|Brock Holt the king of versatility |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/18/14) It kind of flew under the radar in Fantasy, but when Brock Holt started at shortstop Thursday against the Astros, he did more than just give rookie Xander Bogaerts a day off. He also became eligible at the position in standard CBSSports.com leagues, pulling off the rare feat of quintuple eligibility.
You're now able to use him at -- count them with me -- first base, second base, third base, shortstop and the outfield, though if you start him anywhere but shortstop, you're a real sucker -- a sucker, I tell you!
OK, not really. You probably just have a ton of infield depth. But no doubt, shortstop is where he's most valuable. It's by far the weakest position in Fantasy, and at the position, he stacks up with just about anybody.
No, really. He's been an everyday player, more or less, since May 17, and during that time, he ranks seventh among shortstops in Head-to-Head points leagues and ninth in Rotisserie. That's compared to 12th and 13th among third basemen.
Granted, much of that production is front-loaded, but he's still scoring a bunch of runs batting leadoff for the Red Sox. And if you have a weakness anywhere on the infield, he's now capable of filling it. That should apply to just about all Fantasy owners.

(7/24/14) Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt made his first start at second base Thursday at Toronto, becoming the first player in franchise history to start at every position besides pitcher and catcher.
Though, manager John Farrell said he has no plans to give Holt a start behind the plate any time soon.
"He's done a great job, there's no doubt," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "We like to think that because of injuries, it's opened up and created some opportunities for him. If we had our choice, we would've liked to avoid all that. ... But in light of what's taken place this year, it's one of the better stories. [He's] a guy we can plan around in a number of ways as we go forward."
