Grandy had a down year last year like most of the rest of his team. His 2012 showed the worst-case scenario with him - he's still a nice option for speed, power, runs. I'd definitely take him as an OF2/3 depending on where he's going. I expect him to come at a discount this year.

Comparing him to Dunn is a bit ridiculous - it was a bad year.

yes but teixeira numbers are decreasing along with a-rod, ichiro and even jeters over the last so many years. I think the team is just getting old. the only player on the team who kept his usual type numbers are cano and he is getting older also. they will also have an old youkilis in the lineup and a rookie catcher. they will start with a middle IF as their DH.

just something to take note of I am not arguing I hope granderson does do good.

I think what surprised me the most about Granderson last year was he wasn't stealing as much. He won't come close to two years ago numbers, but I think he can rebound on the steals a little bit while providing the power numbers he had last year.

I think what surprised me the most about Granderson last year was he wasn't stealing as much. He won't come close to two years ago numbers, but I think he can rebound on the steals a little bit while providing the power numbers he had last year.

A few reasons I feel that happened.

1.  Career high in HRs, it's hard to steal a whole lot when 43 of your hits you can't steal.
2.  Career low in OBP (as far as full seasons go) by a wide margin.
3.  Getting older.

Do I think he will steal more than 10 bases this year?  I certainly do.  But I don't think he'll top the 25 bases he stole in 2011, no.  Conservatively I would say Granderson will probably somewhere between 18 - 22 SBs.

I have seen some what of a trend in Grandersons year to year SB totals.

2007:  26
2008:  12
2009:  20
2010:  12
2011:  25
2012:  10

So if that means anything he should bounce back up into the 20's, for whatever reasoning lol.

I agree that Grandy makes a nice bounceback choice in roto leagues as a #2 OF, but man having owned him the last few seasons, I'm still steering clear in H2H/cat based leagues.  Those prolonged cold streaks are just brutal

What worries me with Granderson is that he completely forgot how to hit lefties again last season.

I just looked at those numbers... 76ks in 247 plate appearances and 216 at bats is pretty bad. He did have 14 homers but still he needs to be able to be able to hit them better or he might not be worth starting for your fantasy team when he faces a starter who is a lefty

Disappointing for the Yankees, but this might help grandersons fantasy value if this makes any sense especially if his stock really drops

Not for keeper or dynasty ... and Curtis is one of my keepers (we keep 9) and I don't have a better alternative.  This hurts but I guess it could be worse (season ending?).

It's good in the sense that he will only miss about a month and a half of actual games that count so it won't really kill your season. No preseason injuries are good for keeper leagues, but in a redraft his stock could fall more then four rounds and if that is the case I might grab him. I also think the Yankees (and granderson) try to run more and try to create more runs instead of just scoring them by the way of the homer

Another nice guy and a hard worker suffers an injury and has to miss 10 weeks.  How come a cheater like Braun can't be the one getting drilled and injured?

One dollar? Just for missing six weeks? If he is going for one dollar in any draft I would be a buyer, but I don't think there is any way he will be that cheap

Now who's going to strike out 190 times for the Yankees this season?
Do you really care who is on my team? I have Mike Trout and Arian Foster in keeper leagues in their respective sports.

I remember seeing an article on fangraphs that he was a top candidate (due to some statistical measures, ill look for the article later) to have major regression this season, so I was going to avoid him like the plague. I am intrigued to see how much this injury discounts him though, as I tend to be patient with players and like to take risks on discounted players.
