20.2 2.1 100%
Avg Pick #20... in a 12 teamer means he's near the end of the 2nd round. And you assume this is a little inflated because of the keeper/dynasty leagues where he should be going ahead of a lot of players because of his talent/age....
Get your facts str8 sir... before running your mouth about stuff you dont even take time to research...
From the responses on here it appears many of you are related to Upton by blood or have taken him as your lover.
There are much safer and better picks in the 1st and/or 2nd round than Upton -- it's that simple. I would rather have: Kinsler, Tulo, Holliday, Wright, Miggie, Adrian Gonzo ... you know players that have proved their worth year after year instead of a guy that will either blow up or crush your team.
I'll take Jay Bruce 8-10 rounds later.

Your right, I'd take each one of them except for maybe Gonzo before I'd take Upton. They are safer. But I think your missing the point that he's got more potential than any of those guys and COULD have a 30 homer, 100 rbi, 30 sb, 100 run, 320 avg type of year
considering all of those players u mentioned except Gonzo are already off the board by the time J Up has been drafted this year. just keep drafting your declining vets and see how it works out for you. league are won by guys that outperfom their projections....jay bruce v justin upton is a laughable comparision.
proven their worth. I like all those guys listed but with YOUR thinking, Tulo has had two good seasons, not in a row and only one that stole over 10 bases. He's going in top 12 picks in a lot of leagues, idiot. Wright had 10 hr last year, doing it year after year?? Kinsler?? He put up 1 studly season. (i think when healthy he is great, but by your standards he's a fluke).
