So Rutledge is available in the ESPN league in my signature block. This points league is heavvvvy on rbi's and homers, with a fair chunk for runs and bags. While I like Lowrie batting fifth, I'm feeling like his rbi's will be outweighed by Rutledge's fewer k's; more runs; and more bags. I'm guessing they'll be fairly even on homers. Plus I like Rutlege's ceiling a bit more...can you see where I'm going. What would you do....?

FYI, I need to keep my this would be a straight add/drop for Rutledge/Lowrie.

Ruledge will probably K more than Lowrie and never takes a walk.

That being said, I like Rutledge more in a standard 5x5 league, but if your scoring is hr/rbi heavy and K/BB matter Lowrie is probably a better pick as long as he's healthy. Healthy is a pretty big assumption though.
