|Rickie Weeks did this last year|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/20/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is hitting .170, with three home runs, four steals, a .554 OPS and six doubles. If this sounds familiar, it's because he did essentially the same thing in 2012, hitting .155 with four home runs, two steals, a .569 OPS and five doubles through May 21.
Knowing that Weeks ended the season with a .230 average isn't the most comforting stat for his owners (although he did hit 20 home runs for the third-consecutive season). But if you traded for Weeks May 22 last year, you got a second baseman who hit .255 with 17 home runs, 14 steals and 24 doubles over his final 440 at-bats. And this is where Weeks' value lies -- trading for him gets you just the good stats on your roster, and none of the bad.
Granted, one has to believe that Weeks will turn it around this year like he did in 2012. But for his career, Weeks is a slightly better player in the seocnd half, and last year's turnaround showed that he could pull himself out of a prolonged slump. It's far from a sure thing, but Weeks can be had for pennies on the dollar, and may be worth the gamble.

(5/19/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is back in the lineup Sunday after resting Saturday, Brewers Radio reports.
Weeks has been worse in May (.480 OPS) than April (.615 OPS) and he's seen a couple extra days off over the past week in attempts to get him right. The club doesn't have any appealing alternatives, so Weeks is likely to keep his job.

(5/18/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks, who received a day off Saturday, could become less of a lock for the starting lineup, according to MLB.com.
"I'll pick some spots where I look at matchups and see if somebody else can go out there and get hot," manager Ron Roenicke said.
Weeks is hitting .146 in May and is hitless in his past two games.
|Struggles earn Rickie Weeks spot on bench|

(5/18/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks was out of the starting lineup Saturday, as he continues to struggle. Weeks got the day off against the Cardinals after going hitless in his previous two games.
Weeks is hitting just .146 in the month of May and has been out of the starting lineup twice in the last week.
|Rickie Weeks hits third home run|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/16/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks hit his third home run of the season Wednesday.
Weeks has been in a major slump this year, hitting .187/.306/.299. In the top of the seventh inning, Weeks sent a Wandy Rodriguez changeup out to left for a solo shot. It was Weeks' first home run since April 30.
|Rickie Weeks began 2012 as a much more patient hitter than he had been in the past, but the results only served to test the patience of Fantasy owners. Longer plate appearances resulted in more walks but also far more strikeouts than usual, which robbed Weeks of points on his batting average and extra-base power. He was far less selective over the last three months of the season, and his relative impatience paid off in the form of a .269/.350/.478 slash line. Those numbers are very much in line with Weeks' production from 2009 to 2011, so it appears that Weeks' .183/.303/.306 line from the first three months was just an outlier. Even with those bad months weighing down his overall numbers, Weeks finished as a top 12 second baseman in standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head formats. He can probably be had in the early portion of the middle rounds, and if he can stay healthy and maintain more consistency, he could wind up being a steal. (Updated 1/2/13)|
