Saw a projected depth chart on ESPN that had him starting in LF over Seth Smith and Ian Stewart. Looking at his rookie season in what's far from a hitter's park in OAK, Gonzalez hit 22 doubles in just 302 AB. While he only hit 4 HR, these doubles could translate to a lot of pop at Coors Field with another year of development for the 23-year old.

Is this a guy that I should be keeping my eye on waiver-wire wise or even spending a late-round flier on? With Tavares gone, I think he's got a shot at the leadoff spot...

Crap in one hand and an ESPN depth chart in the either and... Well, you get the picture. Gonzalez will definitely be someone to watch in the spring -- where he's playing, where he's batting, etc. But as of right now, he's a flier in NL-Only leagues as a potential sleeper and he's undrafted in mixed leagues. In the spring that could change.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

If you're going to go for sleepers in Colorado, do a Ryan Spilbourgs. I like the 15/15/300 potential he brings late in drafts. I've been struggling to figure out if I should be taking him or someone else like Fred Lewis or Elijah Dukes late. I'm sure I'll end up with all three on various teams.
