I dunno, if BJ was dropped could be a deep league. I'd dump Reynolds unless you can sell high on him.

Drop Walker or Simmons. Don't think too many people would go pick up Simmons. But you definitely have enough talent to pick up and stash BJ. Hopefully he can start hitting or getting the SB's when you need them.

Agreed. Reynolds is bound to hit the wall sooner than later. He'll have his random hot streaks, but most of his season is dedicated to striking out, with the occasional HR.

Either way, Upton should be owned easily over Walker when you have Zobrist and Phillips.  Walker would have been dropped weeks ago if I owned those two players.
