a few power binges, but I think the floor here is non-existent, and the ceiling not enough to justify holding in shallow formats.

I mentioned above that I dropped him in my 12-team, and he was just dropped by another owner in my 15-team as well.  Losing PT to Young means he might not even be much of an AL-only play at this point.

 

Definitely keeping an eye on him to look out for signs of one of his patented hot streaks though.  Just not worth a roster spot right now.

Of course the second you drop him he will go absolutely bonkers and your worst enemy will reap the rewards

 

Yeah, you have to be willing to risk that if you drop.  But you're also risking missing out on the next big thing with that roster spot being wasted on him.  This is what makes the game fun, right?  RIGHT?!?
