Fantasy Baseball

Ok, so this is my first FP on TGP and I'll keep in team neutral.

 

I'm looking for a good OF'er for my fantasy team so I can drop my Yankee heavy picks.  I have Gardner, Swisher, and Granderson.  I'm intrigued by Ben Francisco.  He's been killing the ball so far.  My concerns after the jump.

1) His role when Brown comes off the DL.  Will "Cholly" (as I've seen some people on this blog refer to him) stay with Francisco or immediately start the rookie Brown?

 

2) Consistency.  Francisco is a career .267 average batter with a .331 OBP.   Although it's only a week into the season he's hitting .306 with a .375 OBP.   He's only logged 4 years of MLB experience and he's currently 29 yrs old.

 

Thoughts on picking up him or trading some of those OF'ers for a good 2b/SS?  My main 2b is Uggla and SS is Hanley.  (I think the NL east has the best available options for 2b and SS -- especially if you count Prado in the mix.  Nobody in my league has picked up Utley either because we can't make use of the "DL" feature for some reason)
