Are Dunn, Rios even worth late picks?
Well, this is why the games are played, and 2012 fantasy leagues are not decided by 2011 statistics. Players produce different numbers, some of them much better than the previous season. Two members of the White Sox lineup had miserable 2011 seasons, as if you weren't aware, in Adam Dunn and Alex Rios. A year ago, fantasy owners had visions of Dunn's first 50-homer season in their optimistic heads, and Rios was coming off a solid 2010 (21 home runs, 34 steals, .284 batting average). Dunn was the 37th pick, on average, in ESPN live drafts; Rios was 52nd.
