Kemp is set to EXPLODE in 2012
While many of the infield positions are low on top level talent the Outfield position is chalk full of studs.  Matt Kemp and Ryan Braun lead this group.  You could make a case for either player as the #1 overall player selected in your draft.  As you continue to scan the list you will see players such as Curtis Granderson, Jose Bautista, Justin Upton, and Jacoby Ellsbury.  Any one of which has a chance to carry a fantasy baseball roster.  It is also filled with young guns like Giancarlo Stanton, and Desmond Jennings.  Our strategy in most drafts is to hold off on the Outfield position as you can grab difference makers like Matt Holliday, and Shane Victorino in the mid rounds. 

Sleeper Candidates:
Desmond Jennings- This youngster has all the tools to be a 5 tool stud.  In a small sample size last season he was dominant.

Shin-Soo Choo- With DWI and injuries in the rear view mirror we expect Choo to produce #s similar to years past

Steer Cleer:
Josh Hamilton- Back on the sauce and is always injured.  Let someone else grab him early

Jason Heyward- Sure to be drafted way too high.  Hasn't shown us why yet on the field

Nelson Cruz- Another china doll.  Don't let him sit on your DL.
