I got him in round 15 of a 6x6 (OPS & HLD) 12 team keeper.

In expert drafts he's going about 240th pick. In Yahoo, his ADP is 282.

I think the closer your draft is to opening day the more he rises up into maybe the 9th-12th round

I highly doubt he'll be on any of my teams and I really wouldn;t see any value in him untill round 17+ in a 12 teamer. I think somebody will find him too sexy to resist before that stage in the draft.

In my 12 team, keeper, money league draft today, Gordon went in the 12th round, 134th overall. I had two picks in that round 6 spots down from the guy who snagged him up and planned on using one of my picks for him. Wound up with Chris B. Young instead. Oh well.

3B is very deep in a shallow league so I'd grab him pretty early, in a deeper league you can't really afford to chase young guys who may or may not have a job quite so early and I'd take him around round 17 or so.

I like Chris Young waaay better this year, cant say for the future though... I think Chris Young, outside of the cafe, is underrated. Starting CF, leadoff hitter, in one of the best hitters parks, in a good lineup, whats not to like.

If Young stays healthy and avoids any extended slumps, then he should get plenty of SB/HR and his value obviously is higher in a keeper.

20 team league draft last night, non-keeper, Alex Gordon went 169th overall.
