I think Goldschmidt proved he could hold his own last season. While I think that despite his k rate he has shown his ability to adjust to MLB pitching and a pretty good eye. What I'm curious to see this year is if he can start to be a bit more consitent in the power department. Went thourgh some some long dry spells last yeat. Do you guys think he has a good chance of hitting 35+ HR this year?

I see him more likely in the 25-30 range, with part of the jump from last season's 20 driven by playing full time for the whole season (no Overbay 2x a week)and part of the jump due to continued maturity, but 35 is probably a stretch.  Not out of bounds, but I wouldn't bank on it in setting up my team.

A player I targeted heavily last year, gonna ease off a bit this year. I assume his ADP will be much higher, maybe not worth it, while I still feel he's legit I think I may have overestimated him just a bit.

I was thinking just the opposite actually, with the depth at 1B I fig he still has agood adp.  I supp it all depends on where he end up on the board.

I'm not keeping him so he will probably be awesome.  If I can throw him back and get him for cheaper than the 22 bucks i have him for now I'll be happy.  I will still be targetting even though i will have a full CI.  He has his flaws (long HR droughts, Wierd Lefty/righty splits) but the overall package and youth are very intriguing.

Long HR droughts? Did he have those in the minors too? I wouldn't put too much stock in his HR frequency in his first full season.

I like 25-30 HR for him.

You 100% accurate.  I was basing that off of last year.  I also like him for 25-30 HRs in a full season and I feel that he tops 100 RBIs as well.  Add on 10-15 SBs and you have a very solid first baseman.

Hoping for 280 BA and 30 hr's this year. I will probably have him higher than most once I do my rankings.

I expect a spike in power and drop in SB.  30+ homers and 10ish SB.  Avg should be solid.

I agree, I think he will have 10-15 steals, which for a 1B is very very solid.

Goldy does have upside.  But he also comes at a risk.  He is young, still K's a lot, and is coming off of a year in which he exceeded expectations.

That's why it all depends on where his ADP is for me... I think he will go around where Hosmer was going last year... around 4-5 round

I agree. His K's make me nervous but he still managed an impressive BA last season. To be honest he's on my draft list this year. He's legit IMO.

It looks like he's going in round 4-5, which is just a bit to rich for my blood.  I like him in round 6 because the steals won't be there.

I think he will go a little higher too when draft day comes... I just think most people will see the avg steals and homer potential and start hyping him up.
