If you're in a deep league, Schafer might be up for a job, and he'll get you some stolen bases. You know what baseball writing needs more of? Tables!

We know he's on a short leash, so a 1-for-12 start to the season with six strikeouts is concerning. I said stay away, but others couldn't pass up the history of 50 home runs plus steals. It's too early to panic, but Upton has less wriggle room than most. - Brad Johnson

He appears primed to open the season in the second spot of the order, which will certainly help with his production. That said, he's still stuck out 21 times in 60 AB and has just 2 doubles and 1 triple to go along with the HR. If he's going to strike out that much he's not going to stick at the top of the order, and then the over value is going to plummet. There's upside, but don't consider him a lock to produce. - Eric Stashin

At 29, Upton is in the prime time of his life. He's batting .297 this spring with four steals. There's a chance that, slotted down in the Braves lineup where there's less pressure, he comes into his own. There's also a chance that he reverts to what he was doing: .240 average, 20-some dongs, 30-some steals, 70-some RBIs. Wait, that's not that bad! There's no way B.J.'s gonna suck as bad in 2014 as he did in 2013. - Pete Bothum
