Garrett Atkins was just dropped. After that 2 HR game a week ago i thought he was turning it around, but he only has 2 singles since then. I don't think he's worth the #1 waiver (especially since i have PooHoles and Miggy at 1st and 3rd), but i just dropped Jake Fox (figured i'll pick him back up in 2 weeks when they play in AL parks, don't want to waste a spot on my bench now) and i'm using that spot as a 2nd spot to stream SP for the moment. Is it worth picking him up when he clears waivers?

edit: my only other player eligible at 1B or 3B is Sandoval (both) but with Soto struggling, and consequently not getting ABs, Sandoval is being used at C regularly. Don't plan on benching PooHoles or Miggy...ever...but if they get hurt i don't have a backup plan.

You don't need Atkins.
