“He sports a .380/.418/.606 batting line over the last three weeks with three homers, eight steals (caught zero times for you net steal players), and 15 runs scored.”
In a 12 team mixed league with everyone fighting for 3 solid OF’s. It is IMPOSSIBLE to find 36 quality guys playing as well as Coco is right now. It just is.
He was worth an add 2 weeks ago. I’ll ride out his hot streak as long as possible.

While I am well aware/capable of figuring out on Yahoo that Crisp is ranked 13th over the last month, his 289th rank for the season (yes I’m aware he hasn’t played the full season – 202 AB total) and O-Rank of 489 allows me to put my starting OF spots towards someone else. This is Coco Crisp we’re talking about… who has played a whopping 101 games over the last 2 seasons.
If there’s a roster spot sitting there unused OR if you are lucky enough to be handcuffing Jenks w/ Putz/Thornton (both going on the DL today) AND Crisp is available, go for it. If not, let’s keep in mind – this is Coco Crisp.
Crisp is playing like a serious redass right now. Take a flyer and ride it out.

It’s idiotic to reject Crisp based on o-ranking and full season. Kendry Morales has a great o-ranking too. Maybe you should add him now. o-ranking is a worthless number used to hoodwink people into making bad trades. Player value changes significantly during the season. You think Adam Lind should still be ranked as a top outfielder?
In the games he’s been in, Crisp has been electric. He’s raking now. To win in fantasy, you don’t play names, you play numbers. I wouldn’t drop a higher ranked outfielder necessarily, but if you can make a roster spot and one of your boys is flailing right now (mike stanton), you can always bench him and play Crisp. Crisp isn’t a bum… he’s just been an injury fest. If he gets injured, cut him. But right now he’s got speed, avg, and a little pop to boot.
