DateQuestionAnswer
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)You guys seem low on Austin Hays, what do you expect from him this year if in fact he is in the opening day outfield for the O's?
(Paddy from Ireland)
Oh, ~15% better than league average hitter, power over hit, solid corner D, what is that nowadays, Matt Joyce? Corey Dickerson? (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Has it gotten to the point that Andrew McCutchen can be dropped in shallow leagues? In an OPB league, I have Cutch, Bautista and Cain (+ injured Pollock) as my OF, with Yasmany Tomas, Puig, Dickerson, Broxton and Holliday available. Which (if any) of those FAs merit dropping Cutch, Bautista or Cain?
(matzabal from CO)
First off, that must be some kinda shallow league with those dudes floating around in the FA pool. Corey Dickerson's literally been a top-20 overall player in standard 5x5s, and Broxton & Puig have both been top-100 guys. I like Broxton best of the bunch, but hard to argue with Dickerson's production thus far. I'd probably figure out a way to grab both, with Dickerson's hot hand the priority. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)Prefer Corey Dickerson or Tyler Naquin - ROS and keeper?
(AJ from Ottawa)
I'll take Naquin ROS. He's hit well over his head, but he's also made very real adjustments to unlock nascent power and play more to the strengths of his swing this year. Tough call for keeper, I might still lean Dickerson. This has been a year full of adjustment, bad luck, and battle against many more shifts in a much worse ballpark. He's produced god-awful numbers on balls in play against secondary stuff this year after handling off-speed stuff and benders just fine in his career leading up to this year. I'd need more evidence that that's a new norm if I'm giving up on him at 27.

Big up the Champion called Allyson Felix. You take the medal crown from Jackie Joyner-Kersee, you've had a good day, regardless of whether it feels that way.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF6dTAhdOuA (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Might Corey Dickerson hit more extra base hits than singles this season? It seems a reasonable assumption.
(alexjbreen from Brooklyn)
I don't think he will, though it's pretty strange that it's somewhat reasonable (Kenny Ducey)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Corey Dickerson?
(The Coreys from Coreyville)
He's making me look not good.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=25796 (Nick Shlain)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)OBP keeper league, Yasel Puig or Corey Dickerson? Or are they pretty close?
(Tim from Maryland)
Only reason it's close is because it's OBP. I can't say no to Puig though. It could be an AL-Only, Pitcher-Only no players with the initials YP league, and I'd still find a way to get him on my roster. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)There's been a lot of preseason buzz on Corey Dickerson. Do you think he'll produce at the same level as 2014 and flirt with a .300/30/100 season over 600+ PA? Or will he end up in a platoon?
(Jape82 from Ottawa)
You never know how much Coors Field is going to inflate a guy's numbers. That said, Coors or not, the .300/30/100 hype is a little optimistic. I would guess they'll continue to use him against 80 percent righties, as they have the past two seasons. (R.J. Anderson)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)If my OF (and DH) spots are already going to be filled with Trout, Harper, Polanco and Betts, does it make sense to draft Corey Dickerson anyway? Or do I address other areas of roster need?
(RatedRookie from Atlanta)
NBDKBD

With that outfield you could probably do whatever you wanted to and still end up ok. I mean I'd try to address other areas of need, but damn son. How'd you get all that? (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig Who would you rather keep in a NL only, one catcher league: Corey Dickerson at $6 or Devin Mesoraco at $1? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Great question: I'll take Mesoraco because even with a small step back he's a monster value at that price. If you can't keep Dickerson you should be able to get plenty in a trade for him at that price. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)When did Ben change his name to Michelle?
(Holly from Dallas)
It's always been that way. He's pulling a McKenzie Corey Dickerson on us. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Struggling to figure out what to do with Corey Dickerson given the looming platoon possibilities. Keep him over Yelich or Hosmer (5x5 OBP)?
(Dan from Toronto)
Even if he's platooned, it's strong side so that will still be substantial PA. I can't really cut any of those three, but I'd chop Hosmer before the others at this point. (Paul Sporer)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Corey Dickerson ever be a GUY?
(Hunter from Charleston)
That's a vague term. I thought it was usually assigned to prospects to determine whether or not they'll stick and be real MLBers in which case I'd say yes. But if you're using it to mean whether or not he'll be a STAR, I'm not sure on that. The stadium helps for sure, but it's too early to tell, so I'd lean no. He wasn't a huge prospect. I liked him this year (paid $14 in NL only and ignored Blackmon until he got going in April), but I was buying the PT and stadium with solid skills (it was later in the auction which popped his price up a few bucks and I was flush). (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)what do you think Of an A.J. Burnett trade for Corey Dickerson in deep NL only, partial keeper league? Enoying the chat, thanks Paul!
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL)
I'd prefer Dickerson side, but it's a fair trade. I think Burnett should be better than his low-4.00s ERA thus far. (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Dickerson or khris davis ROS? Will Dickerson have limited playing time once Cargo is back?
(josh from boston )
They're very close, but with Cargo and Cuddyer hurt, I wouldn't worry about his PT right now. I'd take Davis if power was the primary need. I'd lean Dickerson if across the board offense was the bigger concern (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Free Corey Dickerson!!
(SK from Boston)
Why? (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)I own Corey Dickerson and think he can provide offensive value but can he handle CF? What grade defender is he in center?
(Mike from Denver)
I haven't seen much of him in center but I think he's probably their best guy there. He should get that job eventually and I like his fantasy value this year. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any NL-only 4th OF'ers or equivalent that you really like? I'm thinking of someone along the lines of Allen Craig a few yearsa ago that flashed some promise but was in line to back up at the start of the season.
(mj1453 from chicago)
I like Drew Stubbs for the Colorado factor and because Corey Dickerson is no sure thing, Jon Jay as a sneaky value proposition behind the oft-injured Peter Bourjos, and Nate McLouth as a sneaky source of speed even as a backup. (Mike Gianella)
2014-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Corey Dickerson get enough playing time to be valuable in a 12 team NL only league? Ditto for Ruggiano and Juan Francisco.
(higgsboson from Guelph)
Yes, definitely on Dickerson. I like Fran more than Rugg (Paul Sporer)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think wins the spring battle between Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson?
(Nick from Vegas)
I've never been so torn in my life. (Jason Parks)
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike, rank the following outfielders for 2014: Avisail Garcia, Corey Dickerson, and Desmond Jennings. Thanks!
(James from Chicago)
Hey James.

Of those 3 OF, I would rank Jennings at the top. He is the most proven of the trio and most likely to get a full season's worth of playing time. Garcia is 2nd. He will probably play all season for the White Sox, and has enough speed to make him a slight sleeper candidate. Dickerson is at the bottom. His numbers for the Rockies weren't great, and I'm not convinced yet that he wasn't a product of hitter-friendly Colorado Springs. Maybe he gets a full season of AB for the Rockies, but maybe he doesn't. Josh Rutledge was considered a no-brainer $20 earner but had OBP issues and flopped. Dickerson has similar OBP issues. If you can't get on base, you're going to have problems, even in COL. (Mike Gianella)
