Had a sneaky good second half last season and with 2B being scarce with talent, I'm wondering if people think he can get back to his 2009-2011 form.  He doesn't appear to be getting much attention and I think he good provide good return on his ADP/Auction Value.

This guy has put up a pretty good line this spring. I know, I know, it's spring. Still, my interest is getting a slight tickle here.

I think he's turned off a lot of long-time players over the years with his propensity for injury and his incredible ability to go ice cold for months at a time...

That being said, I got stuck with him in one league as my starting 2B, and I actually don't feel that terrible about it.

I am buying.  As the OP stated, he had a solid 2nd half after a very poor start to the season.

2nd half:

.261 (in line with previous 3 year avg), 13 HRs, 51 runs and 10 SBs.

He's a little bit of an injury risk but with the other 2nd baseman he's been lumped with (Walker, Utley, Espinosa, Uggla, I'd take Weeks over them.  The power/speed combo is attractive.  Just hope he can stay on the field.

This guy has always been a headache, but at his ADP and who he's being drafted around, I finall feel like he holds good value, even if he doesn't live up t his full potential. .265 23 HR 77 RBI 100 R 19 SB

There was an article on mlb.com about the Weeks' brothers both trying to bounce back this year, and Rickie talked extensively about his ankle injury from the end of 2011 affecting his performance in the first half of 2012.

As someone who's torn ligaments in my ankle twice, I can tell you all that severe ankle sprains are one of the hardest things to get back to normal.  Took about a year for me both times to feel like I could just play (meaning run and react and not feel the ankle or think about it).  Roenike even talked about Rickie playing through the pain and having to deal with it.

Rickie talked about doing a lot of agility and flexibility work over the offseason to try to prevent injury this year.  IF he's healthy, he's one of the best power/speed guys at 2B, and he scores a ton of runs in that lineup, and posts very strong OBPs for those in OBP leagues.

nice to see him playing well out of the gate...doing a little bit of everything.

Getting on base, scoring runs and an SB.  Also went yard tonight...just hope he can stay on the field.

The talent is never the issue with Weeks.  Staying on the field is.

No doubt. My God this guy looks horrible right now. He's been awful since Aramis got hurt. Perhaps they should try moving him out of the cleanup spot, cause he's been a human windmill this whole week.

Does anyone think this guy will have any value this year?  He has been stinking it up for awhile now.

20 homers, 20 steals out of 2B. Will hurt your OPS but there's only one Robinson Cano. You're not getting a ton of value out of 2B.

Yep.  Second base is so incredibly shallow that you just leave Weeks in your lineup and collect the paycheck at the end of the season...

He has like 3 hits in his last 60 AB's.  

Last year he did this until like late July.  God I hate these guys who put up 80% of their stats in two 10 day hot streaks and SUCK the rest of the year. It's like 80% of the league.
