Every year, a certain number of fantasy players create a big debate among fantasy owners. We asked Keith Law to give his thoughts on some questions surrounding some of this year's most divisive guys.

Q: Jacoby Ellsbury seems to be the one person fantasy owners don’t believe in as much ESPN's fantasy experts do: We have him ranked No. 7, his average draft position is 12. What do you think?

If he's healthy he'll produce, and his injuries have never been of the chronic variety.

Q: Starlin Castro killed his owners last season, some of whom will not take a chance on him again this season. But he’s still so young. If he can overcome his hammy issues, is he poised to bounce back?

I don't think he's "poised" to bounce back, and the hamstring never struck me as a valid explanation for what went wrong with him as he's not much of a runner. His approach stinks -- his plate discipline is bad, and his mental plan at the plate does not exist.
