Eric Karabell lists his top 25 and I was pleased to see BP listed at #20. It is an insider article so if you have an account here is the link:

If you dont have an account I will cut and paste the comments for BP and the two above and below BP and their commenst.


18. Ichiro Suzuki: A must-get if you plan on taking Adam Dunn later.
19. Prince Fielder: I still think Ryan Howard has more upside though.
20. Brandon Phillips: Time for everyone to believe this is legit.
21. Ryan Braun: With the steals, could make the case for round one.
22. Carlos Beltran: It's not like he's too old to steal some bases.

BP has easily become my favorite player and I am thrilled to see he is getting the recognition he is due.

Brandon Phillips makes a much better fantasy player than real player...

On-base PCT is usually not a category in fantasy baseball...

But defense doesn't count in fantasy. And Brandon Phillips certainly does defense!

They are equal at worst, IMO.

He was 54th in the league in VORP last year, of course as you mentioned, that doesn't include defense. I still don't think the defense evens it out. His counting stats are much more impressive than his periperals...
