2011 Fantasy Projections, No. 52: Milwaukee Brewers’ Rickie Weeks: Draft With Caution

After failing to deliver a full season since his debut in 2005 due to injuries and general suckiness, Rickie Weeks finally broke out last season, posting a dynamic 112-run, 29-HR, 83-RBI, 11-SB, .269-BA line at the second base position.

Game No. 11 – Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs Randy Wells was the story of the first half of this game, striking out six batters through four, all against the Brewers’ one through three batters (Rickie Weeks, Corey Hart, Ryan Braun). With two outs in the fifth, Rickie Weeks worked a nine-pitch at-bat, forcing Wells to labor for the first time all day. After fouling off three pitches and running the count full, Weeks delivered the Brewers’ first runs of the day, whacking a two-run double into the left-field corner that tied the game...
