Brian Dozier

Projected to be drafted as the fifth second basemen

Brian Dozier is going to be on every “do not draft” list that you read this year. It’s not because he’s not a good player, rather that he’ll be drafted way too early in drafts.

Flying off the board as the fifth second basemen is just way too risky. You can draft a second baseman later in the draft who can provide value just as clean.

I would much rather wait for players such as Rougned Odor (who you can draft two or three rounds later) or Dee Gordon (who you can draft multiple rounds later). Odor and Gordon will give you tremendous upside and if you don’t draft Dozier you can draft players going around the same round such as Jake Arrieta or Giancarlo Stanton.

Arrieta can finish as the No. 1 starting pitcher and Stanton can lead the league in home runs and RBIs if he stays healthy. Don’t reach on drafting Brian Dozier this year.

I love fantasy sports more than you love most things in life. I am great at giving fantasy advice because if it doesn't work out, it's the players fault not mine. I love to help others with their fantasy sports questions and instead of following politics or other important topics that are going on in the world, I do fantasy research. Let me help you guys win your leagues and in daily sports.
