If you own Dee Gordon, you're playing with house money. Let's face it: He wasn't drafted in any but the deepest of leagues (or maybe just NL West-only formats!), so while you might feel a special connection for having uncovered him, remember not to get too attached.
Yes, the 25-year-old is a former top prospect who's been seeing a lot of time atop the potent Dodgers lineup. Yes, he's eligible at both second base and shortstop, which gives him a nice boost in fantasy utility. And yes, he currently leads the majors with 10 stolen bases.
Hey, it's not inconceivable that the super-speedy Gordon, who has 76 career swipes in a little over a full season's worth of plate appearances (726), could pilfer 50-plus if he remains healthy and hits enough to keep playing. But a reminder: Gordon has managed those 76 steals and 726 plate appearances across four different seasons, because the bat always has been a big question.
Could he stick in your lineup as a startable 2B, SS or middle infielder? Yes, but only if you're looking for steals with little else and absolutely no power. Otherwise, trading him while he's this hot and hitting this much will bring a lot more in return than you ever expected when you picked him up off waivers a week-and-a-half ago.
